Commented:
run
cmd

ipconfig /flushdns

this will flush the DNS.
In the actual DNS server, you have to select the zone and remove the A records that you wish to eliminate.

Commented:
If you want to turn off DNS caching you can use net stop dnscache command.

If you just want to clear DNS cache you can also use DNSCMD command that will clear the cache.

GO  to RUN
type CMD
ENTER

then type

DNSCMD /clearcache
