You can use netsh to change DNS settings.

For example, to add a DNS server to the "Local Area Connection" interface.

netsh interface ip add dns "Local Area Connection" 194.168.4.100

Open in new window

It needs to be done in vb6 through an app.  After they uninstall the app, it will need to reset the settings back to original.
