Internet Explorer and Edge does not open websites - Chrome works fine.

Internet explorer and Edge does not open webpages giving the following error: There was a temporary DNS error. Try refreshing the page.
Error Code: INET_E_RESOURCE_NOT_FOUND. When accessing the internet with Chrome, it works without any problems and you can access any website. I have reset network settings and also flushed the dns and cleared everything in the browsers. Nothing made a difference. Any idea what is causing this? Windows 10 pro is the operating system and this problem started about 2 weeks ago.
