Preferred DNS server sets to 127.0.0.1 automatically

My problem is with the IPv4 properties; I get connection when DNS is set to 'obtain automatically' but a few minutes after setting this, it changes to a preferred server called 127.0.0.1, the reroute to nowhere! Now i have to go back there every few minutes and change this setting if I want to connect.

Google was useless, I ran anti-malware, rebooted and reset all connections to both WiFi and Ethernet connection to the modem, tried all the command prompt tricks and nothing works.
