Problem description:
This is happening on two laptops now. Both are MacbookPro laptops with Windows 10 installed using Bootcamp. After updating Windows to 1803 I've found that Chrome no longer works correctly on either laptop. Firefox and Edge work fine. When trying to load a website in Chrome, if I haven't visited that host previously Chrome frequently fails to resolve the DNS and actually times out. After a few retries it eventually works.

Attempted fixes:
I've tried everything I could possibly find. I've flushed the DNS cache in Chrome, I've disabled DNS prefetching. I tried manually setting the DNS to 8.8.8.8. Nothing has worked. 99% of the stuff I'm finding on Google treats the problem as though it's a general networking issue, but it's clearly specific to Chrome so I assume there's something Chrome is doing differently and I'm hoping there's a way to tweak that so I can fix this.

Recent changes: Have you made any changes to your system/configuration recently that might have caused the problem?
Everything seemed to work okay in Chrome before updating to 1803. I've done this a few times now, with three staff laptops and it seems to be repeatable. All laptops tried have been MacBook Pros running Windows 10 under Bootcamp.

Operating system:
Windows 10 Pro, installed using Bootcamp on a MacBook Pro laptop.

I have Googled and read the FAQ:
Yes

Have you tried a full reinstall of Chrome?
