Resolved Question

DNS Changer

by beachangel1 / May 18, 2012 9:53 PM PDT

I just saw the post about possibly losing your internet connection on July 9th. I went to the website and it does not have a way for you to check your computer if you are using Windows Vista. Does anyone know if there is a way to check if you have Windows Vista? I can't find anything online. I am sure there are others who use Vista like me and would like to know what to do.

Thanks for the help.

Have a great weekend!

that this malware is OS specific.

Have you tried the simple browser test page here? http://www.dns-ok.us/

If you see a green background your computer is fine.

I didn't know what you meant by background being green. Nice suprise to click the link you provided and it showed a green background. I feel better knowing I'm not infected. Happy

Thanks again,

was still listed ! Now what? How do I get rid of it?
