You can check your PC by clicking this link. If the backround is green, your PC is ok. If backround is red, you're screwed.

Lol. Red isn't a good thing, but it doesn't mean you're screwed. It's a cleanable infection. It could also just be your router which, for most home and small offices, is an easy fix.

No need to panic.

Monday should be a nice, quiet, speedy day on the 'net without all the people who can't/won't/couldn't/wouldn't update their virus protection.

I don't know that we will even notice the loss of the "estimated" 64,000 affected computer users. Oh well.

I think it's all going to be much ado about nothing.

I think my favorite quote about this DNSChanger thing was this from John Abell:

"But the worst-case scenario here is that you won't be able to do anything (on the web) until you do the fix. And the fix is really quite simple.

"If you don't know how to do it, get a teenager," Abell added.
