    LOL. Guess my VPN DNS isn't leaking. I got the following message:

    "DNS Resolution = GREEN

    Your computer appears to be looking up IP addresses correctly!

    Had your computer been infected with DNS changer malware you would have seen a red background. Please note, however, that if your ISP is redirecting DNS traffic for its customers you would have reached this site even though you are infected. For additional information regarding the DNS changer malware, please visit the FBI's website at:

    Regards.

    I would hazard a guess that the vast majority of Wilders members are able to report back that their systems returned green results.
    The real service to be performed is to get that applicable DNS Changer Check-Up link in front of as many non-techie friends as possible, and have them report back what their results are. ;)

    Kaspersky Lab's TDSSKiller detects and removes DNSChanger, as does HitmanPro, along with other tools.
