I'm going to contact my ISP after i post this because my internet connection has completely failed (won't work on either my laptop or phone). I don't know whether or not dnschanger could completely ruin an internet connection (can it?). When i try to open a webpage, Chrome isn't able to resolve the server's DNS address. Uh oh.

obviously, the purpose of this post is: how can i determine if i am infected with it?

I run windows 7 64-bit. Before the FBI's servers were shutdown, i did look at one of the websites that checked to see if you are infected; it told me that i wasn't. I ran MalwareBytes a few days ago and it showed no infections.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Turns out to have been a false alarm; if someone can tell me how to delete this topic, please do. If an admin/moderator sees this, lock it or delete it - it's up to you.
