DNS Changer D-Day

So, if you can't get to www.google.com (or other web pages) on Monday July 9th, chances are you may have been previously infected by the DNS Changer malware. DNS Changer mucks up the computers ability to "translate" www.google.com into an IP address that the computer can work with. You can check before then at this site.  If you do happen to get stuck on Monday (tsk, tsk, tsk), here are a few cheats that will let you still access at least a couple of sites:


Instead of the usual web address, you can use the IP addresses shown below in the browser address bar:


The IP address of www.google.com is 173.194.35.145
The IP address of www.microsoft.com is 64.4.11.20
The IP address of www.dcwg.org is 108.162.205.64
