14 June 2012: D-day is coming for people whose computers are infected with the DNSChanger malicious software (malware). Computers that remain infected after 9 July 2012 will have severely crippled internet access, so it’s time to check your computer now.

Even if you have removed DNSChanger malware, it is possible your computer is still using the rogue settings, which will also severely cripple your internet access after 9 July.
