Windows 7: use the following dns server addresses...possible malware?

use the following dns server addresses...possible malware?


I have some problem connecting to internet lately (past 2-weeks, perhaps)...I could connect to wifi, but not access internet.

I finally discovered that "use the following dns server addresses" was directed to 2-addresses.
I reset to "obtain dns server address automatically" and everything works fine now.

my concern is whether some malware/virus/trojan could have been at work since I don't know why it would have not been set to automatic all along.
is there a way to retrieve what was the IP addresses in the box "use the following dns server addresses", as I did not take note of them before changing, and how long this had been in effect?

thank you

Hi pson, if you set the DNS servers in your router, it will override your pc.
