Windows 7: Are you concerned about Security? But!

Are you concerned about Security? But!

Did you know you can't hide yourself from prying eyes? Did you know that your IP address and DNS gives away your location? Bet you didn't know about DNS. When you type in a search engine or type a URl.. That's DNS. "Domain Name service" That's the protocol that provides the framework for web browsing... WWW. There are so many fix's.. But I know your IP can be seen.. Unless you using a Proxy or a VPN. BUT! That doesn't cancel out the DNS.. That is what gives you away. Most don't know this. But here is something simple you could try! Google Public DNS This has been around for some time so I gave it a try. I tested this and my DNS can't be tracked.I used it in conjunction with Ultrasurf. So give it a try! I know I'll get slammed for this. But I know this is a good thing.

O! By the way! By changing your DNS ISP default to Google DNS. You will notice a jump in your NET speed.

EDIT

Test your DNS here.

Concerned about bots
Recently I have received numerous calls from someone claiming to be from the Windows Support Team. I have always hung up on them because I suspected they were phishing. However, the last call said that my PC was being taken over and used as a bot. Has anyone else been receiving these calls?
