Ok.. don't panic

wait, no,
That's not it at all.. .but tomorrow if you are using one of the over 4 million computers that has been infected with specific malware, you won't be able to connect to the internet.. .at all.
So you probably want to know if this is going to wreck your day right?

Cause I don't know about YOU, but that would put a serious crimp in MY day.

It's actually really easy. You can test your computer in a matter of seconds and chances are unless you click on a bunch of links all the time you should be fine... but if you do click links, or your mom or uncle or sister or neighbor does on their computer... you need to know.

You can do this in 1 of 2 ways, first the easy one.
Click here...

If the page is green and looks like this...
You are totally fine.

If it turns red, you are either going to need to go here
and follow these directions or else I'd recommend calling your ISP and having someone walk you through it. Depends on how techie you are.

The other method of checking is to go to google, type in what's my ip to obtain your ip address

Copy your IP and go to this site.

Paste your IP and hit check.
Your results are insant.

If not, then see above.
