On Monday hundreds of thousands of computers
will lose their ability to connect to the Internet.
The servers controlling the DNSChanger malware will be shut down, and without them computers which are still infected will cease to be able to do DNS lookups. Getting rid of it isn't easy, and requires a specific set of tools
which would need to be downloaded before Monday. (Or, of course, you could reinstall the OS.)
