I use OpenDNS which has also got these sort of tools to stop you going to dodgy sites and supplying phishing info, also to known phishing sites.

Just do it manually in Windows , no download needed. Works fine, Cheers.

1.Open the Control Panel from your Start menu.
2.Click Network Connections and choose your current connection.
3.On the General tab of the Connection Status screen, click Properties.
4.On the General tab of Connection Properties, scroll down and select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), then click Properties.
5.On the General tab of Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties, select Use the following DNS server addresses, then enter the two NortonDNS
IP addresses and
6.Click OK until each window is closed. You are now using NortonDNS.

Had a try at that one and it would not let me sign up.
Tried a few times and just the same.
So tried Rob_08's method and could not do that either.
I messed about for a while as I was just copying and pasting before the penny dropped that he had added a dot at the end of the final 1.
but managed it in the end but not sure If it was done correctly.
There were 2 addresses TCP/IP v6.
And TCP/IPv4.
I picked the IPv4 one

And then changed the DNS Server Addresses and not the IP server Addresses so not sure if I did it properly.
I should add using W7 just in case it may be different in that.

If you are using a router don't you need to change the DNS in that as well?

No Router.

Hi gengiscant downloaded the instructions from Rob_08 For the Norton one providing that I did it right.
So will see how i get on with that.

Anyone confirm that TCP/IPv4 was the correct one to change or should I also have changed TCP/IPv6.
