When installed the OpenDNS updater will run inyour system tray and send updates to your account whenever your IPaddress changes.This will help ensure that your system preferences areapplied to your network at all times.


NOTE for SKY Broadband Customers these are the IP addresses of the
nameservers

90.207.238.97
90.207.238.99

If you use SKY Broadband a popular UK ISP then it will either be a Black Sagem F@ST router OR a White Netgear DG834G Cloner. The Sky Broadband server can't be changed in the Sagem F@ST Router this needs to be done in the Network Cards setup details for XP HERE , the older white Netgear can be auto-set up from the OpenDNS Store

When all is working you should see this window on the OpenDNS Updater showing you account details this is why you need to register and your dynamic IP address this will warn you when it is changed by your ISP and if you are connected to the OpenDNS nameservers

Is free internet explorer 8 works as original to protect pc from virus


Hi Guest
Internet explorer 8 itself will not protect your Pc from viruses or malware , but it will make your browsing experience more secure and Avoid you going to phishing and scam sites by using the feature called Phishing Filter and Protected Mode ,
It is always advisable to install a seperate Anti Virus software for your Computer
