The top box should be checked but I don't understand why when I do a look up on your IP address it comes up as Chinese but when you do it, it returns as for your ISP.

Have you ran AdwCleaner and checked your Hosts file ?

Hi, Boggins, sorry for late reply. While i was reading your reply, my system suddenly hangs and i could not boot. Inspection shows, that mb went dead. I could not get the screen, as it was a second hand. i tried my removng ram, removing mobo battery etc, but i could not get any light on monitor. I could not go to bios as well. i called tech help and he said , the mother board need to be replaced with the supported ddr2 to make it workable.
                                               i had changed the mb and ram , and i could access the computer main screen. But, due to the fact, that it is a new motherboard, the drivers of lan, and some others could not be installed with the existing OS. Further action was necessitated by saving docu and downloads folder to d: and then reinstaling of the fresh OS.
                              Now , i am writing reply from that pc and hence the delay. As for hosts file, i do not think that now it is necessary. anyhow , i will check, if the router has injected some links in to it.
                              Regarding the mod ip, i do not know , how you are getting the chinese ip, myself getting the ISP's ip, i think, it still needs proble.But the ip you mentioned me to check, was not at all found in my search.
                              I use speedtest.net.in , to view my external ip, and it shows as ISP's like your link of search of ip link.
I will download avast and check . But, my query remains , as how google dns allows access of some malaysian website host to my router.
You said that i have not made it clear for you on that . Let me say, that when dns hijack is prompted, the avast asks you to switch to public google dns. But switching from service provider should be safe enough.
                                   By checking the dnsleak.c om (enclosed  results) and router check app, i came to the  issue of another dns silently accessing  it at times. Now i think i make it clear that changing of dns pose some other problem.
                                    please

Change your DNS servers to 209.244.0.3 and 209.244.0.4 to see if you still get these alerts or redirects.

These DNS servers belong to Level Three and are what I use.

If you ping them, you can compare their latency to Google's.

Hi, I will try these ip addresses. Now , i am having internet speed problem and once it is corrected, then i will change to it. Did you see shinjiro, website in my enclosure? That does not belong to google. So, i am hesitating to use google dns. No reply from google public dns support or forum on the clarifications sought.Thanks

You didn't attach that log, so no - I didn't see that website.

Thought you were referring to something else.

Change your DNS servers to 209.244.0.3 and 209.244.0.4 and run that DNS leak program again and see what those results are.

From that log, you seem to have had a few IP addresses but I don't know why it lists Google as your ISP.

Hi, i give below. Due to the fact that i was informed by avast that my dns have been hacked, i switched to google dns and the log picture is when i use google dns in my router.Fearing that unknown servers at time access my router, i changed my router dns back to my service provider, which usually ended in usual scan result of dns hijack. I tried nslookup to those hijacked domains and it pointed to my ISP servers ip. I wrote to all concerned , to avast whether it is false positive to my ISP. No repliy came from any side.
                         Meanwhile, i chanced upon contacting the correct person in my service provider wing  and told about this . He has informed that those are blocked sites already and specific sites have been redirected to that ip. so, it is actually false positive to me then, and i reported the same to avast also. Now i know that it is a false alarm, as avast has included and it does not fetch the correct ips of those domains,  it always alerts as dns hijacked as a possible alert.
                              My query is when i changed to public google dns, i was having the weird problem of a unknown shinjiru server is shown as a dns server, along with the configured google dns.
                               i think i  made it clear .
                                  So, i queried if using public dns is safe or not ? If i use the google dns, i do not get the dns hijack alert, but some other problem of dns access. ok

Like I said, try those other DNS severs and see what is reported.
