Quick question regarding something I encountered last night. I was typing in a channel address for Youtube and pressed enter to take me to the page. I instead was taken to what looked like an ad, featuring the youtube logo, but clearly not an official ad of any kind. My friend who was with me said I probably had Malware on my iMac.

You'll have to resort to your router's documentation on how to change the DNS server to the custom one. For on your Mac.. do a Google search for: How To Change DNS Settings Mac
