Flush the local DNS cache

Flushing will clear all the saved details, so that the computer can check and re-save a website's details the next time it tries to load the site during a web browsing session.
Clear the browser DNS cache

If you are aware of and accept the potential risk associated with this program, you can configure the F-Secure security product to exclude it from further scanning.
A False Positive is when a file is incorrectly detected as harmful, usually because its code or behavior resembles known harmful programs. A False Positive will usually be fixed in a subsequent database update without any action needed on your part. If you wish, you may also:
Check for the latest database updates
First check if your F-Secure security program is using the latest updates, then try scanning the file again.
Submit a sample
After checking, if you still believe the file is incorrectly detected, you can submit a sample of it for re-analysis.
Note: If the file was moved to quarantine, you need to collect the file from quarantine before you can submit it.
Exclude a file from further scanning
If you are certain that the file is safe and want to continue using it, you can exclude it from further scanning by the F-Secure security product.
Note: You need administrative rights to change the settings.
DNS Unlocker is typically distributed bundled together with other software. It is promoted as a utility program that gives users more control over the DNS settings used by their computers (so that users may, for example, bypass content controls that restrict web browsing).
When installed and run, the program also injects advertising content during the web browsing session. These ads are marked as 'Ads by DNS-Unlocker', but may be considered unsolicited and annoying to the user.
