The solution might be http://www.opendns.com/ but even this can pawned if your router and ISP itself are compromised. People can set up a virtual host completely and it does not matter what DNS settings you put in your computer thinks that it is connected to the right network anyway.

Comodo straight from my Uncle's backyard in New Jersey USA has free secure DNS servers for everyone to use as well.

Here is the addresses and setup information :).
