Hi, i receive a message from google that my ipad 2 was infected with the dns changer, i also checked this on dns-changer.eu and they confirm to me that my ipad is infected. Is there a way to remove this virus from the ipad?

No it isn't. Your iPad cannot get a virus. Read this very recent discussion about the dns changer bot.

If you have the virus, it would be a first. Read this article

The message you got was a scam.

 

The article states

 

Linux, iPhone, iPad and Android devices, however, cannot be affected by the virus, which redirects users to servers controlled by cyber criminals.
