    I don't know where to post this question. I cannot access Google.com, google search, etc. I can only access my gmail account and nothing more.
    For some reason, I suddenly could not open anything Google. I seem to be able to use google chrome, as long as I use Yahoo as the search engine. I contacted my ip server and they say there is nothing wrong with my wireless. Can anyone help me?
    Does anyone know why this is happening and/or how to fix it?
    Please.....I would really appreciate any help
    Thank you

    Have you tried pinging google.com?
    Open start, click on run if using XP or just type in cmd and press enter in the search space.
    Then type in ping www.google.com or just ping google.com
    See if you get any results data; how bytes received, how many bytes lost.

    Computer crashed when applying DST updates to Outlook 2003. Since then cant access www.google.com except by ip address. This computer can access any other website by url. Identical computer in the same LAN can access google by url.

    lonniefilkins, start your own thread about your problem as hijacking another member's thread is a forum rule no no. try a system restore to before the Outlook 2003 updates.

    Not trying to spam but just a suggestion, have you tried using startpage.com? They utilize googles search engine while maintaining privacy.
