Cannot connect to www.google.com

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Sorry if this is in the wrong section.. Anyway.

This problem is very recent, a few hours ago without doing anything or modifying anything or touching anything, I couldn't load google.com anymore. It just gets stuck on "Connecting to www.google.com" and times out, it responds to ping but I just cannot load it in both Firefox OR IE. I've cleared cache/cookies/temp internet files etc, and looked for other "hosts" files on my PC but found nothing so I'm not sure whats wrong. I'm pretty positive it's not a malware problem because like I said, I haven't downloaded anything or gone to any suspicious websites since it stopped working. And all other websites are loading fine. Any ideas please? Thanks.

Manually change your DNS to OpenDNS and post back.

Also, what ISP?

I'm actually already using the openDNS servers as my ISP dns sucks. ISP is o2 broadband which is pretty much BE.

Hmm... O2 and Be tend to be the best ISP's around. Try going back to your ISP's DNS addresses. Also, do a virus/malware sweep. Things like that have been known to block websites.

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns
ipconfig /renew

Tried that in that order? I'm new to this network stuff too so I'm no expert, but it's worth a try, feel free to correct me if I made any huge error.

Gone back to default DNS, no luck. Will run a scan now.

Ok.. what the hell. It's decided to load again now for some reason. Dunno what the hell was up with it. Hopefully it doesn't decide to crap out on me again .

Perhaps it was the DNS change

EDIT: Actually, can't have been since Google works on OpenDNS for me. Maybe your ISP accidentally spammed it with info and it temp banned your IP?
