Can't access google.com
Hi there. My desktop computur running Windows XP can't access google.com, but otherwise seems to access other sites. I use Internet Explorer. I scanned my pc with malwarebytes (nothing was detected) & superantispyware (detected about 60 tracking cookies). Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi and welcome to TSG!


Click here to download HJTInstall.exe
  • Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
  • Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
  • Click on Install.
  • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
  • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
  • DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Download the HostsXpert 4.4 - Hosts File Manager.
  • Unzip HostsXpert 4.4 - Hosts File Manager to a convenient folder such as C:\HostsXpert 4.4 - Hosts File Manager
  • Run HostsXpert 4.4 - Hosts File Manager from its new home
  • Click on "File Handling".
  • Click on "Restore MS Hosts File".
  • Click OK on the Confirmation box.
  • Click on "Make Read Only?"
  • Click the X to exit the program.
  • Note: If you were using a custom Hosts file you will need to replace any of those entries yourself.



And if that doesn't work (although it should) this article explains how to reset your Hosts file in Windows XP: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/972034

Hi and thanks for your help so far, cheeseball81.

After downloading HostsXpert 4.4 - Hosts File Manager and following your instruction, I clicked OK on the Confirmation box.
Then I got a pop up: ERROR: CANNOT CREATE FILE C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\ETC\hosts and couldn't finish it.

I am not sure if I should go ahead with the link (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/972034) in your last post.

Thanks again for your help.

Sorry for the delay... I was supposed to be home yesterday but my flight was cancelled due to the bad weather in NY.

Yes you can proceed to the next step. Otherwise, you could do this...

Rescan with Hijack This.
Close all browser windows except Hijack This.
Put a check mark beside these entries and click "Fix Checked".
