Cannot access search engines
Hi all!

My computer was infected with the Security Tool virus a few days ago, but I managed to clear it with Spyware Doctor. However, since then I have not been able to access any search engines. To be more accurate, I cannot access Google and MSN at all, but I can get to the main page and e-mail of Yahoo.

This is the error message I get when trying to access Google:

Failed to Connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at google.com.

Though the site seems valid, the browser was unable to establish a connection.

* Could the site be temporarily unavailable? Try again later.
* Are you unable to browse other sites? Check the computer's network connection.
* Is your computer or network protected by a firewall or proxy? Incorrect settings can interfere with Web browsing.
