My Computer won't go to Google!
No matter what website I choose to go to I am able to do so, and rather quickly. But I cannot get to <www.google.com>. It is very aggravating since it is such a popular site.
If you can help me work this out, please do.
Thank you.

Click on hosts.

Choose Notepad from the list of programs to open the file with.

Copy the content and paste it into your next reply.

Please do not start more than one thread for the same issue.

I closed the other thread where Phantom was helping you with this that you abandoned over a week ago.

http://forums.techguy.org/web-email/...correctly.html

Please continue working in this one until the issue is resolved.

I see you also have another thread about problems installing Flash. Both of these problems may be tied together. What happens when you try to install Flash?
