    Hi,

    I have recently encountered a problem accessing google.com (as well as gmail, which is my main problem!).
    I am getting an error message: "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage".
    I have tried it using several browsers (IE8, Firefox3, Chrome), and neither works.
    I also tried disabling the Windows Firewall and my protection program (Kasparsky) and it still doesn't work.
    Other websites, including google.co.il are working just fine, by the way.
    Also, I have 2 other comuters connected to the internet through the same router (1 connected physically and the other through wireless connection) and in those I CAN access google.com - the problem is only from this single computer!

    This is a real pain - I would greatly appreciate your help!

    Thanks

    Sorry, it might be a trivial question, but still...
    I do NOT use google toolbar, by the way.

    Run a virus scan, see if that works. Sounds like your browser may have been hijacked..amongst other things. but start with a virus scan.

    I ran a virus scan (using Kasparsky) and a spyware scan (adaware).
    Nothing came up.

    I saw that in other similar cases people were using Hijack This program, so I ran it on my computer, and this was the logfile I got.
    I don't understand what it means and what should I do next. Can anyone help please?

    Ok, guys, the mystery is solved.
    Following a friend's recommendation, I looked for the file named "Hosts" (it was under "Windows\System32\Drivers\etc" folder).
    It had the google.com domain under a false IP address (66.249.93.99).
    I deleted all the google.com records, and Voila! the site is back up.

    Thanks for all the helpers!
