Something is blocking search engine access

February 27, 2011 at 16:23:51
Specs: Windows 7

I cannot access any search engines such as Google, Bing, etc. or even Microsoft.com. I get an error message that Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage. However, I can access Yahoo but I cannot get any search results when I query.

Thank you very much for your reply. Since I am very much a novice when it comes to this technical stuff, I want to be sure we are on the same page with respect to what my problem is. It looks like the links you have provided deal with a Google redirect virus of one sort or another. I'd like to clarify that when I try to go to Google or Bing, I don't get redirected anywhere. I just get an error message that Windows cannot display the webpage. Also, I can access Yahoo but when I put in a query in the search area it just doesn't respond. I ran Malwarbytes but it didn't turn up anything. I hope this helps clarify my issue. Thanks.
