Can Only Access Google through IP

February 10, 2012 at 16:00:00
Specs: Windows 7, 3.00 GB
My computer blue screened the other day, and after reinstalling Flash the blue screen problem ceased. However, after I fixed the blue screen, I could not access Google. Whenever I attempt it, I am met with a "Internet cannot display the webpage" screen.

It's not just Google itself, but Google Finance, Google Images, Google Maps, etc.

However, I can access Google through their IP, Just the search engine. When I PING in Command Prompt, my computer is accessing Google just fine. Following a tip, I accessed my hosts folder in my System 32. I had a similar issue with for a few months now, though I never tried their IP, and I found the website listed there. I deleted it, and now is fine again.

My main problem with Google was not resolved however. There is still an IP in there,, but I'm not sure what it is.

My computer is running Windows 7 Ultimate.

Help would be appreciated. Thanks.
