 PC Won't Load Anything Google or Bing Related
topic by Akira Son Bio - 11-13-2011, 08:28 AM - Boxden > Tech Questions and Answers


I am having an issue with my Dell PC. Its running Windows XP.

I don't know if I got a virus a while back or what but something happened one day where I can't do any searches on google or bing. Gmail doesn't even work. I've done virus scans, deleted the stuff that they found but still nothing. Tried deleting the browser and installing a new one (firefox and chrome) and still no luck. Trying to find info about this online hasn't helped much either.

Anyone ever run into this problem or knows what might cause this? Thanks for the help in advance.

Mods close this. Fixed it, after a month of battling with it.

Solution:

Search "HOSTS" in C:. Delete the most recent one or when the problem started.

^^^ That is exactly what I wanted to post.

It's usually located here : C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc


But who the #### did that to you?

I have no idea. My stepson finds these free games to play online and we got hit with it then.

Had to shut that down after that
