Cant get into Google!

  subi 12:05 01 Feb 2007

I use Google as my first choice Search Engine, but have been unable to get into the site since last night.
Have tried with IE7 & Mozilla Firefox but no joy.
Deleted my Google Bookmarks ( Favourites ) on both Browsers & also Google Earth, as it also was giving problems, but still can't get into the search page.
If I search on Yahoo for Google, all the sites are displayed but no matter which one I click - com,, etc. no access happens!!!
All my other Bookmarks & Favouites are working okay and my ISP connection is fine.
My OS is XP Pro & my ISP is NTL/Telewest.
Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

Sounds like a Cookie or firewall problem,Or try Double clicking the privacy report on status bar,Make sure that it has not been blocked.

Try this predictive text version of Google click here

Its working fine for me, but i and a lot of people have been having the exact same problem over the last few weeks. there were rumours of DoS attacks, Hackers etc trying to get one over on Google.. I eventually gave up trying and changed my home page to Yahoo click here but i keep Google on my favourites still.

Thanks Buteman & BioBob.
Checked Firewall & Cookies & Privacy Report but they are seem okay.
Have Bookmarked the predictive version of Google & am using Yahoo as my home page.
So far, so good.
