Hi guys when I try to visit google.co.uk or google.com I get IE cannot display web page. What have I done wrong? I use PC Guard - scan says no virus - Internet options does not show it as blocked site - where else can I look ? The search bar at the top of the page says the same thing even if I search with Bing. I can do a search on the Virgin Media homepage but can't visit google.
Advice please !

Have you checked your Firewall?

Thanks Buteman ! I rather like the idea that Google is turned off & I'm the only one in the world who noticed LOL. But I did check and google is working but not for me!
Thanks Technotiger. I use PC Guard and it lists Programs that are allowed & blocked but no mention of google. What would it say in the firewall file ?

Try and see if you can get it with the firewall turned off.

Thanks Buteman - Tried that no luck. I did manage to get google by using a proxy server. So I turned on the proxy server button in internet options - but that didn't work. Any more ideas please ?

Its now fixed ! I emailed Kaspersky. the problem was a virus packedwin32tdssz - They suggested running TDSSKILLER in safemode & combifix ( a script they compiled for me ! )from their website
It worked Apparently there was a redirect to go.mail.ru which was stopped by kaspersky but needed a manual fix to resolve. Brilliant service-free if you have online banking !
