I can access any web site etc except search engines. Can any one tell me why this maybe. I have tried an XP restore etc, and I have used both Internet explorer and the new MSN explorer, with the same problem on both.
In addition I have 3 PC's in a LAN, none of which can access the search engine sites (The modem is shared and only attached to the Host PC)
Raboon, Like you I can't access Google, Msn, alta vista, yahoo or lycos search engines. There may be others too but I can't try them all! I can access everything else I've tried so it's not a connection problem. When I click on Google it tries to open 22.214.171.124. I'd like to know if yours does. I'm hearing at work that there is a trojan called,"coolwebsearch" doing the rounds which is redirecting your browser to their web page. However, you can't connect to them due to the amount of traffic being redirected. Adaware and spybot won't detect it. I even tried the Opera browser but that suffers the same . I'd be interested to know if anyone reading this is having similar problems.
