Please help i'm getting desperate

Internet explorer or firefox won't open any google websites or facebook.

I have done several different anti spyware searches and use AVG.

When i try to open google it come up with the following:

We are currently experiencing a large scale DDOS attack that has hit our sites which started at approximately 6:00am EST Sunday. We are working with our data center to resolve and/or mitigate this issue. More information will be posted here as we get updates.

this has been happening for about the past month, but with different results a few weeks ago it was saying i had been attached by spyware

any suggestions?

It seems that Facebook has been infected by the Koobface virus as of last Friday. Here is one account of it.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Can you not currently access google or facebook or just at certain times?

Are you completely sure that you don't have any malware.

If so then I think I have a solution

I can't get them to open at all, it was all fine up until about the 13th november then all of a sudden i couldn't use google.

I have used AVG which doesn't find any problems and spy bot which found some problems but i fixed them but still can't access google or facebook.

Do you think you can help?
