We have been working on this for sometime. Something has happened whether it be a virus or a hijack. We can't get to any search engine. When we try all we get is :

Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.google.com.

* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

All other websites work fine. This is very weird. We have tried alot of things mention here on this website. Here is the URL to that topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...p;#entry1429032

I have tried running DDS, but it will either tell me a file is in use already and it can't continue, or it just appears to keep running never giving me the results. I have let it run for well over 30 mins. So for now, I'm skipping it.

Anyways, I truly hope we can figure this out. It is really frustrating. LOL

Do you think that it will cause any other trouble? Is it safe for me to do my online banking?

I know that I'm not supposed to reply to this thread, but it's been 5 days and I thought this post might have gotten lost. Sorry if it hadn't, was just curious.
