For about six months now I have been unable to access google from IE8 browser. I have it set as my home page but it will always timeout and give an "internet explorer can not display the web page" message. I have tried emptying cache, malware and virus scanning, reinstalling IE, updating and rolling back the system...the list goes on. I can get google images, google maps, google mail and google video but the main page (www.google.com) will not load. Can't even get to it manually by putting it in the address bar or navigating to it by IP address.

The reason I am so determined to get it fixed now after six months is that I was putting the problem down to the poor service I was getting from my previous ISP. I changed ISP last week and would like to "start fresh"so to speak. Any ideas. Anyone who has experienced this problem and found a fix would be appreciated. PLEASE HELP!

Edit: Oh, and I have also changed browsers and tried FF and google chrome also both with the same problem...

Go to command prompt, and type "ping www.google.com" (without the quotes), then copy/paste the results you get.
