I can't open www.google.com or any site that has google on it. It starts looking for the site and then it just hangs up and eventually times out. I thought maybe it was a virus, but I am not redirected to any other site, I just can't open that one. I am using a toshiba qosmio laptop F10 and I reformatted the hard drive and reloaded the recovery software to try to get rid of the problem. The only things I have reloaded are Norton Internet Security and Windows live messenger. I tried disabling the Internet security and accessing google.com, but I still can't get it. The wierd part is that I have another computer connected to the same router as my laptop and I have no trouble getting google on it, so I know the site is not down. It worked on the laptop fine until a couple of weeks ago. Accessing any other site works. Any help would be appreciated. Note - I saw that "newlinerealty" was also having google problems in another post and tried the suggestions that members made there (like trying https instead of http) and i also tried the link to google in that post, but they did not work.
