    Cannot get to Google


    If I type in www.google.com in the address bar on any of the 3 browsers on my friend's computer, it cannot get there. Gives an error. But if I go to Bing and search for Google and click on the result, it gets to www.google.com just fine.

    If I open a cmd window and ping www.google.com, it times out.

    I checked the Hosts files, nothing in there except the usual.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Try these..

    Disable security software.

    Clear temp files using CCleaner.

    Reset browser to defaults.

    Edit: Open elevated command prompt > Type: ipconfig /flushdns

    Thanks, but those did not help. I just used the ip address for google and set it to his homepage.
