Hey everybody, I was just wondering if Google.com or any other search engines were working for you? For the last two days or so I haven't been able to go to google.com or altavista.com. Is this happening to anyone else?

I FOUND THE PROBLEM! I tried to go to google.com, and this website came up saying "Are you trying to go to google.com?" and this is what it said:

Your computer is running software that doesn't allow you to use Google.

You're seeing this page because your computer is trying to send you to a website that is pretending to be Google. Over the past few weeks, you may have seen a website that looks like Google, but launches pop-up windows and does not work like Google. That page is not affiliated with Google in any way and is intended to deceive you.

Why is this happening?

Most likely a program was installed on your computer automatically and without your knowledge when you downloaded an otherwise harmless piece of software. Or you may have been tricked into clicking on a disguised download button while visiting a website.

Finally, then it told me to go into the "Windows" folder in my computer, then open this file called "hosts" and delete anything that has to do with www.google.com
