can't access google.com
for last month or so, I am not able to access google.com , I can access google.co.in
The problem is not my ISP since I can access google.com from another laptop I have.
I also noticed that while registering on utorrent forum, I can't register since I can't see
the recaptcha. But I can see this recaptcha from my second laptop. I have this shareware
anti spyware program called spyware doctor. When I ran the scan with it, it said that there
is some website hack on my pc for google.com . Since its shareware program, it won't rectify
the problem. When I ran the scan through another free program I have (spybot search and
destroy), it didn't identify any such website hack for google.com. I have cleared all the
cookies from my chrome browser, but the problem is still there. I can't access google.com and
can't see recaptcha on the utorrent forum site. I also noticed another behavior of my chrome
browser. When I click some website through google.co.in searches, the 'back' button in
my chrome browser becomes inactive. This doesn't happen for all the sites. Only sometimes.
So please suggest some soln.

I have recently started having the same problem. I got some Malware on my laptop and afterwards started having random issues with google. Anytime I do a search on google and then click on one of the results I am taken to some other random website and then cannot click "back" to the search results. Now, I can't get to google.com at all, but gmail still works. Every time we run a scan of my laptop it no issues were found. Did you ever figure out how to solve it?

Hi I solved the problem. The problem was with the file "hosts" in the C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc. I use win xp. You have to edit the file. Follow directions at http://www.dslreports.com/faq/10131
Edit: As suggested on the above website, I installed free software HostsXpert and added # in front of last two lines which forbid the pc to access google.com and bing.com . I think
you can as well delete those lines and it should work
