I have a laptop running wireless internet connection, Suddenly although Google is set as my default opening page it will not open. I can open any other sites and search engines but not Google.

Any ideas please?

Thanks ArrGee but it lost me I'm afraid

This happened to me a while ago, and found that a trojan was responsible.

Run this and any other anti-spyware applications you may have:

Also, you can set your homepage to Google using this alternative URL:

I cannot get Google from the alternative URL. Also I am unable to open the Mozilla page in order to download Firefox!

I have run Trend Micro, Norton Virus scan and Adaware but no trojaons have been found.

Have you tried to run the anti-spyware I have recommended too? And the second link provided various bit of information on the same subject. Have you attempted any of the resolution recommendations suggested?

Perhaps you have as I noticed that you checked this post as being 'resolved'.

Many thanks for your help ArrGee - I have tried your suggestions but nothing was found trojan wise. I have also run Norton.

I have put a message in the "Google-guy" site you recommended.

Thanks again

Phil

I'll have a hunt around for the solution that I found.

If found, I'll be sure to post it here for you.

In the meantime, try a re-install of IE7
