Ok wierd problem earlier today while browsing i got disconected from yahoo and google. I tried pinging 0 response. I uninstalled my IOLO system mechanic firewall , made sure windows was turned off etc. I still couldnt connect to either web site.

I then decided to format my PC after a night full of headaches. Still with a fresh boot and install I type in google or yahoo and try to ping both and still no luck.

Anyone got any luck what could be the problem?

check out your network settings. And did you make a clean install or you just install windows over the old installation?

He stated that he formatted and then installed..

How exactly are you pinging the sites?

If you can get to other sites you may have accidentally blocked one or both of those sites...

My advice:
START/RUN/cmd (enter)
NSLOOKUP www.yahoo.com (enter)

Use IP(s) listed and ping the IP NOT the webname

If that works highlight the IP and put that in your search bar... presto you are on the site.

If it does NOT work it is definately one of two issues:
DNS
or
Security block

Think backto when this first happened and ask yourself if you installed ANYTHING new...

Get back to us and we can help you some more.

Sorry for the extremely late reply. The problem turned out to be my ISP's dns server was down which was causing all these problems.


Thank you to everyone that tried to help. I appreciate it greatly.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
