Hi there... google stopped loading on me today randomly. I was using it and suddenly it came up as "the connection was reset" and hasn't worked since. I have restarted my computer (as a last attempt), pinged and traced google, and had friends look under google help but have found nothing. When pinging google seems to come up fine. I read another topic where checking the hosts file was advised so I opened mine.
I'm not sure if that's what they were talking about when asking if there was anything after the 127.0.0.1 localhost line but I figured I'd try throwing it out there to get some help. I have not recently added or changed anything on my computer or noticed anything else strange. No pup-ups or viruses, nothing. PLEASE help.. very much needed!
