Totally baffled. Recently my laptop stopped accessing anything that begins with "google" (I get a "not a valid address" page) ... but only at home, at the office it accesses google just fine. To add to the strangeness, two other laptops in the house are having no problems accessing google on the same home wireless.
I've run Spybot and other virus software
I've uninstalled Google Toolbar (that triggered some warnings from Spybot)
I deleted history ...
... flushed the dns cache
I've even tried the good cop/bad cop routine with the laptop ... but nothing has worked.
