This morning my AVG spyware said I had a malware threat which I moved to the virus vault and rebooted the computer. Now I can't get into any Google site. I can't check my Google calendar or Gmail. It redirects me to a Verizon site (I have Verizon DSL) that states that www.google.com can not be found. I tried my wife's laptop and she can get it on hers as can my daughter on her laptop. So it seems to be just mine. After researcheing the problem through another search engine I started trying diferent things with no good results. Here is what I have so far...
I can ping www.google with no problems.
My host file is empty
If I enter the google isp numbers I got off one website it will pull up Google, allow me to sign in and I can access my gmail. When I click on the calendar icon from this page it drops Google again.
I have cleared all cookies
The problem is with both Firefox (my usual browser) and IE
I have checked security settings and even allowed google.com
My thought is that the malware did something to the browsers to make it block Google, but I don't know. Any help is greatly appreciated.
