    ok, everytime i try to go to google.com every time, instead of the site i get this the picture is at http://rob150680.tripod.com/google anyways what is the deal with that , how do i get google back.


    also i can still go to www2.google.com , and like www.google.au etc but just the normal google is messed up. It sucks because i have the toolbar and can't use it.

    check your hosts file in system32\drivers\etc and look for that link's IP, it could be linked to google.com and the other google addresses.

    never heard of a website screwing with some1&#39;s hosts file, but that does sound reasonable.

    HiJack This (Freeware)

    This is a GREAT program that can fix browser hi-jackings. You can use it to remove any modifications that were done to your IE. Extra buttons, plug-ins, unwanted toolbars, unwanted redirections. This program helped me out soo many times.

    it&#39;s not the site, per say, a tiny little program can do that and/or software installtion who do touch that file can do that. Or even like the above post, played in registry.

    for example, if u put the followings in ur HOSTS file:
    207.218.251.60 www.google.com
    216.239.37.100 www.klboard.ath.cx

    everytime u type google.com, ul get this board and visa versa. I&#39;ve played that little trick on my friends before. Also, I have it setup on the kids PCs to avoid bad sites too.
