    Google won't load in any browser?


    Hey everyone,

    Just a few hours ago, I have started experiencing a problem in which Google will no longer load.
    I have already tried the following:
    • Scanning my computer with MalwareBytes and removing all detected malware
    • Renaming my 'hosts' file to 'hosts.old'
    • Using Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge instead of my preferred browser, Google Chrome
    • Clearing all browsing data, including cookies and cache
    • Flushing my cache using Command Prompt

    I use Google almost all the time and would be extremely happy if anyone could give me a working solution. If you need them, my computer specification is in my 'Tech Specs' area.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Troy Cooper

    Hi Troy,
    If you are using the default dns from your ISP, switch to either Open DNS or google DNS, not forgetting to change in both router setting and Networking and sharing centre. HTH.

    Why didn't I think of that OpenDNS worked for me. Thanks anyway!

As of today, the Mail app, when opened just stays on the splash screen and doesn't load. Any fix for this? I would try to uninstall/reinstall but as far as I know, Windows won't let you do that with this particular app.

If like me, you prefer to use Google for searching (and if your default browser is Chrome), there are a couple of extensions that will redirect Cortana's Bing search to Google. Seems to work well so far. The one I've tried is called "Bing2Google."...
