Why won't my browser allow me to load Google pages/links or Bing?

When I try to go to Google.com, an error message comes up and says, "The connection has timed out. The server at www.google.com is taking too long to respond."

It also does this at Bing.com and if I do a Yahoo search, but I can get on Yahoo.com to check e-mail.

Re: Why won't my browser allow me to load Google pages/links or Bing?

I have started seeing the same issue as well. In fact able to get to sites like microsoft.com, oracle.com, but not igoogle.com, gmail.com, google.com or bing.com amongst others, and same as you re yahoo.com to search. I tried from IE 8/9, Firefox 4, Opera and Chrome and all have the same problem so I don't think this is just a Firefox problem.

I see nothing in the registry indicating the sites that fail, although have just had a visit from a program "Best Malware Protection" which I wouldn't be surprised if it had a hand in this before I removed it. (Seems I can no longer open the Task Manager as well anymore).

Perhaps these are unrelated, but perhaps not

If anyone comes across an resolution I would greatly appreciate hearing about it Thanks
