Kuphostiwe

For the past 3 days I have been getting the error message: "The connection has timed out The server at www.google.com is taking too long to respond.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web."

Whenever I try to load google or gmail or any other google related website. I have had no problems loading any other website. No changes were made prior to this error starting, I have run updated antivirus and anti malware programs, cleared cookies cache and browser history, restarted several times, even restarted to last known good configuration, nothing has fixed the problem.

Thank you very much for your response, I have followed all the steps you listed, including the shockwave uninstall/update.

However unfortunately I still cannot access google.com. As before, all other websites I try load just fine, but google will not.

First check whether you can access Google related sites on browsers other than Firefox i.e. Chrome, Opera, or IE

If you can't access on other browses too, then its a problem with your ISP, they must have blocked 1e100.net (google's content network) Your firewall or antivirus may have blocked it too, check those too..

Check if google sites are opening with some free proxies like https://hide.me/en/proxy

Neither Chrome nor IE will load google either but using firefox the free proxy link you provided loaded google instantly!

I had previously checked the windows firewall and my Microsoft Security Essentials, Avast, and Malwarebytes and did not find anything within them pointing to google as a problem or restriction.

If this lies with my ISP is there anything further I can do via my computer or is the proxy solution my only real option until things rectify on their end?

>pointing to google as a problem or restriction

It might not be pointed to Google, it may be pointed to 1e100.net, check that.. Also, contacting your ISP would be a good idea..
