Huh. If anyone is willing, could you send an email to webmaster [at] google.com with some info:
- the ip address that www.google.com resolves to
- a traceroute/mtr (even better)
That might give us enough to debug it. I doubt it's a problem on our end, but we'd be happy to check it out though. Thanks in advance if anyone is able to send that on..

After editing you HOSTS file (remove very line that contains a Google domain name), you need to restart your machine. There is a DOS-prompt command that will flush the DNS cache without restarting, but I don't remember it off-hand.

I have four computers networked together. Three of them can get to Google and one cannot. All other sites are accessible on all machines. Very strange. The machine that cannot reach Google could reach it yesterday. Seems to be only Google and nothing else. I have set the machine's home page to netscape.com which is powered by Google and it works fine!

Using Comcast broadband of course...

I had the same problem. then I ran panda antivirus web scan and it fixed it. I can only assume some sort of virus was blocking google. I don't know why but I could view goole from other machinces but not at home and all other sites came up although sometimes slowly

drdaze, this could be it - but maybe not.

The Symantec decription is "Trojan.Qhosts is a Trojan Horse that will modify the TCP/IP settings to point to a different DNS server." - which is different than modifying the HOSTS file. I think there is more than one bug spreading right now, and this is one of them.

It's probably best to search your computer for "hosts" files. Even if you know where your hosts file is, it's still a good idea to search, because they may be more than one hosts file - a few people have reported finding a malicious hosts file in c:\winnt\help\. If they are all clean, it might be this QHosts bug.

The one thing I still don't understand is why a disproportionate number of Comcast users are affected...

A small correction to my previous message. The QHosts trojan does modify the hosts file, in addition to the DNS redirection.

Had problems accessing all search engines, but on home PC only. Cleared the HOSTS file of all references to these search engines and now can access fine. Sites were all mapping to 207.44.194.56. Yes I am a Comcast subscriber

That Depends,
Step 1 :
Windows 2000/XP : Start->Settings->Network and Dialup Connections
Click on your internet connection, click properties. Follow step 2
Windows 9X Dialup : My Computer, Dialup Networking, Right Click on your connection, Properties. Follow step 2
Windows 9X Cable/LAN : Start->Settings->Control Panel->Network. Follow step 2

Step 2:
Click on TCP/IP, click Properties. The DNS settings are the lower two boxes. I have a DHCP server, so mine is set to "Obtain DNS Settings Automatically". If you have dialup or a dynamic IP address, this should be the case. Otherwise, call you ISP or check their website for the correct numbers.

I was having this same problem with not reaching google. The setup at this location is two machines behind a router which is attached to Internet via cable modem. The machine that wasn't hitting Google was Win XP. The other machine, Win 98, had no problems. When pinging Google, 98 was getting an address of 216.239.41.99 while XP was getting 207.44.220.30.

Well, upon further examination of the affected machine, I found a HOSTS file in the c:\windows\help\ folder that had been modified only a few days earlier, 1 OCT 03. Here are the contents of the HOSTS file:

Yeah, it was pretty obvious that that was the problem. I just deleted the whole file and now everything is working just fine. I haven't figured out how that file got there yet. If I do figure that out, I will definitely post here...

My problem was caused by the Qhosts-1 trojan. There was another problem with DNS server settings being changed on the machine last week that was fixed before today. Both of those problems were related to the same trojan...sometimes it just takes a little while to piece things together. Anyway, here is a nice link for removal instructions if you are a McAfee user...

I would like to thank everyone who posted comments on this subject. I have been having the same problem with internet explorer. I had scanned my system for the qhosts previous to finding these postings and was unsuccessful to fixing the problem. I am a Comcast customer and after reading these comments about the HOSTS file in the c:\windows\help\ folder I found the file removed it and restarted my computer and now internet explorer works again. I am so thankful for your posts. I had thought I exhausted all other options and was advised my Microsoft to contact my computer manufacturer who told me to reinstall everything to resolve the issue. Your posts saved my from having to do that. Thank You!!!!

I edited the lmhosts file (which certainly was tampered with!) and www.google.com was reachable for a few hours. However, now I can't reach it again. What's more -- before tracert www.google.com gave me a phony address, but now it tells me that the name is unresolved!!!

Any ideas!?!?!??!!??!!??!?!?!!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Jay, it sounds like to have been infected, and the program keeps resetting your hosts file(s). It could be Qhosts or another program. Best to run AdAware/Spybot and a virus scanner to find it...

Jay, you need to make sure you are set to receive DNS server information automatically. The Qhosts trojan changes your settings to point to some DNS servers with incorrect information. Those servers were shut down fairly quickly, so now instead of resolving to incorrect ip addresses, you will be getting unresolved...

Thanks everyone...very helpful stuff. Was using a Windows 2000 box when this occurred. Quickest solution in one message... go to that C:\Windows\Help or C:\Winnt\Help folder and delete the 'host' file. Then open up a command prompt and enter 'ipconfig /flushdns' .

Just had the same problem. I'll give you a five second fix. You and I caught a trojan infection.Don't bother doing all the elaborate fixes (such as searching for hosts files). Initially I merely started using Google's Canadian site but I finally found the fix to get to the U.S site. In the address bar instead of typing google.com just type http://216.239.41.99/ I have Active Words so I merely type g. I told Active Words that when I type g and the F6 button it takes me to the http://216.239.41.99/ site. Also if you have a logitech wireless mouse with that center wheel that can be programed to take you to the correct site.

That's not a very good solution for a couple reasons. First, you aren't eliminating any of the damage done by the trojan. This thing will have buggered up your dns server info such that you will have difficulty in looking up other websites properly. Second, manually typing in the ip address for google is just fine until they, for any number of reasons, decide to change their ip address.

Not only isn't it a good solution, it isn't a solution at all...just a work around. It is definitely worth your time to fix the problem right in the first place. And by all means, install and regularly update some virus scanning software.

Just my 2 cents...

I have scanned and scanned again with McAfee and Norton. They each told me they removed the Qhost virus, but as soon as I close the virus removed window it pops back up again. I've manually removed the registry entries suggested by both McAffee and Symantec. I've tried to patch Internet Explorer as Microsoft suggested but I keep getting a "You must have Explorer 6 SP 1" installed. In Internet Explorer it says IE 6 SP 1 is already installed, and there are no futher updates availible. The host file is empty and it's been deleted a bout a billion times. I can search google with no problems, but for some reason I'm still getting a ton of popups after Ad-aware 6.0, Norton 2004, and McAffee 2004 all claim the computer is clean.

The computer I'm trying to clean is running Windows ME. How do I get rid of this Qhosts crap?

Hello,
I have seemingly tried everything yet I still cannot access the google site. I cleared my Hosts file in my Windows Help directory and I'v flushed my ipconfig also. I have ran the qhosts removal tool only to find it has not detected the virus, although i know it is there. I've ran spybot and manually removed and edited system registry values from directions given to manually remove the virus (http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/trojan.qhosts.html).
I used to type in my IP adress in the url box and google would come up but since 2 days ago that wont' even work anymore.
Does anybody have ANY suggestions?

Thanks for your help. ( I have XP )

Thank you!!!! After 3 1/2 hours of trouble shooting and 6 months of not being able to use Google or Yahoo - your posts regarding the HOSTS file WORKED!!!! Didn't have HOST in the Windows/Help - so did a search for HOSTS file and delete the one that wasn't a sample!!!

I had a problem getting google.com, and was always re-directed, this was the result of a browser hijack, and I found two solutions:

1. install a different browser, like K-meleon, available from kmeleon.sourceforge.net this seems to immune to such hijacks, its smaller, faster and doesn't clutter your computer so much garbage, it also works great on older computers.

2. delete the hijacks. Some of the above comments look like the result of hijacks, and for this, I would recommend using HijackThis, but use caution!

Hope this helps

Seeing all these problems about getting to Google was much the same problem as I've just encountered. The problem was not limited to Google, I couldn’t get to any site, even using the IP address. Both a local support bod and also my ISP walked me through DNS issues.

Fortunately I had a Ghosted version of my boot disk. I then retraced my steps as to what I had done lately. The major thing I'd done was deinstall Panda. On doing this on the Ghosted disk I replicated the problem, and then reversed it by reinstalling Panda. Again I deinstalled Panda but this time using the Control panel Install/Deinstall Program option rather than Panda's own deinstall.

This latter deinstall seems to have worked fine. Why apparently Panda deinstall caused a problem in the first place, I’m mystified.

HI, I am having this problem. I cannot get to Google or get into Hotmail. Everything else works fine!!!I tried to find the hosts files and nothing. Virus checks with Sys Restore on/off. Anything would be appreciated.

If you're using DNS, make sure your DNS server doesn't have Internet Security set up too high. If your DNS server cannot load GOOGLE it will not resolve the name for the clients it is serving.

I can't access Google right now on my laptop (Vista Ultimate, just started about an hour ago). Gmail, maps.google.com, all yes. Google and iGoogle no. But on the desktop (Win98SE) I can access it just fine. I feel so helpless. Heh.
