Can't access Google by hostname

keith_kinty
Hi,

There's a computer I manage running XP SP3 that will not access Google using www.google.com, but will access it by its IP address. I've already recreated the Hosts file, did a DNS flush, added http/https google to trusted sites, deleted all temp files, reset IE, deleted Search Conduit, turned off system restore, installed and ran malwarebytes, fixed the issues and rebooted but it's still not working. I don't have any proxies and this is the only pc affected. I tried using other browsers but no luck there either. They're using Bing right now to get by but they hate it. Any help would be appreciated.

    Command Prompt, ipconfig /all - tell us if you have a DNS server. I would try to ping the name too and see if the it's being resolve to an IP address in the first place.
