Re: Unable to open and search from Google search on internet explorer
Your getting this issue because your HOST FILE has been hijacked and to solve this issue you just need to go through the below steps: open the search program on the start and on the search type: %systemroot% \system32\drivers\etc and after that make click on eth ok button. Now you will get the windows explorer and under that make Right-click an open space in the %WinDir%\System32\Drivers\Etc folder and after that choose the new and text document. Now type the new document name as hosts without any extension (.txt). Now Click Yes to confirm that the file name extension will not be .txt. now on the host file type the below code and after that save it on your system and after that your issue will get solved:
# Copyright (c) 1993-2006 Microsoft Corp. |
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
# 18.104.22.168 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 22.214.171.124 x.acme.com # x client host
# localhost name resolution is handle within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost
