    Can't access Google (Home Premium )

    I have not been able to use my Google DESKBAR (**not toolbar**) or even dial up Google with any of the popular web browsers. I get the standard TimeOut error message*. Oddly enough, I just tried using CTRL-I for Google Images, from my Deskbar, and it called up a page of results instantly!

    I use PC Tools Firewall Plus, and have checked my blocked sites (I'm not an expert though), and don't see any Google sites blocked. If I turn the Firewall off, the Google problem persists. Since this problem is in Opera, Firefox, MSIE, Flock, and my Deskbar (which I've uninstalled & reinstalled a few times), I really am confounded.

    Message from my browsers (Firefox in this case)

    * Network Timeout

    The server at www.google.com is taking too long to respond.

    The requested site did not respond to a connection request and the browser has stopped waiting for a reply.

    * Could the server be experiencing high demand or a temporary outage? Try again later.
    * Are you unable to browse other sites? Check the computer's network connection.
    * Is your computer or network protected by a firewall or proxy? Incorrect settings can interfere with Web browsing.
    * Still having trouble? Consult your network administrator or Internet provider for assistance.
