ive had this problem for about 6 months but i just blew it off cause there was ways of getting around it. one night i was looking for a key gen for a program my dad was trying to get to work. knowing the risks i tried takeing all the percations(sp). when it looked as tho i found one i grabed a blank cd and downloaded this key gen to the cd instead of the harddrive. after this was done i shut all the programs down and put the cd in the drive. it came up saying what was on there so i double clicked it and BAM!!! the screen went black then came back on and his antivirus was saying viruses were trying to get in threw some back doors and it didnt allow them access. so i took the cd out and destroyed the cd. later that night i loaded up a internet explorer and a site came up as my homepage that wasnt supose to be there so i went into the internet options and changed it. the next day i tried useing google to do a search and it came up as cannot find server. ever since then i wasnt able to use anything from google. just today i needed to make a portfolio in one of my classes so i downloaded picassa(sp) as that is the program we are required to use. after it downloaded all my pictures i selected the ones i wanted and click blog and it came up but immediatly switched screens and said u need internet access to use this feature. which i didnt realize that picassa is a google program so all day today ive been trying to fix this problem with google but i cannot do it. is there anyone out there that can???
