  1. I can't use google at all. If a website uses google for a search engine, I can't navigate the site. My computer will just sit with a blank screen and never displays anything involving google. Is there some sort of fix for this? HELP ME!!!

    Try stopping any toolbars you are running - there is a possible conflict with MS updates especially with the Yahoo toolbar. Also reset all your security settings to default.

    on your IE browser click tools>internet options>lan settings. and tick box, auto detect settings. see if that works for you.
    you can also try shutting down your firewall for a few seconds then try opening google as it could be doing the blocking.

    you could also run scan for bugs n stuff. if you do go toTHIS LOCATION and follow instructions

    try another browser (like Firefox) to see if it's a browser issue vs. a system networking issue.
