I having a computer with Windows XP SP2 set up. My computer connect to the internet via a ADSL modem (share with another 2 computers). The problem is that if I  type 72.14.235.104 into IE address bar, then it can open google site, but if I type google.com, then IE try to open a url at IP of 1.0.0.0 (!!!!) I don't know what is my problem. I try to use another computer and everything is OK. I don't want to re-set up Windows XP (:)). Would you please show me how to fix it? Thanks so much.

2 possibilities:
-1 make sure under the TCP/IP properties of your network adapter that the DNS servers listed are proper and current. If in doubt try another such as 4.2.2.2 or 4.2.2.3
-make sure you Hosts file has not been corrupted by a virus or spyware. It is located in:
 c:\Windows (or WINNT)\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
You can open it with notepad. Unless you have intentionally added entries it should only contain a series of lines starting with # which are comments and one line "127.0.0.1   localhost". Eliminate any others especially if they are "1.0.0.0    somedomain.abc". When saving, save without a file extension and enclose i quotes to be sure, such as  "hosts"
