You should get re-routed to address: https://www.google.ie/?gws_rd=ssl
since google is not supporting http without SSL encryption anymore
Try co use this address: https://www.google.ie/?gws_rd=ssl

If this will not work, make sure your firewall not blocking SSL connection port 443.
Also try google chrome or firefox.
If you don;t want to install other browser you can try FireFox Portable.
You don;t need to install it to use it

Hi Tom,

Did you try my suggestions especially about TCP reset

Follow up note:: Stack Reset and importantly DNS Flush can help these issues.  

Also reset your router (unplug, wait 5 minutes, plug it back in)

Is this problem exists on more than one computer on only one ?

Of on only one, try John suggestion, if in your network,, maybe you have:

1. DNS issue
2. Route on you way to google website.

If this is DNS issue,, try replace DNS settings for test only,,, set 8.8.8.8 on your IPv4 properties then ipconfig/flushdns in command prompt and check for hour or two
If you have 2 DNS server ,, try switch them over... so make secondary DNS as your primary..

then ipconfig /flushdns in command prompt

maybe it's a time out?  i see many pc's that are responding very slowly; i suppose this is caused by windows checking and scanning everything...
