Try another browser to compare with: edge.

Can you try with https://www.google.ie/

Does it work in other browsers?
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Try resetting IE.  Open IE, Tools, Internet Options, Advanced and click on Reset.  Try first resetting the top selections, close out, restart and test.  

You may also wish to run TCP/IP Reset.

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator
Then: netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
Then: ipconfig /flushdns
Then: restart the computer

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

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)
Tom CieslikIT EngineerCommented:
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...
