All Google related websites blocked by Update

Recommended Posts

I updated Malwarebytes and was immediately Blocked from accessing any Google websites.  I can't check Gmail or do Google Searches..... If I do, I get the error message:  "www.google.com's server DNS address could not be found".  Everything else works perfectly normal.... just Google is being blocked somehow after the most recent update.  If I turn Malwarebytes OFF, I can use Gmail and Google Searches as I normally do.  There is some sort of conflict between the Update and Google.  I tried the 2 suggestions the Moderator made in a previous thread, and neither worked.... which was an Install on top of what I have, and then a Clean install.... no luck.  So per Moderator request, attached are the Log Files.  Thanks!

This is due to a compatibility issue with MB3 and K9 Blue Coat. The best solution is to go to your K9 config page and turn off the options for stripping SSL from your Google searches and this should fix it. You may need to turn off safe-search as well. The other option is to disable Web Protection in Malwarebytes, but the changes in K9 will make your browsing experiencing more secure as SSL is something you should be using on Google searches.

Thanks!  That did the trick!  Just in case anybody else runs into the same problem, I went into K9 > Setup > Safe Search ...... then unchecked the box titled "Redirect Google SSL".  I left the Safe Search On..... just wanted to try your first suggestion first, and that did the trick!  Thank You.  

I'll probably just uninstall K9 anyway.  I listen to "Computer Talk with Tab" Podcast on a regular basis.  They always recommend Malwarebytes on every program.  They used to recommend K9, but just recently said it is causing many issues.... so they now recommend uninstalling K9 and just use Opendns.
