    Google.co.uk not working on all computers but .com is

    Ok I have a strange issue, when staff enter google.com they are redirected to .co.uk (thats normal I know) but for some reason .co.uk displays at not accessible on several machines in school but not all.

    I have since added a search box on our intranet which lets staff search .com and it works fine on there. Ive no idea what is causing this issue and there are no filters against it.

    Its only on a staff account which dont have access to command prompt, log on as a tech or pupil and it will work fine.

    Sorted it, the previous tech put a GPO on blocking google.co.uk proxy for some reason, and only on staff too.

    On a side note, this thread made me smile. So often we hear "Google isn't working" and this time it seems like it's true!

    I know what you mean there! Had Hotmail isnt working and youtube isnt working from staff today....the youtube case was a single video url was blocked because it was caught by our word filter on the comments (these were both staff btw, pupils cannot access youtube)
