Don't know if this is the correct forum to post about Google Chrome. If not, move to where it fits.

I can no longer get to Google Chrome, my home page, on THIS computer. The Google Chrome page comes up as http://www.google.com/ap_index. It comes up on my wife's computer at www.google.com but on our other computer it comes up as http://www.google.com with an error message - 404. That’s an error.

The requested URL /ap_index was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

All computers run Win 7.

Tried uninstalling Google Chrome and re-installing. When the "new" google page is loaded, it still comes up as http://www.google.com/ap_index

You should try flushing your dns. Open up a command prompt and type "ipconfig /flushdns" without the quotations.

If that doesn't work we can try checking your hosts file.

Also do a Virus scan - Due to some viruses been able to redirect your sites to other sites we need to remove that possibility.

I agree with the doctor. If flushing your DNS does not help and host file is still correct, boot your pc into safe mode and run malware bytes or combofix. Both are great for removing malware and rootkits.

Thanks. Using Malwarebytes apparently did the trick. I used the program in and out of safe mode yesterday but it didn't seem to work. Today the Google home page comes up as expected.
