    To start with - im a geek. im not a dumb kid on here just learning for the first time....im not super elite, but I know what I am doing....so this is not user error.

    OK, so two nights ago my gf kinda crashed my computer. It went into loops rebooting over and over again - anyway, long story short, I reformatted. ICK!

    SO.... i put my IBP back on, the same one I have always used, and the one found on this forum. No problems with install...

    the program will not pull any data from google what so ever. I cant even run an optimization using google as my base. I can use the other engines with no problem, but google wont give me anything.

    I have double, triple, quadruple checked my setting, I have it set for the first 5 pages of search results. I have even tried setting it to the top 30, 40, 50 results. I even did a serps check on a page a rank #1 for - and it did not find my listing....

    soooo...IBP is NOT communicating with google...why not?

    No, I am not banned from google, I can use it freely and my other programs have no problem getting me the data I want....its just IBP -


    anyone have any suggestions or run into this before - I wont lie - I need my IBP....its a great tool....and I would pay for it if it would work correctly....

    I can think of a few reasons, windows firewall, other firewall, check IE settings, IBP uses IE settings to connect to internet, specifically if its set to proxy and you dont use a proxy.
    if you can sucessfully connect to the internetz with IE then also try and do a winsock reset

    click the the "start" button. Click "run." Type the word "cmd" in the open box. when the DOS screen comes up, type "netsh winsock reset." Press "enter." Type "exit" to close the DOS window and go back to Windows.
    Restart the computer.check to see if the problem is resolved. If it isn't, open the windows rregistry. Click "start" and type "run." Type "regedit" in the open box.


    Select "File" from the menu. Click "Export." choose a location to export the registry to. Name the exported file "backup.reg." or whatever youwant.



    choose the key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE." click the plus sign to expand the key. click the key "System" and expand it. goto "currentcontrolsetserviceswinsock." Right-click the "winsock" key and select "delete." Click "yes" to confirm the deletion.


    go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINEsystemcurrentcontrolsetserviceswinsock2." do the same thing as above "delete it"
    restart the computer.


    click "My Network Places" on the desktop or in control panel right-click the network connection icon. Click "properties." click "install," "protocol" and "add." Click "Have Disk" and type in "c:windowsinf." click "OK."


    choose "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" from the list of available protocols. If it does not appear, click "start" and choose "search." Check the options to search system folders, hidden files and folders, and subfolders. Search for the file "nettcpip.inf." Click "install." Restart the computer.

    if that doesnt do it, im out of ideas.

    hope this helps and good luck.

    first, i really appreciate you helping me out with that. I would have never thought of that! YOU ROCK!

    second, it didnt work. i have a feeling, that if i upgrade my IE that it will solve the problem...I despise IE, so I dont update it to the newest one, I just ignore it and use my other browsers....so I am going to try that - I will let you know how that turns out.

    OK, so it isnt IE. I tested EVERY other search engine and they all work fine except google.

    any ideas?

    check your host file:
    The hosts file is a computer file used to store information on where to find a node on a computer network. This file maps hostnames to IP addresses. The hosts file is used as a supplement to (or instead of) the domain name system on networks of varying sizes. Unlike DNS, the hosts file is under the control of the local computer's administrator.


    Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista: %SystemRoot%system32driversetc is the default location, which may be changed.

    if its not there the check registery location for the path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesTcpipParametersDataBasePath.


    look to see if it sets the call ip to localhost 127.0.0.1 or something other than your internal or external ip. if its set to internal/external or localhost then remove that line.


    hope this helps.
