If I am logged out of google, all my searches no matter what I search for are coming back as SSL error. If I log out of Google then reopen the page, I get sent to google.fr, google.it etc and it refuses to let me open google.com (google.ca apparently does not exist).
I am not overly technically savy, but the web works fine if I don't use google, is this googles way of forcing you to log in so they can see what you do and don't do. Or is there some deeper technical/hardware issue on my end that is preventing only google search from working when signed out (signed in it works).
I use three browsers and only is signed into Google with Chrome, but my main search engine is Google search and I don't have that problem so I don't know how to help you there. I used Firefox when signed into my other HP account and uses Google search there, even today.
Yeah it is weird. I switched to a different operating system, Ubuntu using Chrome and not Windows using Chrome and I do not have the problem any more. But if I switch back to Windows system using any web browser, I get the weirdness. So Ubuntu it is .. lol. Thanks
I don't know if it is OS specific. I am running chrome under xubuntu (xfce on ubuntu) and it is redirecting me to microsoft.com for every query made in browser. So there is definitely something fishy going on there with these search engines.

I thought that the order of keywords in a Title did not matter and likewise that the order of keywords entered for a Google Search did not matter. However when you do a search for - Green Tea Health Benefits (A) - and...
