Safari version - 6.0.5

 

Started several days ago, Safari and Chrome will not load any web pages giving an error message "Cannot find Server". When I shut down and boot Mac in Safe Mode, Safari will then load the we pages.

 

Can anyone help on the possible cause and resolution?

 

Note: Apologies for the community selection, it doesn't have many options other than iPod Touch, iPad and iPhone.

 

Many thanks, in advance.

    Did some further investigation on the communities website, another discussion/question provided possible cause cause, followed discussion and resolved my own issue. Link below to reference discussion is provided below:

    I had Peerguaurdian installed, I removed an entry related to Peerguardian from LaunchDaemons and/or Startup Items and/or PreferencePanes under Library, instructions below:

     

    - Finder > Devices > (Username) > Hard Drive > Library folder

    - Go to each of the folders "LaunchDaemons", "StartupItems", and "PreferencePanes", expand each folder using arrow to the left of folders

    - look for unusual application titles (in my case it was *peerguardian*)

    - dual finger click on line item, menu will appear.

    - select "Move to Trash"

    - reboot Mac

     

    Hope this helps.
