Macbook Pro with Maverick. Sophos antivirus. Firewall on
I use Safari as my primary web browser. I can access certain sites with Safari such as Facebook and Twitter. I cannot access other sites. I am in the Netherlands at the moment and I noticed that I seem to be directed to google.nl. Websites with .nl do not work. Anytime I get redirected to google.nl nothing works. What happens is that the website doesn't load. It is only a blank white page. I try to access the same sites with my IPhone and they also don't work. I have run a Sophos scan on my Mac and nothing came up. I also have the firewall up. I think this may be a problem with the internet in the Netherlands, but I don't know for certain and I want to make sure I don't have a weird virus or something.
For example in trying to troubleshoot this problem many people have suggested thesafemac.com, but I can't get the website to work. In this case it doesn't redirect, it just won't open.
