Last week, we reported on a large number of PC users complaining that the Google search results were simply not showing up.
Google got to the bottom of it. Users using BullGuard, an internet security and antivirus application, are the ones having this issue. Disabling BullGuard fixes the issue.
After days of trying to figure out why so many users are having issues with loading Google results, Google's Albert said you should disable BullGuard. Guess what, it worked.
One searcher said:
Seems as though your hunch is right Albert. Bullguard seems to be the culprit.
In Bullguard I made the following changes to the settings.
under "Settings->Real Time Antivirus->Browsing" untick "Google" where it says "Show safe search results on these websites"
This made Google searches work for me again.
So if you have this issue, disable Bullguard and you should be back in business. I assume Bullguard will be working on a fix?
