It is a vague issue that can be caused by different factors, so solutions differ depending on a specific situation.

The issue often is occurring when users try to get to Google websites and services on Internet Explorer or Google Chrome web browser.[2] There are a few variations of the issue because sometimes it blocks access to any websites, and other instances are related to particular sites.
