    This might sound stupid, but I think I actually got a virus on my Lumia 520. It's the "Your flash player is out of date" virus. I actually fixed this same virus for my friend couple of months ago, but it was on his COMPUTER.
    This is a genuine virus, it's preventing me from accessing popular sites such as Google (and all Google services), Facebook, Yahoo and YouTube.
    The weird thing is I can't use Facebook app and Facebook's messenger app, although it has nothing to do with the browser which got infected.
    Here's some details:
    Windows 8.1, Lumia Black
    Lumia 520
    Just did a hard reset
    All other sites are running perfectly.
    Had this "virus" for a week now.
    Please Google the virus, my phone's symptoms are exactly the same as the computer version of the virus.
    Thank you all in advance

    Have you checked your internet is in working order? Any proxies set or anything?

    Funny thing, there is no flash player to update.
    I'm curious, could you oblige me a screenshot of what you're seeing?
