    hello guys,
    I have a really weird problem to me
    My friend called me yesterday And told me That his Mac Suddenly Can't access any website (By saying "server not found") Except "Facebook.com" And he said that he doesn't remember that he did Any noticeable action that could've caused the problem And when he and I were discussing the matter He remembered that downloading OS X Mountain lion illegally from the Internet Could be the only reason of This problem As long as we know that Mac doesn't have viruses So downloading applications from the Internet is probably not a reason
    And he asked me if I can help But I told him that I've had my Mac for only about two months So I don't have much experience About It And I told him I will try to ask people who know Much more than me And probably can help you

    So guys please if anyone can help that would be very appreciated

    Thank you all...

    Why anone would download a illegal copy of the os amazes me, it's not expensive

    Could be a cracked and modified version of the os, it could also be a dns issue
    Maybe he should wipe it clean and start with a purchased copy of the os from apple

    Buy a full copy of OS X and then install it on a new partition, after that erase the old partition...

    As per the rules, helping those who pirated software is against the rules
    Your friend needs to purchase OSX and from there install it.
