This might help.
Free VPN for iPhone, Android, Mac and Windows for secure and private browsing, accessing blocked sites and unblocking Facebook and Youtube - Hotspot Shield
Thanks for the site, what do you think about it?

Windows 7 Pro. 64/SP-1
 
 

I have never used it so I really don't know if it works. If it did everything that it says it will do that would be great. I don't think it will help accessing web sites a country is blocking. A country that blocks web sites will do it through threats to the ISP and the ISP will block those sites or else. Once your ISP blocks those sites I don't know of a way to get around that. I doubt this program will get around country blocked web sites. Some Guru might know how to get around blocked web sites but I don't and don't have to know in the U.S.A.

I suppose, you could always use a proxy server, which I used to use when I was at school but then eventually the website providing the proxy server got blocked by my school's server staff. My college has even greater security restrictions, you can't even change your homepage.

I think contacting the ISP will be the easiest option, just need to find out why the webpage has been blocked, especially when it is Google and not anything illegal at all.

Hotspot Shield hides IP addresses. in my country youtube has been blocked due to some reasons. so i wanted to use youtube. someone suggested me to install the software. when i installed it blocked google. it blocks google when Hotspot Shield is disconnected
