When I tried to use the Google search engine yesterday and today, I kept getting the error message "This address isn't valid." Anyone else having trouble?

I haven't had any trouble. Are you talking about google.com, btw?

This is a DNS problem with your Internet Service Provider.

I hate to say that, but Google is still there!

Kingdom is correct. Reboot your machine and router/modem. If that doesn't correct it then call your ISP.

@Adam5000 You can also try to clean the DNS caching.

Click on the Start button. Enter "cmd" into the "Run" box and hit the "Enter" key.

As you see the cmd.exe click on it as Administrator by right click.

Type exactly as you see it "ipconfig /flushdns" into the window that you see and and hit the "Enter" key and reboot your computer.

If that doesn't help you, then call your ISP.
