    Default Problems accessing microsoft.com ?

    hi !

    im wondering if anybody else has noticed any problems with Microsoft Corporation or other microsoft-sites the last days ?

    i tried to access it about 10.30 PM (forumtime) 13 april, but got an errormessage: "server timeout", several times.

    since then i have tried different countries: Sweden, Germany, India, all with the same result.

    but when i tried technet.microsoft.com everything was normal,

    then from technet i tried several of the popdown-links at the upper right under "microsoft.com":

    some worked: Office, MSN
    others didnt: Windows, Games, Business, Security, Download center

    of course i have scanned my PC, i just finished a COMPLETE scan of all my HDs, and ESET NOD32 says its clean.

    i use Firefox, but decided to try with Opera (10), just to see what would happen, then to my surprise everything was normal.
    i tried some links and then tried Firefox again, it also worked !

    a bit later i got the same problems with Opera...

    im also having problems with gmail and google.



    are there any new "funny" viruses ?

    any ideas anyone ?

    Yes, but since you can access other Microsoft sites, I don't think that is your problem. However, just to be sure, try this "eye chart" for starters: Conficker Eye Chart

    Not unusual around Patch Tuesday due to the number of people attempting to access the site.

    @Corrine, would it be OK with you if I posted the "Conflicker Eye Chart" link on the Howtogeek forum. I have a lot of friends there and would like them to have this information. I will also post a link to your blog if that is OK with you too.

    No Problem. Thanks for the response. I will proceed as you said in the future. I prefer to ask because I hate to step on someone's toes.
