    The sites are fine for me. Assuming that you can access other parts of the Internet properly, it's possible that they were incorrectly added to the hosts file (which would make the system fail to properly translate the names to IP addresses).

    If that also doesn't work for you, another possibility is that that the site is banned for you by firewall/router at workplace/something else

    Is that a bad thing? :tongue2:


    If ever a Microsoft site doesn't work, your computer's the problem, not Microsoft. They're obsessed with having 100% uptime. As far as I can tell, all those sites worked. If you're using Internet Explorer, try this: Click Tools > Reset Web Settings. (Don't reset your homepage). If that doesn't work, I don't know what else could be wrong. :eek:
