That's one of the signs that Conficker has been activated. Can you get to security sites like Symantec, etc., or are they blocked too?

I was experiencing the same issue couldn't connect to Microsoft with two different computers. Now they both connect. Microsoft may have been down for a while or at least parts of it...

Inability to connect with Microsoft is absolutely a sign that the system is infected withe Conficker. Microsoft has a bout a bazillion redundant servers.... do you really think they were down? :thumbsup: More likely that your IP was hiccuping. In the interest fo safety, there are tools that will check your system for the worm. Wouldn't hurt to check, would it.

They've probably been unusually busy today with everybody fretting about the virus, seeing if they can still connect to update and security sites. Kinda dumb really, because it'll take weeks of polling by the virus to hook up with all the worm infected machines.

Did a complete check for Conficker Virus and no such animal. I tried connecting to Microsoft websites on two different systems and got the same result.
