Good morning everyone,

When attempting to go to the MBAM Forum this morning, I get the message, "IE cannot display the webpage."

Does anyone know if MBAM is having problems with its site?

Thanks for any info!

You can always check whether a site is down or not by using DownForEveryoneOrJustMe.com (short version: isup.me):
http://www.isup.me/http://forums.malwarebytes.org/

If they were having issues earlier today, the problem must have been resolved, as it is working fine for me.

Are you still having problems accessing their site, and/or have you tried using another browser?

Thanks very much for the reply, keyboardninja!

I tried that link you provided and it said the problem is with me. I still cannot access the MBAM Forum site using either IE8 or Firefox (these are the only 2 browsers I have). I've not had this problem prior to this morning. I also have no problem accessing any other website, including MBAM's product site. Have done full scans with Avast, MBAM, & SAS - - no malware is present.

Regards,

Have you tried clearing your browser's cache?

Greetings, keyboardninja,

I cleared the cache...problem persists (used CCleaner & then TFC). I also ran a tracert and ping from the command prompt (i.e. tracert forums.malwarebytes.org and ping forums.malwarebytes.org). BOTH returned transmit error: code 31, and indicated a 100% data loss.

Thanks again!

Interesting...not sure what's up with that.

I did find this info regarding error 31:

Hi keyboardNinja,

I thought I had replied to your last post here, but evidently I didn't.

I did finally resolve the problem. It seems I had placed a particular IP address in my firewall's blocklist which was interfering with accessing the MBAM Forums site. Once I removed it, I was able to get on the website.

Thanks again for all your help with this one!

That would explain it. Glad you figured it out. :)
