Why cannot open microsoft website Tags: Firewalls MSN Microsoft Networking Last response: May 30, 2010 1:11 AM in Networking Share lim teck shern May 29, 2010 12:13:28 PM Hello, Hello All I cannot open any microsoft owned pages, such as www.msn.dk, www.msn.com, www.microsoft.com, www.windowsupdate.com, www.windows.com or any other - on my other pc. I've had this problem for a few weeks and it persists even in firefox. I just formatted my c: and reinstalled winxp, and still the problem persists. This laptop from which i am posting now is behind the same router as the other pc. I really need some help, please? PS: any other websites work fine.
