    I am having a very strange issue!! On some of my pc`s I can not access Windowsupdate.com or any Microsoft websites. I thought it was a virus or spyware issue so I did a clean install of windows xp pro.
    Once installed I setup up all my settings installed drivers, got onto the internet and i can go to any websites without a problem. But even with a clean install i cannot access any Microsoft websites.
    So then i thought maybe it was a problem with my firewall blocking theses websites. I called my internet provider (Time Warner) who manage my firewall, and they claim the firewall is not blocking any of these websites. Which makes sense because i have serveral pc on the same network that can access these websites. Then i called Microsoft and explained my issue and they have trying to help me for three days and still cannot resolve the issue!! If anyone has come across this issue please let me know what you did to resolve this isssue.

    Thank you!!!
