    It would be wonderful if someone can help me out on a small dilemma.
    At this current moment I cannot open microsoft sites,eg hotmail, facebook, msn messenger. I cannot download from the microsoft site.
    The browser I am using is Mozilla and the computer is running on XP professional. I am not having issues with any other sites.
    It would be wonderful if someone can help me please.


    Regards

    MS has their site set up so that you have to use IE in order to download from their (nice, huh?)
    I don't know about hotmail (although I wouldn't be surprised) for MS uses Activex a lot on their sites, and various other browsers don't always care for it. You might check the security settings on your browser also.
    As for MSN Messenger, that doesn't make sense, but, since I don't use it, I can't help there.

    Thank you
    I have looked at my security settings and to be honest I am not sure what I am suppose to be looking at.

    Cheers

    I cannot access Hotmail either :(

    When I try to connect I get:

    Secure Connection Failed




    login.live.com uses an invalid security certificate.

    The certificate expired on 07/20/2009 04:59 PM.

    (Error code: sec_error_expired_certificate)


    * This could be a problem with the server's configuration, or it could be someone trying to impersonate the server.

    * If you have connected to this server successfully in the past, the error may be temporary, and you can try again later.


    I think we may have to wait until they update the certificate :mad::cool:


    Edit: If they keep this up, I may switch permanently to Gmail.
