    Microsoft Knowledge Base

    For about a week, I've been having tremendous trouble getting through to the MS KB. I can watch the bar go back & forth for 5-6 minutes or just come back with a message that it can't find the server. Actually, this happens with Netscape & Opera, also. I have a DSL connection.

    Has anyone been having a problem connecting lately or is it just me?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've taken to use the meta-search feature, which turns up hits in Technet and MSDN as well as KB. It doesn't have as many irritating drop down menus, either.

    [img]/w3timages/icons/blush.gif[/img][img]/w3timages/icons/blush.gif[/img][img]/w3timages/icons/blush.gif[/img]Thanks to everyone who responded. My conscience is bothering me. My "problem" seems to be solved. I should have noticed that all my browsers were working more slowly.

    However, my monthly thorough scandisk revealed errors that needed fixing & my monthly defrag made a HUGE difference.

    Gee, it's obvious I never follow my own advice.[img]/w3timages/icons/blush.gif[/img][img]/w3timages/icons/blush.gif[/img][img]/w3timages/icons/blush.gif[/img]
