Specs: Microsoft Windows Vista Business, 1.667 GHz / 2037 MB
Hi,
I just got my laptop reformatted and Vista installed again.
I can access all websites like google and this one but i cannot connect to any
1. Microsoft Website or MSN website or log into the MSN messenger.
2. When i log into HSBC hongkong page, it does not log in.
My windows update is working fine and has been able to download and install updates.

I would be greatful for any help. This is the second computer i am facing this problem with. I also have another laptop which has excatly the same problem after upgrading to Vista.

The date and time zone is correct and have changed the region from US to Hong Kong.

Regards
Khawar

use nslookup first. Use ip address it returns in address line of browser.

If fails (and it is really the correct IP address) then virus.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

If returns dns server then you need to tell your isp to fix their dns.
