    Unable to Load Microsoft Safety Scanner Web Page


    For the past few days I've been unable to load Microsoft Safety Scanner web page.
    At first it was only Internet Explorer and edge with the issue.
    Now Chrome and Firefox are unable to load the page.

    Anyone else having this issue??

    Microsoft Safety Scanner - Free Virus Scan with the Microsoft Safety Scanner


    I've run several scans with a couple other programs and they found nothing.
    It loaded fine today using firefox.

    Apparently I'm the only one having this issue?

    I just tried your link in FF, Edge, IE, Chrome, Opera & Maxthon and it would not load - kept refreshing/blocking. So I checked it here, and it says it's down:

    I asked about this on Microsoft Community and I was told to clean History. (Which I had already did.)
    But after that no one replied telling me that it was down.

    So I guess I wasted yours and my time.

    Thanks much,
    James
