I've spent several hours trying to ascertain why all of a sudden I can't access any web sites of Fox News and have narrowed the issue to Trend Micro. It is also occurring on other computers that I have Trend Micro security on.

  • This is making me angry. Ver angry. Absolutely no reason what so ever to block any of these sites.

-I'm not a Trend Micro representative-

I have only 2 PC's in front of me now:
Trend Micro PC opens Fox News website for a while, then page is blank.
Notebook with not antivirus opens Fox News normally.

Yes, that sounds like what I've been experiencing. I tried approving the site manually through Trend Micro with the helpful Trend Micro tech via the phone although I still have the problem.
THANK YOU for your comment.

Hi tonypumilia

Just tested here, on my win 10 pro and on my wife's laptop win 7 Ultimate both with TM Max. No problems with Fox News here.
Amsterdam Netherlands.

Kind regards,
Tom

Thanks for your reply Tom. I've found this issue is being experienced by numerous people on the internet although I haven't been able to ascertain if any of them have Trend Micro as well. It's entirely possible that it isn't an issue with Trend Micro.

As of right now, it's FINALLY back to normal! No more issues...so far.  No one has claimed responsibility for the fix, although I'm sure it'll get blamed on the Russians for doing it.  ;)
