Default is Nvidia site down?

Unable to download any drivers from site. After clicking on license
agreement it times out with "unable to connect to server" error...am I
missing something? Not running a firewall, even shut off Norton..TIA

Doing same here but just taking it's time..... I'd say the server is just
not letting people on right now or possibly the referrer that checks for the
agreement thingy being accepted might be not working right now as the site
is pingable still so it 'can' be reached it seems....

I appreciate it. Must be on my end. After clicking on the "Accept" all I get
is a screen with some ads for
some Nzone games and then it times out.....even had a friend in China try it
and he could get thru. Anybody got any ideas???? Win2kPro/ cable modem/ IE6
yadayadayada...... Thanx again..

Most of this problem is relate to Pop-Up blocker either from nVidia or from
Anti-Virus and or from Firewall etc....

Thanx everyone for helping. It seems my router was set to "Block anonymous
internet requests". Never has been changed and this is the 1st problem I've
had in 2 yrs..weird... was able to download the file after changing the
setting to allow..

that would make sense actually! could possibly be a WinXP SP2 issue due
to the built in popup blocker?
