      Can anyone access rapidshare.com at the moment?

      I was happily doing some admin on files I have stored on rapidshare.com and suddenly I lost the ability to upload and download files.

      I couldn't even get on rapidshare.

      I tried the 'is it down for me' web site and it states that rapidshare.com is working normally.

      So is it only me?

      I don't have an account or anything, but I can get to the home page without any problems.

      Very strange. I can't even get to the front page.

      I wonder what is going on here?

      Time to run some scans I think, although I am quite well protected from nasties infiltrating my computer, but you never know.

      Nothing nasty found, but it looks like my java has vanished.

      I can't reinstall at the moment as it refuses to because of an unknown error.

      Very strange.

      Shall have to fix it tomorrow.

      Run Malwarebytes for a start if you haven't done so. Many are recommending uninstallling Java as it is open to attack. That may be your problem.
      Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - CNET Download.com

      I have run malwarebytes and nothing was found.

      I did manage to get on the site briefly before going to bed last night, but its the same again today.

      Running scans again as I am struggling to find teh reason.
