Hi and welcome to FpcH

The pc at my work
Not trying to avoid your question - but if there is an IT dept. at work this would be best addressed by them.

Is this an option?

Just to add to Kens reply....
Get the IT dept to check the Hosts file, maybe Microsoft is being blocked from there, i've seen that happen before.
