I have heard that people who run Windows that is infected with Conficker
will not be able to access virus remediation sites like microsoft,
symantec, etc.

You should scan your system with a recent virus/malware scanner, you may have to download
it in Linux.

BTW, it's an easy check to see if you can get through from a linux box, then you 
know it is your Windows install being infected.
