BBC iPlayer down?

I have been unable to get any response out of the BBC iPlayer for the last hour or more.  Just selecting a program gives you the continuously turning circle that indicates a stall.  Is it working for anybody else?

Working fine here, static IP address and Google DNS set at router.

I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.
Now you're stuck with me because my new ISP doesn't run a forum Cheesy

Re: BBC iPlayer down?

When the problem began I thought it applied to multiple devices but now it seems to be confined to Windows 7 on my main PC.  It applies to both Google Chrome and Internet Explorer but not to Windows 10 running on the same PC (as a dual-boot option).  The main difference between 7 & 10 is that 7 uses Kaspersky Internet Security and 10 does not.  So, although it could be something else, the finger of suspicion is pointed at Kaspersky.

Fix

Uninstalling and then re-installing Kaspersky Internet Security fixed the problem.  Thanks to all who commented and made me aware it was my problem and not a BBC one.
