That won't work, because msn.com and x.y.microsoft.com will still be
The only solutions are to either:
1) Find all the address space registered to MS and block it at your FW.
2) Find all the TLDs owned by MS, and use a local DNS cache to forge the
to loopback addresses.
3) Find of the BPG AS numbers for MS, and use you local friendly BGP4 router
to blackhole those ASes (in some way).
None of those solutions is very practical - except possibly #2 - you can bet
that they'll mainely use microsoft.com, msn.com or maybe windows.com.
So, they already have 3 aces.

If you really want to zip m$ out of your world you could add your loopback
address for micro$oft.com to your hosts file, that should do the trick.

hmm yep i have also noticed some IE's connecting to some host at microsoft
(207.x.x.x) before displaying the "This website could not be bla bla"
kinda annoying... they also override your normal 404,500,403,402 pages so
users cannot see the <ADDRESS> displaying the vhosts webmaster address...
furthermore this piece of crap (IE) lacks functions to show source of some
parts of the code, it lacks functions to show page info (like netscape has
showing all links and scripts) so you cannot even see what it is doing..
it has bugs in the GIF library causing our logo to shake on some/most
versions (www.cb3rob.net, check the logo, its shaking ;), m$ does not
react to bugreports, they only pay $5.- damage if your entire company
breaks down if their "products" fail to operate normally
why the hell people use it anyway... well... their problem ;)
anyway.... pay for it and then demand your money back for manufacturer
faults when you "upgrade" to the next version (That way they dont make
money haha) hmmm time for a TV commercial campaign or something ;)
promoting demanding money back for such malicious "products" *grin*
(as there are still bugs still there from dos 4.0 there are plenty of
grounds for demanding money back anyway ;)
my dog can code better than those idiots at m$...
