Fiddler Troubles

This morning I was included on an email asking a few of us if we’ve been able to use Fiddler.  He said when he tried to use it he saw it do its update check then make a request to oscex-en.url.trendmicro.com but it wouldn’t capture anything else regardless of which sites he visited.

I’ve been using Fiddler a lot lately to help test a new RESTful WCF service I’m prototyping and hadn’t been having any trouble with it but then I remembered that I didn’t have filters enabled.  I clicked over to the Filters tab and checked the “Show only Internet Explorer” traffic, refreshed a page, then nothing…  Fiddler wasn’t capturing anything.  What gives?  This worked the last time I used it.
