(CNN) - Microsoft finds itself under scrutiny by the Chinese government again.

Authorities say they're investigating the company for possible violation of China's anti-trust laws.

The government says Microsoft has not fully disclosed information related to its Windows and Office systems, without providing more details.

China's State Administration of Industry and Commerce visited Microsoft offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chengdu Monday as part of the probe, according to a government statement.

Top-level managers are also being questioned.

Microsoft has also confirmed the investigation.
