For whatever reason i cannot access certain websites such as:
Mostly all https sites
No email.
things such as lastfm, ebay, etc..
I can access many other sites but the main problem is when i try accessing the above sites it get error or it says i'm not conneceted to the interenet.
I've tried changing firewall and turning security off 100% with no results. I've also made sure i have no problems with mal/spyware.
This has been a problem for well over a year now and i figured maybe it's time i resolve it.
System restore is not an option!

System Restore is a no go area, if its been happening for over a year, your points will have gone.

Anyway, assuming Internet Explorer, go into Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced. Somewhere in here are two boxes for using SSL2 and SSL3. Tick them both, close Internet Explorer and restart Internet Explorer.

hi,

hopefully you have this resolved by now, however if you are still having issues and suspect that it is malware related I would start with our malware forum and see if they can make sure you don't have any malware installed.
