My friend cannot access sites that use PHP. Is there anything he can do to fix that? He has tried IE7, Firefox, and Opera, but still nothing. Thanks for any help.

Hello juggalords,

The following troubleshooting guide addresses a different issue, but may be indirectly related/resolved through the steps presented:
Windows XP: Internet Explorer Cannot Connect to Secure Web Sites - HelpWithWindows.com

Please have your friend go through this guide and give us an updated status report.

Regards,

We tried everything in the link and still nothing. He can access the site using a proxy site, but not one that uses PHP.

What sites are not working?
A PHP site is a site that uses server-side technology to make web page. There is nothing to install on a client's end as the page is made by the server on the fly.
It's possible to filter access to a website through PHP technology if said user has been banned from that site.

Try the following as well:
Check the file integrity of the IE and Outlook:

Start | Run, type scf /scannow (It might ask for the Windows CD to upload the corrupted files)

Re-registering the softpub.dll (dynamic link library) :

Start | Run, type regsvr32 softpub.dll andd wait for the OK message; then try again.

Regards,

Ax

I'm also having problems with .php sites. www.we.ridebik.es is the site in question. It is the only site that I cannot access.

I use IE7 but have tried firefox with no luck. I have also checked the firewall settings.

I am using Windows Live One Care and I am wondering weather the site above may have been blocked by accident (so many alerts pop up with Live One Care).... I have no clue here but I am hoping someone can help.
