#1, I don't think I have the SP1 or SP2 installed. I was at microsoft.com and looking in the ie6 area and found a link for the problem I was having. They said it had to do with a problem in the service pack. i downloaded the patch and went i tried to install it a message popped up saying that i didn't have sp1 installed. I went to my control pannel and looked in the section for adding and removing programs. I found service pack 2, but it had no information to it, in other words, I couldn't uninstall it.
Now, i never remember getting a notice of getting the service pack 2. But from what i was reading on that website there seems to be alot of problems with ie and the service packs.
maybe i need to reinstall ie?

1. Please click HERE to download System Security Suite.
2. Extract it from the zip file into a folder and doubleclick on sss.exe.
3. Check the boxes under the 'Items to Clear' tab and click 'Clear Selected Items'.
4. Reboot when prompted.
5. Try out those sites now.
6. Please provide update on problem (If resolved or not)

This is a different program that will essentially do the same work. Make sure Cookies will be cleaned.

is it just secure sites that the victim cannot access? I f so, i have seen this happen when even though the IE settings are OK, the Firewall settings are blocking the access, in particular I have seen it happen with ZA. I cured that one by adding the sites required to ZA's trusted zone
I beleive that you are using McAfee firewall? If so read the help file on how to add sites to the Trusted Zone.
Please tell me how it goes. I would walk you through it but I don't use that product.

I have mcaffee virus, but actually the firewall has never worked. I don't think I ever bought it. But i definatelly have the virus protection. my firewall is good old windows xp home firewall.
BTW, still the same problems. I downloaded firefox to see if maybe another browser would help, still cannot access the websites. Even when I google the page I can't go there. Even cannot go there if it is a second or third page in.

With all browser windows closed,
Go to Start->Run and copy and paste each of the following, hitting ok after each:
Reboot, then try to access the sites that were giving you problems again.
