Hello everyone,

my computer will not view any secure (https) pages. I can view any unsecure page like the login page to yahoo mail but when I try to login and the page goes to a secure https page I get the page can't be displayed or not found error. I have been trying to fix this problem most of the night and I am at a loss.
My Chiper is at 128, I have all updates, ran spyware, cleaned out my internet files, Use SSL 2.0 and 3.0 are checked, I verified that the cryptographic services servece is started and I have also re-registered the Dll files, Clear the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) slate and AutoComplete history, Verify that the Date and Time Settings on Your Computer Are Correct,
I have used test sites and it will not connect to them. I don't know what else to do. Help

thanks - Jon

That's Funny, that is another site that I have been using. Been looking at it all day. I will try some of those things and get back to you. I just had a HOTFIX so maybe that is what it is. Seems to be a very common problem!

Thanks - Jon

I figured it out! - I uninstalled Norton and now it works just like new. I had tried everything and nothing but that worked. My Norton had just expired, so I can't help but wonder if that had something to do with it? Maybe I am just paranoid. Thanks

Maybe not that paranoid, my mother couldn't log into her Hotmail account. I was able to determine that this was due to neither IE nor Netscape being able to display secure sites.

A search on "https" brought me to this topic and uninstalling the remnants of Norton Internet Security fixed it for her as well.
