Recently as if a slew of bad luck I have come across problems with my computer. Hope anyone can help!
I use a laptop with windows xp service pack 2 and recently began having trouble on my computer. I hope you can help me! I'm at a lost where to begin.
My first problem is that whenever, I try to access a secure website (with https) with any browser (Microsoft or Netscape) I can't get through anymore. I have the windows firewall on and this problem occurred out of the blue. As a result, I cannot receive windows updates anymore either. I followed the directions given (check settings, connections security)-nothing?! How can this happen all of a sudden?
Second, I hope my problem is not too long but also whenever I shut down my computer I get a message: ccApps program ending now. Windows station is shutting down." I also checked the system events log and found these errors: "waiting for the lxcf_device failed to start due to error: the service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion."
And lastly, whenever I restart my computer I get the message that the Norton AV autoprotect driver couln not be loaded. Please restart your computer." It's been a long time since I updated and have not renewed the Antivirus program. I don't know if this is causing my problems. Would it be better just to uninstall Norton AV through the remove programs and install another antivirus program? I realize my questions are long but I have no idea what to do. Thanks in advance!
