I just started experiencing a problem with going to any secure sites, such as email or my internet banking. I've tried changing the security settings on Internet Explorer 6, scanning for syware, and used the WinsockXPfix, but I am unable to figure out where the source of the problem is coming from..

is this only for IE6? Have you tried any other browsers?

Also try cleaning out your temporary internet files and cookies.

On the pages that are blank, hold down ctrl and presh refresh so it refreshes your internet cache.

Hi jdblue23...

Try deleting your cookies and temporary internet files. From Internet Explorer, click on "Tools" in the toolbar and select "Internet Options". Under the "General" tab, in the "Temporary Internet Files" section, click on the button to "Delete Cookies" and then the "Delete Files" button. Click "Apply" then "Ok".

Reboot and try to access the problem sites.

What Firewall are you using? Are your ActiveX and Java applications up to date?

Just for the sake of troubleshooting, try turning the Firewall off and try one of the sites. Turn the firewall back on after trying and let me know if you are able to access the site.
