Can't reach a https secure site

Q: Can't reach a https secure site

To use some features on the Nascar.com web site, you need to log in through https://secure.audience.nascar.com. Problem is, the site can't be reached or pinged. Increasing ping time generates nothing but timeout errors. Something in the computer is blocking it from reaching that web address, whether it's entered as a name or a numeric address. This problem happens with four different web browsers - IE8, Firefox 3, Chrome and Safari.

It's a Gateway laptop with Vista SP1. It happens with a LAN connection. WiFi and Ev-Do. The web address is available on one machine with an identical WiFi link but not with the Gateway laptop.

Here are some of the attempts to solve the problem that have failed:

Resetting TCP/IP stack.
Switching DNS server.
Removing Norton Internet Security 2008.
Shutting down Windows Defender.
Running the computer with no firewall.
Removing and reinstalling network adapters and reinstalling drivers.
Running Vista in safe mode with networking.
Removing all temporary files and history.
Adding the domain to the IE trusted sites list.

The secure.audience.nascar.com address and the nascar.com domain are not blocked in the Hosts list.

NASCAR tech support has no idea what's going on.
Several checks of other web sites and Microsoft's online support on problems with accessing https secure sites have turned up no problems with accessing that site.

The Gateway has no trouble accessing several other https secure sites, but can not reach secure.audience.nascar.com.

The computer has no trouble reaching any other web sites with any of the three Internet connections it uses. Only this one site can not be reached.

Other "fixes" that didn't work:

Changing security settings in IE.
Re-registering DLLs.
Creating a second user account.

Device manager shows no problems with network adapters.
Malware scans show no problems.
Virus scans show no problems.
"netsh interface tcp set global autotuning" changes do not work.
Switching off the https requirement for trusted sites in IE does not work.
Running IE as an admiminstrator does not work.
Changing the assignment of an automatic IP address does not work.

Preferred Solution: Can't reach a https secure site

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello All,First time posting, but have been using this site for a few years now, and you have all been greatly helpfulMy problem is that I can no longer connect to https sites such as facebook. I have tried with Google Chrome, IE, and Firefox. I also cannot connect to windows update at all, it fails every time. I went ahead and wiped my hard drive and installed a fresh install of vista (64), and the problem still persists. I have even noticed that I am unable to reinstall skype successfully after the wipe.I have no issues when using my laptop or my ipad, I can connect to anything with those, but am at my wits end as far as what to do to fix this problem on my pc.Thanks in advance for any assistance you can give meEdit: Moved topic from Vista to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

A:HTTPS and secure site issue

Take a look at the guide here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic41067.html

Used Chrome accessing a website dealing with money and although it shown as a 'https:' its marked as 'not secure'.

Yet on the first page just giving you info, it is shown as 'Secure' .

But the next page where you give your details, it is shown as 'Not Secure' yet it is 'https:' but that is crossed out.

Reading on the net about this problem, it is related to Chrome marking most sites with 'http;' as 'Not Secure' since Chrome V56 release. Which is what I have.

So why would a 'https;' be shown as 'Not Secure' when its suppose to the 'http:' sites.

A:Chrome showing a 'https' site as 'not secure' instead of a '

Because HTTP sites are not secure, so if a site requires a password it will be marked as not secure if it's not using HTTPS. An HTTPS site can also be marked as not secure if the sites certificate has expired or has been revoked, or if it's signed for another site or incorrectly signed or another issue with it's certificate. I would be wary of using a site that deals with money if its showing as not being secure.

Let me start by saying that lately my bank website, Norton Safesearch and even your website appear to have replaced their secure certificates with outdated or insufficient security. Usually in these cases the https in the address bar is crossed out or has a yellow          ! triangle. If you click on that triangle or crossed out space you will see a grey box that says "your connection to this site is not private". My connection is a private home network as opposed to public. It used to say "you have not visited this site before today" but that phrase is no longer there. Of course I've gone to these sites before. In the grey box there is a tab titled 'connections'. Click on that and it says '! The identity of this website has not been verified' and '! Your connection to www.xxxxxxx.com is not encrypted'. These sites normally have the green bar in the address bar indicating a secure connection. Clicking on the green bar will give you the same grey box, only this time it says "Your connection to this site is private" and it will tell you 'the identity of this site has been verified by [name of certificate]. Valid Certificate Transparency supplied by the server'. It will say 'your connection is encrypted using an obsolete cipher suite, or [...encrypted using a modern cipher suite]. Both are followed by specific connection and encryption information, i.e. TLS 1.2.

Using internet explorer.
When typing in a website address www.example.com the browser auitomatically inserts https. This is fine, but does so when there is no https version of the site it goes to "we cant reach this page." Then have to manually remove the s and then it's fine.
This was how the computer was setup when it arrived.

I am unable to access Sign in to your Microsoft account on my desktop computer running Windows 10 on a home Ethernet network using Edge and IE11. I am connected to the Internet through a Fritz!Box 7490 DSL connection.

I originally tried to solve this problem as a network issue - and it may still turn out to be one - but since I am able to log in to my live.com account using Google Chrome on this computer and from Linux and OS X machines on the network, I am now looking at the possibility that it is some setting shared by Edge and IE11 that is causing my problem.

A secondary effect of this problem is that I am unable to activate Office 365 products, because once I enter my account email address, the activation process wants to take me to live.com to confirm my subscription.

I have seen a number of posts on this and other sites about the "Hmm..." messages, and that's the message I am shown when I try to access login.live.com. Since, in all of the other posts, the issue was a complete inability of Edge to access the sites, this seems to me to be something different. Thus, I started a new thread rather than add to one of the others.

I will be grateful for any and all suggestions on how to fix this problem.

Dear Friend,
I am Anil from India. I have recently joined the forum after struggling for a week to stablise my unstable PC. I used to have some Anti Virus software on my pc before few years. But since last few years I was not having any AV software as this PC was not being used for surfing etc.
Since I started to use it again for surfing, downloading etc., I wanted to instal avast AV software. I installed it from some recent installer file with me. But when it tried to update the virus database, I got the message that "can't connect to server". Then I tried to open avast.com. But I again got the error message "The page cannot be displayed". Then I uninstalled the avast and tried to open other antivirus sites like norton, mcafee, avg etc., but all failed.
Then I tried to update my system using automatoc update utility. But again failed. microsoft.com also failed to open.
I use GPRS connection through cellular connection to browse the network.

For some reason, I am unable to reach Ann Coulter - Official Home Page on my computer. It's been several weeks since I was last able to visit the site. The problem happens in every browser I have, including recent or current versions of Firefox, IE, Opera and Chrome. I can reach any other website I try to get to just fine. I never used to have any trouble reaching that website until about a month ago. No one else uses this computer and I live alone.

It appears that I've blocked that one site but I'm darned if I can figure out how.

Here's what I've tried so far:
1. Run Avast Free Antivirus with the latest version of the program and definitions. Results: no threats found with either the quick scan or the full scan.
2 Run Malware Bytes with the latest definitions. Results: Results: two threats found and removed but I still can't reach the Coulter website.
3. Checked my Hosts file. Results: nothing there is blocking any website.
4. Checked my router settings. Can't see any blocks there.
5. Had other people try to access the site; they were successful.
6. Googled and found one other forum where someone was having the same problem with respect to the Coulter website. But his problem apparently went away two weeks ago. He didn't indicate if he had done anything to make it go away.
7. Checked the Windows Event logs but can't see anything there reflecting my problem.

Can anyone suggest anything else I can check?

This is bizarre.

I'm trying to persuade my browser to connect with www.piratour.net. It times out and fails to find it.

I try on my phone using the home wi-fi - same result.

I switch off my phone wi-fi and try with data. Success!

This happens on the PC with both Firefox and Edge.

I open a command window and try ping www.piratour.net. Nothing, however the screen tells me immediately that the ip address is .

I have spent quality time with my ISP (Plusnet in the UK). The man tried that address from his own machine - no success.

I have tried changing the DNS servers (my idea). No luck.

The fact that the service guy also couldn't reach it suggests that the problem is somewhere way outside my setup.

I would appreciate any thoughts.

Usually when I login, am on certain part of a website, or when buying things, the https symbol is shown as a green lock but very recently when ever I go to login, buy things, or am on certain parts of websites that usually have the green lock, they no longer have a green lock but have this symbol (as shown below).
Ex. (Same website, same url, this is a real life example I snapped shot with the snipping tool on Windows 8)
Usually I would/should be getting this: 
Except now I sometimes, more often than not get this:  
This also happens when I login to websites that are usually secured by HTTPS and show the green lock.
I have even tried to download extensions for google chrome, such as "HTTPS Everywhere" and "KB SSL Enforcer". They worked at first on some websites and fixed the problem temporarily but then the symbol with the orange triangle lock continued to show up again. I ended up deleting those extensions. I have also tried to reinstall windows and the problem had mostly gone away for a short while but then again resurfaced. Can someone explain to me what's happening and how I can fix it.

A:How come HTTPS isn't secure for me when it usually is?

-Scroll down settings until you see the 'Advanced settings' line at the bottom.  

-Click on advanced settings

-Scroll down to the 'Change Proxy Settings' button - Click on this

- You should now see the 'Internet Properties' box

- Select 'Advanced' from the tabs at the top in the Internet Properties box
-Tick the box titled 'Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering' - (this is probably the first line under Accelerated Graphics) Click OK.

Hi guys!!  Boy, I hope you can help me because I am about to pull my hair out over this one.
I think I got infected with some virus called HEU_AEGIS_HttpDownloader blah blah a month back.  I think this because it came up in my AV (Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security).  The AV did its thing and I guess cleaned the virus or removed it.  It no longer shows up.  During this time, I also received about a dozen of other warnings about a suspicious file which Trend deleted whenever it showed up.  It was always found at: C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temp\***.tmp.exe (the *** would always be some random letters and numbers).  This virus and ***.tmp.exe file no longer shows up.  However...
Since that virus popped up (and these two things may not be related) I keep getting a web threat listed in Trend Micro which shows a web threat which happens about twice every hour.  It says it 'blocked' a web threat to website address 176.9.##.###/ip.php
I have checked my services, msconfig start up settings, registry, and even a complete search on my hard drive for that IP (which I partially masked on purpose).  Nothing can find it.
I tried running full scans of Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security, Ad Aware, MalwareBytes, and Super AntiMalware.  All of them say my machine is clean.
I even tried using my earliest system restore point, and that did not rid me of these constant web threats.

A:HEU_AEGIS, computer keeps trying to reach a suspicious site

I believe I found the cause of this issue.  A rootkit was hiding itself pretty well.  Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, Trend Micro Titanium, and Ad Aware could not find it.  I finally tried Kaspersky's TDSSKiller and it found and deleted an .exe file and registry entry it said was a high risk.  Since it removed the file, I have had no web threats in the past 24 hours.
Here is the text of the infected file TDSSKiller reported and removed:
File: C:\Document and Settings\Owner\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\SystemCache\6.0\25\winhlp32.exe
Malware object, high risk
If anyone else is experiencing a constant barage of web threats being blocked and can't find the cause; be sure to try TDSSKiller.

I'm getting a very frustrating issue with connecting to a secure api - it's at https://api.betdaq.com/v2.0/secure/secureservice.asmx
From my windows 10 machine I can access it fine, and (using Firefox) I can see that it has a security certificate supplied by COMODO CA Limited, and connects over TLS 1.2 with the following cipher suite:  TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA.
All fine.
I've got an app running on a Server 2016 Datacenter VPS though, which refuses to connect.  The VPS providers have assured me that there are no firewall or proxy restrictions, I can telnet fine to the server, but I can't make any headway with understanding
what the connection issues are.
Using IE on the 2016 server to hit the api, I get the following response:
This page can?t be displayed

Turn on TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2 in Advanced settings and try connecting to https://api.betdaq.com  again. If this error persists, it is possible that this site uses an unsupported protocol or cipher suite such as RC4 (link for the details), which
is not considered secure. Please contact your site administrator.
(And just to confirm, I don't experience these issues with other secure sites / services).
I've installed Microsoft Message Analyzer and Wireshark to see what's happening, but neither flag up any errors (at least not to my untrained eye).  The client hello is sent, but then there are a host of RST ACK messages, and that's it.  (Apologies,

I havne't been able to view secure pages on my pc for a week or so now. I have followed various suggestions found online like, clearing caches, ensuring ssl boxes are checked, uninstalled xp sp2 + norton, disabled firewalls; I am using ie6, but the same problem happens with mozilla and opera. Any suggestions would be graetly appreciated.

Thanks, Aimee

A:Can't view secure pages (https), please help

Wow, okay, before anything, REINSTALL NORTON AND SP2!!!

I've never heard of those suggestions for fixing https problems. Well, I'll admit i haven't heard of many https problems, but i'm still gonna try to help.

Now, first of all, see if you are able to view the pages using an alternative browser such as FireFox or Opera.



If you ARE able to see https pages with those, then I have two suggestions:

-Ditch IE6. It's crap anyway.

-Check IE6's security settings.

I haven't been able to view secure pages on my pc for a week or so now. I have followed various suggestions found online like, clearing caches, ensuring ssl boxes are checked, uninstalled xp sp2 + norton, disabled firewalls; I am using ie6, but the same problem happens with mozilla and opera. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Aimee

cannot access secure on my laptop neither using IE7 nor Firefox

i was able to access these sites properly but now it is not possible. actually i am now at a clients place and am using their automatic script for network access... thought they say that nothing has been restricted... couple of my colleagues who use the same script are able to access all the sites for e.g. gmail, orkut and also the banking sites... hence, it seems to be something with my system...

my config is as follows:

Toshiba Satellite A80 laptop
OS - XP Sp2
Browsers - IE7 & Firefox (mostly access firefox)

the error that I get when i try to access these sites from Firefox is as follows:

The connection was reset
The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.
Let's try to troubleshoot the problem:
* Check Internet connection: Your Internet connection seems to be working.
General troubleshooting tips:
* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

when i tried pinging the site using firefox below is what i got:

PING httpswww.google.comaccountsServiceLoginservicemail ( 56(84) bytes of data.

So ive been having this problem for about a week now.

I cannot connect to google websites, facebook, email websites. Ive come to the conclusion that its only secure websites as websites like reddit and msn.com work.

Ive tried alot of solutions that have worked for other people from around the web and so far nothing has worked.

These problems happen in IE and Chrome but NOT Firefox.

I dont have an AntiVirus or a Firewall installed, windows firewall is disabled.

Ive Tried:
Checking Use SSL 2.0/3.0
Clearing SSL State
Restarting Computer
Uninstalling browsers
Clearing temporary internet files
Disabling protected mode (Internet Options)
Among various other solutions ive seen around

So does anyone have any idea of what it could be?

Hello mouse now I don't know your reason for not having any AV on board there are plenty of free ones and my philosophy is having one is way better than none at all. I run Kaspersky paid for with add on - on call scanners.

Personally if I were you I would at least run these




download from bleeping computer ? delete any rubbishthese find.

If you feel inclined to have an AV on board take a look at this list
Probably the Best Free Security List in the World - Part I - Page 2

page 2 and I would at least have Windows defender running as well as the firewall - call it paranoia if you will but there are plenty of idiots out there who can and will take advantage of you.
The SueprAntiSpyware I linked is good at rooting out site that keep tabs on you for example.

I am using Windows ME, and the latest build of Internet Explorer 5.5. Last week my browser inexplicably stopped loading secure pages (those with the https prefix). I did all the easy things....cleared my cache and returned all settings to default.

I attempted to update the cypher strength of the browser from 0 to 128 bit encryption. I downloaded the updater program and ran it, without errors, several times...but the Help menu still says that I have 0 bit encryption. It seeminly refuses to take effect, though I get no error messages.

When I tried to run System Restore I found that all my restore points had been corrupted, causing my machine to reboot mid-stream, then informing me that a restoration is not possible when the system reboots.

I just did a fresh install of Windows ME, Office 2000, McAfee Clinic and Zonealarm three weeks ago, and everything worked fine; I shouldn't have any horrendous conflicts from long term Registry Detritus.

I downloaded Netscape 6.1, and it loads secure sites with no problem, so I know that it is not an issue with my ISP.

What could possibly be wrong?

I have installed IE 9 and reverted back to IE 8 at least 4 times - as I cannot open https:// sites such as www.chase.com. I am running 64 Bit Win 7 Professional on HP dv5-1125nr 64bit AMD machine that has 6GB of RAM and a partioned HD with lots of room. I have installed IE 9 and it displays most pages just fine, seems to be quicker as well. Just to be sure that there was no lingering effects I have reinstalled Windows, reinstalled all drivers, with the latest drivers available. During that process, with IE8 installed, I had quite a lot of problems getting Acrobat Reader, Adobe flash 64-bit, Adobe Flash 32 bit and Shockwave to download and install correctly. I even had trouble downloading those applications - What's up with that??(side issue?). I have read here and on the web and found indication that all of these last mentioned programs could contribute to IE 9 not working correctly. I have a large swap file, and sufficent Video. I am looking for any and all suggestions. I am running out of ideas and places to research this issue. Thanks to all for any suggestions.

A:I can't open https (secure website) after IE 9 install.

Try this:

Open IE9.
On the menu bar go to Tools >Options >Advanced.
Scroll down to Security, and make sure "Do not save encrypted pages to disk" is unchecked.

If you have any add-ons try running IE9 with add-ons disabled.

About the Adobe problems:
Why doesn't Adobe Flash work in Internet Explorer?

Are all your Adobe products up to date?

And if you have Java: Verify Java Version
What version of IE9 are you using, 32 or 64bit? if it is 64 try the 32bit flavor, and vice versa.

Hi,My particulars:Firefox XP SP2 Home EditionOutlook ExpressDial-up on a laptop*Not* on a network and no router (laptop plugged into phone jack for dial-up)My Firefox is set to *not* allow cookies (though I have exceptions for sites like bleepingcomputer.com, and the library, etc.). I also block pop-ups in Firefox settings. I use Firefox for all web browsing. I only use IE for Windows Update. In IE, I have it set to high security for internet, intranet, medium for trusted sites (which is Windows Update) and Restricted Sites is set to the default custom level (which deny/prompts everything). None of that probably matters, since I use Firefox for browsing, but I thought I'd mention it just in case.I honestly don't remember if it's been like this all the time, but at least semi-lately (last couple months), I've noticed that when I'm connecting to a secure webpage (like the library logon or Amazon.com logon, etc.), it takes a REALLY long time for the page to come up. Sometimes a minute or more it seems like. I know secure sites take longer to load (especially on dial-up, right?), but that seems really really long...Any thoughts as to why this would be...?(I suppose it's possible a setting in Windows could have been changed by me that would cause this...? But I have no idea what that could be...)Any help is appreciated -- thanks! Edit/clarification: It's usually the first page that takes so long to load up.

Hello to everyone in the community. This is my first post and I hope I'm doing it right - if not, please tell me and I'll make whatever changes are needed.

I'd be grateful for any help that anyone can give me on being unable to access secure [https] web sites. I'm running IE6.0 on XP home. Everything was fine up until a few weeks ago when for some unknown reason I suddenly couldn't access https pages. I didn't make any changes to my IE settings at all - it just happened.

I've tried resetting the IE defaults, I've tried checking and unchecking the SSL2.0 and SSL3.0 boxes in IE settings, I've made sure that the proxy server box is not checked, I've checked the cipher strength [its 128] and I regularly clear cookies etc. but nothing helps. I just can't access https pages.

What happens is that I get an error message on the status bar which says done with errors and then, if I click it, I get an an error message saying permission is denied. Also, the Internet symbol [the green and blue globe] that should be in the right hand pane of the status bar is replaced by the My Computer symbol. At first this was intermittent but now it is happening all the time I'm logged on.

Its driving me crazy! I can't access most of my email carriers, do any home banking etc. Any help or suggestions would be welcome.

I would like to say thank you for the tutorials - I found the ones on spywareblaster, spybot and adaware to be just a... Read more

A:Unable to access secure [https] web sites

Welcome to the site Colin.While there could be a number of reasons why you can not access https sites, the information that you provided may have narrowed a few of them down.Have you recently installed any applications from the internet? It is possible that some may contain spyware, or malware that is putting a restriction on access, even if you have changed it. You may want to run Hi Jack This, and post a log, just in case.Can you access those sites with an alternate browser, such as Opera or Firefox? If you do not have either one of those, here is a link to Opera.Have you recently upgraded to SP2? Although there are minor bugs from some people, it is possible that you could be included among those.I will be checking back later. Right now, I need to go help out at a garage sale.

All three of my browsers (Firefox, Comodo & IE) show up as blank pages.

I can access all other sites, except when the URL has an Https on it. Using netstat i saw that port #443 was not in a listening state, yet none of my firewalls, (comodo antivirus, Windows firewall or peerblock) seem to be blocking the port.

I am fairly new at this and i cannot restore to a later date as i do not know when this actually started up, and i cannot restore as i have data on this PC that i need, and am unable to backup into any other form.

I have been unable to log into a particular https site that I use for work. As I type in my name and password, I get "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage".

I diagnosed the connections and looked for more information and there is nothing obvious that stands out.

I assumed it was an issue with Windows 7, so I created a Virtual PC to operate Windows XP and I am able to log in.

Any ideas? I would prefer to access this site through my host PC.

Thanks so much for your replies!

I normally use Firefox but the following also happen with IE. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* First problem:Webpages open unexpectedly in tabs - apparently random sites, usually advertising but a few have been picked up by AVG as malicious and prevented from loading. I try to close the tab as soon as I notice activity but am not always fast enough!Sometimes clicking the top link on a Google search doesn't take me to the expected page and I am redirected to another search engine such as 'Ask Jeeves' with its own list of search results.May be relevent... several weeks ago I updated 'Format Factory', freeware media converter and failed to notice that it would also install a 'Quickstores toolbar'. Not only that but it changed my browser home page from Google to Ask Jeeves. I *thought* I had removed this via 'Windows Add/Remove Programs'; perhaps it is still lurking?The redirect problem had begun before June 30 but on that date I experienced a Malware attack and 'Rogue.AntivirusSuite' and 'Trojan.Fraudpack' were (apparently) removed using Malwarebytes. I had to start XP in Safe Mode to run Malwarebytes and before closing down (still in Safe Mode) I noticed a desktop shortcut to eBay's webpage which I thought had been deleted some weeks previously.

Hello! Thank you all in advance for reading and helping.

I own an old Dell Latitude D600 and yes I do know it's outdated. However it is a trusty little thing and comes in handy for basic internet stuffs. Until recently. For my main browser I use firefox.

I had went on vacation and took my laptop along. Not wanting the battery to be plugged in on the trip there and back I left it out. At the time I really had no net connection and was mainly using it to store photos and videos. When I got back everything loaded fine until I tried to access my e-mail account. I had received a not trusted site error and apparently the certificates that went along were considered outdated and my laptop couldn't acquire new ones. I tried everything from rebooting to checking the security options as firefox tech support had instructed me to do. Thinking it's firefox I had tried internet explorer and google chrome all which seems to have the same problem. Nothing so far has helped. I'm turning here to hopefully get real human help. Thank you all once again for reading and helping.

Using IE8 on Windows 7 Pro on my laptop, I am able to login to the control panel of my Web site (hosted by Siteground, if that's significant) but on my desktop computer, with the same software, I can't. Siteground had me run a PING and a TRACERT and concluded that everything is just dandy and told me to find a "local computer technician" to solve this problem. The desktop is brand new (just a few days old) so I'm relatively confident that it has to do with a software setting somewhere as opposed to, for example, a blocked 443 port at the router. I experience the same problem in Firefox so I'm guessing the software issue isn't with IE8 specifically. Help?!
