"Secure Connection Failed"

Q: "Secure Connection Failed"

I have noticed after the recent update to Firefox Version 37.0.1 I am getting this message when trying to log into some sites.

Secure Connection Failed

The connection to web4.secureinternetbank.com was interrupted while the page was loading.

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

I also tried restarting the computer. I cleared all history, cookies, and cache as well, there was no change, still having the problem. I tried going through IE and everything worked fine, so the problem seems to be with FF only. I tried on a different laptop in the house using FF, same issue. My fiance logged into the website from his work computer at work with no issues. I did it in safe mode with addons disabled, no change. I also just noticed when trying to go to the bank website, next to the web address I have the Triangle icon with the ! in the center. I clicked on it and can screen shot what it says if you need to see that.
What do I need to do to correct this issue. I have not had any problems in the past, it just seems to be an issue since the current update. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!!

Preferred Solution: "Secure Connection Failed"

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Dear Tech Support Guy Experts:

Hello! Could you please help me? I am not sure whether this is a malware problem or simply an internet browser issue.

About a week or so ago, my Firefox automatically updated to Firefox 57, Quantum. I have Windows 7. I noticed that websites were loading more slowly.

Yesterday, I was surfing as usual and suddenly I got 2 blue screen crashes within a 2 or 3 hour period. I had to restart Windows each time. I ran Spybot as well as CC Cleaner (cleaning up the registry as well). I tried to do a system restore as well. Then I noticed that, although I can gain access to the internet (the firefox home page), I cannot gain access to any other website.

Each time I try to open a page, the new Firefox ball wags back and forth, like it's taunting me, and then finally the message "Secure Connection Failed" / "Problem loading page" comes up.

I tried to go through the troubleshooting steps on the firefox website, checking extentions and plugins. I ckecked my firewall and i do see MozillaFirefox listed.

I am not able to clear history, because for that I need internet connectivity or workable browser, right? I also cannot refresh firefox or download a new version of firefox. How does one install an internet browser when one does not have an internet browser?

Could this be Malware, do you think?

I have had both MalwareBytes (the paid version) running the whole time, as well as the free anti-virus program "Commodo". However... Read more

Hi I have xp and explorer but generally use chrome. I recently performed a system recovery and everything seemed pretty good then suddenly when i try to go to my aol mail I get this message,"Cannot connect to the real mail.aol.com Something is currently interfering with your secure connection to mail.aol.com Try to reload this page in a few minutes or after switching to a new network. If you have recently connected to a new wifi network finish logging in before reloading.If you were to visit mail.aol.com right now you might share private information with an attacker. To protect your privacy Chrome will not load the page until it can establish a secure connection to the real mail.aol.com. I have been getting that for 2-3 days. I tried looking up the problem online but i don't understand all that server and network talk. Any ideas. Please talk to me like i'm a child. thank you.

A:aol email blocked "something interfering with secure connection"

It may be your anti-virus is blocking that address and it will need to be added to a secure list.
I'm not sure how it is done exactly so hopefully one of the techs with browser and networking experience can help.

Yesterday my brother tried to enter the admin page of our modem, using Microsoft Edge could not get into the page while using Mozilla Firefox has succeeded. However, when he started typing username and password, a message appeared saying "This connection is not secure, the entered credentials may be vulnerable". He is however entered the page by entering the data. Turning to different sites, I noticed that this message appears in different sites (not many). It happens with both Edge and Firefox and also with another PC where I use Ubuntu. My question is, could my modem data be stolen? Or if the site where I log in is reliable, can I ignore the message "this connection is not secure"? On Edge, the message does not appear while I log in to the account, but to the left of the page URL.
 
Excuse me for the mistake in the title, I'm not American.

A:Mozilla Firefox message "this connection is not secure"

You will get this message occasionally on web pages that do not use https:// (look at what shows up in your browser's address bar) and that request a username and password if those are requested directly on the webpage presented that is not using https:// protocol.  If your modem-router presents a pop-up login dialog you generally don't get the warning you describe.  For myself, I don't worry about this when dealing with my modem-router since the traffic related to it never exits my local area network.
 
The same applies for other webpages that ask for username and password that don't use https://.   There are a number of sites that were coded ages ago that fall into this category.  There is an online automotive forum that I participate on where I get this warning.
 
Unless someone is actively electronically "watching you" the risk is relatively small of your password falling into the wrong hands.  In any case, if one is still using sites like this and wishes to continue doing so then having a site-specific password (which you should be doing for all websites that require you to login anyway - even though most of us are not perfect in following this practice) is critical since were it to be compromised it could not be used as a possible way to log in to other sites "the hidden observer" might have observed that you log in to.

I just reinstalled Windows XP professional (on my other computer), due to a viral disaster. I cannot access internet or email through that computer, but others using the router work fine. It says that the adapter card is working fine, but no IP address can be identified. I looked and found the driver installed, but could it be bad? The virus didn't impact the connection, but the re-install lost it. There is only the 1394.sys network connection. It lacks a "local area connection". I'll add more details as needed. Any suggestions? Thanks kindly. Let me know if I should be posting on a different forum.

Hi, I've been having wireless network issues ever since we purchased a new router (Netgear n300) probably about one year ago. My laptop has no issues with other wifi connections, but when I am connected at home, the connection continually drops and reconnects. It usually disconnects for 10-15 seconds, and then reconnects. This happens constantly while I am at the house.

When I troubleshoot the connection, the message "Default Gateway not available" often pops up. When the connection drops while a webpage is loading, the browser tells me that "The DNS lookup failed". Also, our home network connection is named "Home-FORCE", but on my laptop the name shows up as "Home-FORCE 2".

Has anybody seen or had this issue before? I am wondering if the problem is with the settings on my laptop, or if I made an error while setting up the wireless router.

There are several other laptops in my house that connect just fine, and my smartphone has no issues with this connection. However, when my laptop is connected to wifi, other laptops in the house begin having the same issues.

Any help is much appreciated, and I will gladly provide any additional information that I can.

A:Network Connection dropping/reconnecting. "DNS Lookup Failed"

Have you done a ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew at a command prompt? It does sound like some setting(s) are amiss on the laptop. Go into control panel on the laptop that isn't working and go to the networking properties and check to see if get DNS automatically is selected. I will post exactly how to do that when I get home soon

...Is what it says when I try to repair my wired internet connection, which doesn't work. I just re installed Windows XP Professional SP3 on my desktop, using the installation disk, because I was having an UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME blue screen error. Note, it was working perfectly fine before I re installed Windows, so I highly doubt it it a hardware problem. Upon re installing said Windows, I tried to connect to the internet via internet explorer after the installation was complete. Come to find out that the internet doesn't work, and I have no idea why. I've tried reading about this on other forums and threads, but to no avail. Here is what I've already tried:
- Removing ipsec.sys and tcpip.sys and using sfc /scannow in Command Prompt with the installation disk in to get clean versions off the disk.
- Getting ipsec.sys and tcpip.sys from my internet compatible laptop, and replacing the ones on my desktop with the ones on my laptop.
- Finding a newer version of the 1394 Net Adapter Driver with no success.
If anyone has any suggestions or insight as to how I can fix this, please help?

A:"Failed to query TCP/IP settings of the connection. Cannot proceed."

For starters what network adapters do you have in your network properties?

When you click Start, point to and click Control Panel, and then double-click Network Connections, or if you right-click My Network Places on the desktop and then click Properties

You should have the Local Area Network, Possible Wireless Network and the 1934 Net Adapter. If you are missing these the next step is to check drivers, This is done from the device manager:

To access Device Manager, use any of the following methods: Click Start, click Run, and then type devmgmt.msc.
Right-click My Computer, click Manage, and then click Device Manager.
Right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
Type the following command at a command prompt:start devmgmt.msc
Once in verify what you have under network adapters, May also remove/re-install this.


Finally, Reset the tcp/ip system. From command prompt:

netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt

What are your thoughts about this?

A password that uses 3 common words with spaces is much more secure than one with special character, numbers, capital & small letter

If true then I will try to reconfigure my passwords this way.


 

A:Passwords: "This is fun" is 10 times more secure than "J4fS!2"

If you ever created BitCoin or any other cryptocurrency wallet, you could see that majority of them does not ask for password. Instead, they give you passphrase which has usually 12 words, which you use, along with few more security measures, to sign in on a new device.

Some wallets will give you passphrase, ask you to enter PIN and even offer two-step verfiication.

You should know that x.x.2.1 is incorrect. For the router address shown, all devices that connect to it *must* be 192.168.3.x where x > 1 and < 255.

I would suspect that you have some static configuration data in the devices.

You want your router to offer DHCP in the range 2->32 (that's more than enough) and
you want all systems to use DHCP for the IP address and DNS settings.

Remove anything in the Alternative Configurations

Hello Guys and Girls,

My wireless internet connections are currently set to a manually configured status, but this means I am having problems connecting to other wireless connections with free (ie unsecured) connections.

Hi everybody,

I suddenly lost the ability to connect to the internet through cable. I think it is related to the security update addressing a vulnerability in kerberus (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/3011780). I have no idea what it does, but I'm reasonably sure that it happened just after the update.

The network connection keeps cycling between "identifying" and "network cable unplugged" every 2-3 seconds.

I'm running windows 7 on an older lenovo laptop and I've tried rebooting, system restore, reinstalling the drivers, removing lenovo's connectivity program, uninstalling the security update manually but all to no avail.

A thread with a similar problem led me to try changing the "link speed and duplex" from "auto negotiation" to "10 mbps full duplex" under the advanced tab of the network connection properties, this gives me a network connection but no internet access.

Connecting the cable through the side of the computer changes nothing compared to connection through the docking station.

I can access the internet just fine through wifi.

Any ideas? Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks.

You should first try resetting the router by holding down the reset button for 30 seconds, still holding down the button, unplug the router for 30 seconds, power back up while still holding down the button for 30 more seconds.

After that it's required that you go into the routers settings and make sure the wireless is set up correctly, you need to add SSID "name of network" set up a password to connect, then choose the security and encryption, WPA2 and AES encryption tends to work best with Windows 7 drivers.

After that check your wireless profile for this connection by going to the Network and Sharing center, look left for "Manage wireless connections" and use the same settings that you used for the router.

If you are still having problems please post the ipconfig/all from this machine and I'll have a look at it.

Mods, if you feel that this thread is more of a "Windows" issue, please feel free to move this thread.

Here last year I did my second build because I was having "boot" issues. Wasn't certain what exactly the problem was at the time. But something some how screwed up the boot sequence in my system, and where everything was pretty much "outdated." I just went ahead and did another build.

Though, since then I've been pondering around with the thought of using a SATA to IDE adapter so that I can retrieve what ever salvageable data I can from one of the two HDD's that was in my last build. So I finally broke down and ordered a couple different one's earlier this week.

Unfortunately, I've been running in to some problem(s) when I try to launch with the IDE in place.

Upon initial launching, the boot sequence seem to take some time longer than it normally does with out the IDE HDD in place. Though after a 15-20sec lapse I'll get an error screen displaying an windows error code of "0xc000000e" with a prompt message below stating "The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible"

I searched all over online to see what that error code represents, only to get "pages after pages" of sites with each site telling me something different.

I have no intentions of using this as a third HDD in my system. I just want to retrieve select data from it.

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".


Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":




The second picture is of the properties window of the first .mp3 in the list above:




I copied some .mp3 files to another (old) PC on my home network, and it displayed the duration field correctly:




Also, the properties window correctly shows the duration also:





I'm not the only person to have this problem. I received a private message from a member of another forum where I posted about this problem several weeks ago. That person also has the same problem with the duration field.

Hi, so currently i have a problem, every time i click on a launcher this message appears "The drive or network connection that the shortcut 'Planetside 2.lnk' refers to is unavailable. Make sure that the disk is properly inserted or the network resource is available, and then try again". (please refer to the attachment to see the message for yourself)

Additional information: the harddrive(2TB) that i am using for the computer has been split into two drives. The "C:" drives usually contain necessary programs for a standard computer, and the "D:" drives has all my games (planetside 2 is one of them), work, music and so on. After seeing that message above appear for the first time today, i also realised that my "D:" has also disappear (completelt vanished), so basically every shortcut that is source from that drive is not working. I dont think it is anything to do with the wiring, as the "C:" drive is still there, it is part of the same hard drive.

I have look at other post, saying reinstall the program bla bla bla. But that isn't my main problem at this moment, the major problem is taht i dont have that secondary drive anymore, so even if i can reinstall the program, where will i put it, my major program drive "C:" is almost full, and this drive have other important document in it, so i cant really reinstall that :S.

Hey, I am really hoping someone can help me solve this problem, it's driving me up the wall!
When I started using my computer this morning everything was fine, and then "no network access" kept appearing, along with "limited connection/connectivity". I would troubleshoot the problem, but then at the end of the troubleshoot it would freeze, and my screen went black, so I had to turn my computer off and then on again.

Hello everyone,I've been having a problem since I updated to Windows 8.1My internet wi-fi connection is unusually low and is not working after only minutes of browsing the internet. The problem is always fixed after I run troubleshoot problems and is saying that the default Gateway is unavailable. My netword card might be the source of the problem even tough I updated the drivers. I'm not sure which one I have because drivers from Ralink and Qualcomm seem to be working both so :/Please help ^^

Hi,
Welcome to the forums, go to device manager, expand "Network Adapters" and find out the make of your card and post here, while you are in Device Manager, right click wireless adapter, click properties, select "Advanced" tab, select "Auto" from the drop down ( as in 2nd snip) for 802.11n Channel width for 2.4.

My ISP (Charter Pipeline) offers only "dynamic" broadband cable service. I've found that when using my D-Link router in dynamic mode (default setup) I often have problems with false "404" DNS errors (i.e.; "this page cannot be displayed") and/or web pages that download with (red x) place markers where small graphic images should be. Updating my router's firmware to the latest stable version improved it's performance however the errors still occur albeit less often.

On the other hand, if I switch the router to "static" mode and manually enter the necessary settings, everything works great. Since I seem to be unable to fully resolve the problems in dynamic mode I'm wondering what sort of future issues I'm likely to encounter if I go with static mode on a full-time basis. To be more specific, my understanding is that the ISP will change certain settings from time to time since this is the nature of a dynamic broadband connection.

With that in mind, my questions are:

1) What settings will most likely be changed by the ISP?
2) How often might the changes occur?
3) Are there any workarounds to minimize the inconvenience?

My router is a D-Link "DI-624" (Version "C", firmware version 2.42). If it makes any difference, the router has an option to set a "Static DHCP"

Thanks in advance for any words of wisdom ;-)

-Mike

I'm posting this in the Vista forum because this has never happened with Windows 2000 or XP.

I bought two exact duplicate models of hard disks. I set up Vista Ultimate on one of my systems. I used Acronis True Image 10 to clone the operating disk to the factory-new, never-used, same model disk as a backup drive in the event the first disk failed. I put in the clone to be sure it runs; but, I get the error mentioned in the title of this thread.

Now, if the second disk is supposed to be a clone of the first, why does this happen and how can I fix it?

I'm not married to Acronis for this job so I would use any disk cloning tool that makes a sector-for-sector copy. I use Norton Ghost 2003 for making sector-for-sector raw image (forensic) copies of PATA drives; but, these are SATA drives and Ghost 2003 simply sits there like Tarbaby and he don't say nuttin' to no SATA drive.

It appears that there is an error with the other browsers as well. I have searched for solutions for this for several weeks, none of which fit my problem. I uninstalled my clamwin antivirus in favor of Windows Security Essentials, though, most people have fixed this problem by messing with AVG? I don't think I have AVG on my computer?

Internet access via Modem using "Dial Up Connection" to ISP. The dialogue box includes two options (a) "Save Password", and (b) "Connect Automatically". They are always greyed out and can not be selected or activated. As a result I always have to type in the password though I would rather not have to.

What I need to know is (1) why are these options not selectable and how can I get them to activate? and (b) what exactly does "Connect Automatically" do?

thanks.
 

A:How to "Save Password" for "Dial Up Connection"

Do you get the Window logon box when you bootup? If so, do you just cancel it? That will ususlly eleminate password control. One simple thing you can try is go to Start>Find Files and Folders and do a search for *.pwl. If you find a file with a anyname.pwl, right click on it and rename it to old.pwl. Reboot and if you get the Windows logon, enter a name or number dont set a password. Let us know if it works or not.

I don't know if this is the right place, but I seriously need some help.
I've got an IP that changes every time my "gateway" (router) is reset.

First of all, I'm using windows 7 ultimate 32 bit. AND IIS. (Internet information services) or something like that..

It's really annoying, because my IP is also a website.

People can access the IP as a site, but when it changes, the old one goes off.
It gets really frustrating! I've tried manually entering it on the gateway, but my gateway just stops working and I have no internet access.

I tried entering it manually on Windows, but it will disable my internet but allow me to access the site from the old IP.

So I have to keep it on "Obtain an IP address automatically"

Please help! I've been on this all day.

Your router gets its "outside" IP from the ISP so that you cant set manually. I assume the website is using that one, correct?

The inside IP's can be manually set but that will only work from the internal lan. Is that what you want to do?

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
