Cannot Log On To Secure Web Sites

Q: Cannot Log On To Secure Web Sites

I recently had a problem with error messages coming up every time I turned on my computer. I was instructed to follow a few steps which did correct that problem. However, now I can't log on to secure web sites!! Every time I try I get the following message:

Action canceled
Internet Explorer was unable to link to the Web page you requested. The page might be temporarily unavailable.


I also am unable to connect to MSN messenger. Can anyone help me?

Preferred Solution: Cannot Log On To Secure Web Sites

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.)

Getting crossed out red x in https . states site may be using outdated encryption. am I being hacked or do the sites need to update thier security. I know it posses a threat or not secure but it is happening on real well known sites. it also happens on all computers in the house but I'm pretty sure only with google chrome.

A:secure sites not secure in chrome.

Hi Adams369 If you are using Google Chrome 42, this is normal. Starting in version 42, Google Chrome starts tagging as "insecure" websites that uses SHA-1 algorithm encryption for their certificates, in order to move them to a more secure one since SHA-1 is old and deprecated (less secure). If you want, I created a thread on that yesterday where I show how to get these certificates information on a website, so you can verify yourself. Also, would you mind posting which websites are having this insecure connection so I can test them for my troubleshooting?Google Chrome 42 vs SSL CertificatesThank you

dont worry, I know the difference but I have an unconventional question. i am currently having a problem with my firewalls and i know that i can bypass the firewalls on secure sites. problem is, not all sites are secure. i dont want to look at porn or anything, i just want to get onto facebook, etc. so, is it possible to access an unsecured site securely? or am i just plain crazy?

A:Unsecure sites/secure sites

I know what you mean about facebook- I grimace every time I have to log onto it and look at the address bar to see that it's not even using SSL... pretty pathetic.

The only way I've found to establish a connection that's tamper-resistant to packet sniffing and other garbage is to set up a VPN server on a trusted computer at home, and just connect to that whenever you're away.

The problem you'll probably face with this, though, is that you need to install a VPN client on the machine you plan on using, so if this computer is a university, school, or work computer, it might be too limited to do this.

I installed AOL 9.0 last week. It ran for about 5 days without a problem. 3 days ago (I dont think anything has changed in that time) I started no being able to access any secure sites like my E-banking and I cant log on to MSN. I have tried several 'remedies' given to me by AOL live help. None of them work.
They are:
securefix, level of cookies , level of internet security, deleting temporary files,making sure the browser supports 128-bit encryption (it does), parental controls.
Other things that are happening:
cant access some sites because it says activeX is not enabled for that page,
can't start the AOL computer check up because it says I have to be logged onto Windows as an administrator (which I was)

Could these things be linked?
My computer is fairly new(Oct 2003) and I have Windows XP home.
This is the first major problem I have had....and no one seems able to help...I have tried several help message boards.

Hello all,

I have somewhat of a problem when trying to access any secure type link when I get on some web sites. One such site is my online banking page, I am able to log on and check my account, navigate to most of the link pages with the exception of my entire "E Bill/Payee" relative to scheduling a payment or adding a payee to the account.

I am using Window XP Home E. SP 1 with IE 6.0 on a fast DSL connection. I have tried everything I can think of including lowering my various security settings to the bare minimum with always the same results.

"The page cannot be displayed etc"and the tag line is "Cannot find server or DNS Error Internet Explorer". I believe this is referred to as error #404 ( I however choose to call it something unprintable)

I was hand carried for 2 hrs. through multiple fix's by the Bank site tech. rep. and the bottom line was to install a patch (Q818529) from MS and to allow 1st. and 3rd. party cookies etc. all to no avail.

I checked my encryption to verify 128 bit and it is. I re-registered 9 .dll files I use Window Washer to keep temp IE cookies, clear history files clean. I also renamed my \system32 host file and deleted it.

I also use Ad Aware, SpyBot and my registered Norton works, which according to them the system is clean with no virus or parasites. In addition I use Zone Alarm for a firewall. All of these security programs are current.

Whenever I try to access secure pages with IE6, I get the dreaded DNS sever/ cannot find page error. I have tried everything short of taking off IE and reinstalling. Actually I was having this problem before I upgraded to IE6. I circumvented it by using Netscape. I have reset everything I know to reset to default settings. I have even gone through and matched settings with another computer that is able to access secure sites. I'm baffled!!

Ok I read the post from the day before with the same problem I have looked at the about IE from the help button and it says I have a cipher strength of 0-bit. I have downloaded the latest security patch from MS and that still didn't fix anything. I have also looked for the HOST file on my computer and don't have one.

A:secure sites


Have you tried adding the secured sites to your trusted zones in IE properties?

Also, would be helpful knowing what AOL have advised you to try so far such as clearing cookies, temp files, resetting web settings, restoring defaults in advanced, checking SSL options in advanced options, trying a different proxy etc etc.

Also, what error messages do you receive in IE when you try to load a secure page?

And finally, may be worth a go trying with Firefox browser...it's free, very secure and marginally faster than IE. Sometimes if things work ok with one browser and not another, you can rule out problems with the ISP or server etc :-)

I tried to DL a digital photo editing program called Gimp and my computer blocked the action. I was told that it is probably do to my AV program. I wonder if by disabling my AV for a short time I can get the DL. Unfortunately, I don't know how to determine if the site is secure or not. Is there a way to tell?

Also, I am confusd as to what "Mirror" sites are. I am asked to choose one of many from which to DL. It looks as though these are located all over the world. How can you tell which sites are safe?

A:Secure Sites?

What site did you try to download GIMP from?This is the site you should be using:GIMPAlways try to download programs from the developers site.That's the best way to ensure there will be minimal problems, if it's a safe site, which this one is.You'll need to download two programs for Windows in order to use the GIMP: the GIMP and the GTK runtime environment, which is available for download on the same site. The program won't work without it. Also, if you speak a language other than English, you can select it when you install GTK.Mirror sites, are sites other than the developer's site, where their programs are hosted for downloading.It helps to relieve the bandwidth drain on the site, for developer's of popular programs, or sites that have limited bandwidth.

Is there any reason why IE 7 will only display secure https sites suddenly? I thought it was all web sites until I just happened to try a secure one today.

Its part of general problem in which a piece of software which connects to the internet automatically doesn't connect to get the data anymore. Mozilla Firefox browses just fine, Outlook gets my e-mail.

Yesterday I was having problems getting my DSL connection to work so I reset the router/modem several times and also tried connecting via Bluetooth to my cell phone. I don't know why this would have changed anything.

Any ideas?

A:Secure sites only?

open a command prompt and type netsh winsock reset and hit return see if it helps

and make sure your security isnt set too high in internet options/security set it to medium high.

I have an IBM Thinkpad with XP, and the past 2 days I have been unable to get into any site that requires log-on ID. (I'm on line now with a 2nd, older computer.) For instance, with Bank of America the home page comes up, but the page is different than normal, including missing a button to "log in". Another bank website I use comes up with the name at the top, but the rest of the page is completely blank. Every site has variations, and none of them allow me to go into the "secured" part of the website. i have reloaded Internet Explorer. I also went to "restore", and that window is completely blank...I'm using Avast. - I uninstalled it, but that wasn't the problem. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I have a Toshiba laptop with XP pro and am having problems accessing secure websites, all other sites seem to be OK.
The connection is via a wireless connection to a broadband router. Norton Internet Security was installed but had a problem and was removed, and now it will not install again but throws up an error message half way through installing..
I have checked all the settings in IE6 and they all seem to be Ok, I have a suspicion that there may be a virus problem because of the problems with NIS. I almost seems like the secure sites are being blocked but I have checked for evidence of NIS or the firewall in windows but nothing showing.
So if any of you guys have any suggestions I am all ears.

Several weeks ago, I called the Dell help line because my system was so slow. They had me make a few changes in safe mode (I cannot remember what they were) and things seemed to be moving along much faster. Shorty after, I found that I could not log on to any secure site, like my work email, hotmail, etc. I get the error message" this page cannot be displayed" When I click on detect internet settings, nothing happens. Now Dell wants to charge me for help, siting it as a software issue with Internet Explorer. My ISP tech-line person thinks a file may have been deleted or corrupted. Anyone have any answers?
many thanks, I'm grateful for any help and suggestions.

Start by giving us some system information by posting a HijackThis Scanlog. Get HijackThis from the site below, unzip it to a permanent folder of its own, then select Scan and save the Scanlog. Copy/paste the Scanlog here:


Also go through this MS article on troubleshooting Secure sites. Its primarily for later Windows versions which I assume you have.


If you use System Restore to correct this problem, give us another Scanlog of the system following the Restore since you will likely restore old problems as well.

Win XP Media Center SP2
IE 6 SP2
Norton IS 2006

Problem: unable to access at least one https site. Other https sites could be accessed. The desired https site was never accessible from this computer, but was accessible from other computers, at other physical locations.

Only 1 computer at this particular location; high speed; ethernet, directly to the cable modem. No router or other networking device.

I solved the problem by adding the https site to the list of secure sites.

Why did IE fail to access the desired https site, but succeed at other https sites I tried?

Before adding the site to the secure list, I cleared the cache & rebooted.

Same problem when in safe mode with networking.

I hate "why" questions.

Greetings igem,
Your Security Settings may be set too high.Try this....Open Internet Explorer then:
Click>Tools>Internet Options>Security Tab>Default
This will return your security settings to default levels then try those pages you can't get into. You may also have to change the level of Security in your Norton/Symantec. If this does not help....post back here and we'll try again.

It will allow me to browse the internet but it wont let me on anything that requires me to sign in, such as my emails, bank accounts, or social networks like Facebook. I have tried everything, I ran Malawarebytes but when I tried to delete it encountered a problem. I found a forum that was talking about a similar situation and someone suggested MouseMatrix which it allowed me to get on those sites through that? It's like something is blocking me from getting on theses sites. I have tried everything, deleting history, lowering the security settings, SSL, I just don't understand what could be wrong. I also downloaded Firefox but it says I don't have a connection to the internet?I have about gave up and was going to take it to get it repaired?

I use a HughesNet HN7000S satellite system on Windows XP SP-3. All is well -- except that browsing to secures sites is paralyzingly slow. I mean, it takes MINUTES to do ANYTHING at an https site, so things like shopping are impossible. The HughesNet support team has advised me to do the following things, none of which helped:
Set https proxy (done)
Turn off anti-virus (no effect)
Set IE secure sites to LOW security setting (no effect)
Set DNS servers to special settings (no effect)

Has anybody ever found a way to make browsing to secure sites via HughesNet even reasonably fast? Right now, it's faster to dial-up, or even to walk to the sites in question.

Yesterday I was no longer able to get my mail. I get the message "Server can't be found." As I said, the other computers on the network can get mail and function OK. Hope someone out there can give us some ideas.

I use Internet explorer to browse the net. I can access 99% of websites fine.

Does anyone know why this has started occuring? I changed IE settings back to default and still the same

PLease help!!!

A:Cant login to secure sites

The first thing I would check is your 128-bit cipher strength in Internet Explorer. To do that, click on help, about Internet Explorer (while it is open) and see if it says cipher strength 128-bit. It it says 0-bit or anything other than 128 that's what's causing your problem. Try that and post back; also what OS are you using and what version of IE?

If that't the problem the fix depends on your OS and version of IE.

Hi all. My neighbor can contact any site but a secure one. Once logging into a secure site the page is directed to "This page could not be displayed" From Internet Properties, everything looks okay.
They are using Comcast cable through a Linksys router. The other computer on the network can not contact a secure site either.
Front Event Viewer, I see that IPSEC is down. I know what IPSEC is, but not how to troubleshoot.
Event Viewer/ Security;

IPSec Services: IPSec Services failed to get the complete list of network interfaces on the machine. This can be a potential security hazard to the machine since some of the network interfaces may not get the protection as desired by the applied IPSec filters. Please run IPSec monitor snap-in to further diagnose the problem.

Have Microsoft got a fix for this yet? Any time I've tackled this I've ended up doing a Windows Repair to sort it.

Vista Home Premium cannot access https sites with IE but can with Firefox, so it isn't a firewall port problem.

I can't get into secure sites for some reason. I've changed my security settings and turned off the firewall but that didn't sort it!!

It's particularly annoying as I have to use a different PC to get into Hotmail.

Has anyone come across this before?

Maybe this is only happening to me, but I will pass along some information just in case.

I was having problems downloading my bank statements (.pdf format) from my banking website. I would click to view the statement, and address bar and progress bar seemed to behave normally, but no statement ever showed up in the window. After making some changes to the security settings, I could finally see the statements, but clicking on the Adobe Reader 9 button seemed to do nothing .

I have now found that the files were being stored on my computer, whether or not I used the save button in Reader 9, in a location that is very hard to find which is noted below. Why the statements never became visible in the window, I don't know but maybe it is related to the strange Adobe window that keeps poping up giving no information.

Why I was never given a SAVE AS option to move the files to a folder of my choosing, I also don't know.

C:\Users\YourUser\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Low\Content.IE5\

A:PDF Statements from Secure Sites
