Can't access any secure site with Internet Explorer 6.0

Q: Can't access any secure site with Internet Explorer 6.0

Please help. I cannot access any web site that requires a login, which I guess means any secure site. I get the "page cannot be displayed" page, and have tried all of the options they provide at the bottom with no success. Resetting the security level, deleting files and cookies, and ensuring 128-bit security have all failed. Anyone that has an idea, please post, my PC is pretty much useless to me otherwise. Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Can't access any secure site with Internet Explorer 6.0

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.)

I recently started a website, but immediately got "this page cannot be displayed" message while trying to access my control panel. The host advised me to remove ZoneAlarm which I did but with no luck. I can access my control panel from other computers but not mine. I have run spybot and reviewed my IE 6 many times. My host said it may be a registry problem as I have Netscape on my computer and it can't access the site either.
Any thoughts?

Hi All,

I have suddenly lost access to any of my secure sites. For example I can get on to the HMRC site but when I want to log in to pay online VAT I'm blocked. Same for bank accounts etc.

IE diagnostics says ' Windows cannot connect to internet using HTTP, HTTPS or FTP. This probably caused by firewall settings on this computer. Check if firewall settings for this HTTP port (443) and FTP port (21).

Can anyone xplain how a do this in a simple way for a newbie.

Hello. This morning I turned on my computer and curiously couldn't access some websites. I soon realized they were all https connections. For instance I can access http://amazon.com/, but I cannot access https://amazon.com/. The issue persists regardless of the browser I use. My e-mail client also cannot connect to certain accounts. The same goes for Windows Update.

I've searched this entire subforum for similar problems and haven't found anything that fixes the problem. I've flushed my DNS cache, reset windows sockets, synced time and date, checked whether any weird processes were running, and disabled my firewall (I don't use Windows Firewall or MSE).

Hi; Running XP on a Sony PVC-RX770 (3 years old). I can never get to a secure site. Message says to re-set security levels which I have done over and over.

Hello everyone and Merry Christmas!!
I am having an issue with windows 7 Ultimate apparently blocking me from accessing my work related website login page.
I must use IE to view the website. So far, only Combofix remedies the issue but only for a couple of days and a couple of logins, then it's right back to the same old thing. I have 2 log files that I can submit for review. Also an important side note. No matter what browser I try to use, the computer does the same thing. The page is set up to use IE however. I am using Microsoft Security Essentials. The website is as follows....
Once this page loads, I would normally login. My problem is that the computer IE status bar drags and drags and finally a unable to load the page comes up. I can run combofix and everything is great for only a couple of days.
any help would be greatly appreciated.

Now this is a situation that I haven't quite encountered before, so I thank you all in advance for your help and advice! Here's the deal....

1. When my friend attempts to access any secure site (for banking, shopping, etc.) in IE, it keeps saying "unable to display page" or something to that effect. Basically, it is not allowing him to login to any secure areas. He is, however, able to browse other web sites in IE without a problem.

2. When he tries launching Mozilla Firefox, it will not allow him to browse any sites at all.

Other computers on his home network are fine and have no problems accessing any sites regardless of the browser used.

Thanks in advance for reading this posting and offering your suggestions.

I have tried most of the posts on the internet to fix this problem--this is under IE6--"Internet Explorer was not able to open this Internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later." The problem just suddenly appeared. I'm running a Dell Inspiron B130 laptop with Win XP Home, Service Pack 3 installed, 1 gb ram and a 40 gb HDD. Had McAffee Internet Security Suite preinstalled but removed it via REVO Uninstaller and have only Windows firewall enabled and NO anti-virus. I did try downloading with Windows firewall disbaled and still no success. I can navigate to a site like Google Chrome download page but then when I click on the download button, the error message appears. Also can't download Microsoft or Windows updates from either site, although, again, I can get through the "checking" phase. I've run Malwarebytes, A-Squared, and IObit 360 and removed about 13 traces of malware ranging from low risk to high risk, defragged and cleaned the reg, all to no avail. I originally had IE7 installed, read about rolling back to IE6 and doing the typical repair sequences, again to no avail. Supposedly IE8 fixes this, but I can't download it, although I did try the stand-alone installer of 15 MB without checking the "get updates" box. It loaded and installed and shows up as IE8 but still had the same problems. Then did a system restore back to before the IE8 install, rolled back to IE6 again... Read more

I have a laptop that I take to work, and would like to set things up to use my home internet connection from elsewhere. I don't have another computer to function as a server for me at home, so would like to do it so that my router alone provides this access (log into it from the internet anywhere and use my internet as if I am using it from home).

How would I go about doing this? Would it require installing new firmware, or how can I tell my router that I would like to access it like this?

I have a router with remote access capabilities as well as a bridging mode (and I have another older router).

Many thanks!

I normally use the same browser [ Firefox or now Microsoft Edge ] and run the Super Anti Spyware program every few weeks.
The program will usually find 4 or 5 items to be deleted as adware or tracking cookies.
But today, just this one day, I decided to use Internet Explorer 11 and afterwards ran the Super Anti Spyware program and the results were "250 items found" !
Why would that be? Is IE 11 no longer safe to use?


A:Internet Explorer not secure?

I doubt you'll find any reliable source which would say that one browser is more safe than the other.
Maybe, maybe 10 years ago but not now.
Today's computing is simply much m ore dangerous than it was 10 years ago.
You must be super careful.
Do you have a log from Super?

I want to set up security on my network. I want it so only certain computers can access the internet. I only have two computers, one desktop and one laptop, to connect. I have a linksys wireless router that is connected to a cable modem. The only security that i can find is on the router but it only secures wireless access. This is good, but the router just needs to be reset or unplugged and anyone can access the internet again. So what I need is a way to restrict access through both wireless and ethernet and not be able to disable it by just pushing reset.

The problem is the IE6SP1 will allow us to access regular unsecured web sites. The IE6SP1 will not allow us to access websites that are secured. We tried uninstall IE and reinstall with no improvement. NAV shows no virus. SB and ADW show spyware. I tried the ispfix and it did no repairs. The system in question is used in my friends insurance office. The other two systems in the office work fine. The one in question is used as a server as well. I tried to use microsoft updates website and it failed to let the site confirm what updates are needed. The OS systems used are WIN98SE on all his office systems. They are legite OS systems and not bootleg copies. I made sure of this part. The system in question is a generis computer with about 1.6g and ???dual processors?? and a 30g HD. the problem continued until I convinced himto upgrade the comp to WIN XP PRO. After the upgrade the problem was solved i quess because off the upgrade. Due to some of the insurance programs are not compatible with winXP I had to uninstall the winXP upgrade and the system returned to win98se and the IE problem returned. Any suggestions would be helpful.

I called the isp and did a ip release and renw to no help. We even ran new cable and a direct connect to the cable modem and no success. Ran HJT and saw nothing of concern.

I have seen lots of posts from people who cannot load secure sites, but I can only load secure sites. Here is my scenario... I was about to upgrade XP to SP2 so, as per the instructions, I ran Ad-aware and Norton Anti-virus. I removed 5 pieces of "spyware" though they were really only benign looking cookies (eg-Overstock.com). Once I was done I opened IE6.1 to download SP2, but for some reason could not load the Microsoft site (or any other). I opened it in Firefox without a problem. I then downloaded "Windows XP Service Pack 2 Network Installation Package for IT Professionals and Developers" since you can only perform the auto update from IE. SP2 installed without a hitch, but still no explorer. Then I upgraded IE 6.1 to IE 7 Beta 2, but it still has the same issue. I can only load secure sites (https). I have tried changing the security settings, but to no avail. Has anyone seen or heard of this issue? I have been using IE for 11 years and have never had a problem with it that couldn't be resolved by a re-boot. Firefox and Mozilla are working great on secure and unsecured sites, but I ocassionally need IE. Any input would be appreciated,

combination that could be installed to improve security and

Since we have to implement the firewall at the enterprise
level, security and permissions were and are the main issue
over here. After a lot of research, our search ended with a

only need a triple PHD to figure out how to configure Gauntlet
for your needs. Sygate on the other hand is easy to configure
but has very little control over users. Same goes for Gauntlet
with the exception that it provides User authentication
configured for each and every protocol individually which would
make a lot of fuss. Anyway, since both of these have their ups
and down sides, I went on with Wingate v4.2 It does offers NAT,
Firewall at basic level through add on plugins, yet it has the
permission capabilities which would allow to control users.

Just wanted to know if anybody could put his two cents in...
maybe a better solution...

Would appreciate a quick reply... Thanks.

Recently I helped my brother procure a new laptop ? a Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga. Nice machine. He's using it for work (he's a physician) and personal stuff. I've helped him with some configuration tasks, and a member of his work I/T staff has done probably the bulk of whatever configuration it has needed. When doing my bit, I installed Mozilla Firefox, even though his I/T guy had already intalled MS/IE. I installed Firefox really for my own use ? to help me browse the web to find anything he might need for his new laptop; I just wanted to use the browser interface I'm familiar with. I've been using Firefox for some years now, having switched from IE.

Anyway, that's the background. Recently, my brother told me that his I/T guy UNinstalled Firefox because "it has security issues and only MS/IE should be used on his laptop" (that's a rough paraphrase).

I was a bit surprised to hear this since I've been unaware of any noteworthy security issues or concerns with Firefox. On the other hand, I haven't exactly been looking to see if there were/are any. So, I thought I'd ask the experts ? hoping that one or more among them might have and want to share their thoughts on this.

I did try searching this forum for some relevant info, and before coming here, I tried a wider Google search but in both cases didn't really see anything illuminating the answer to my subject question.

Before closing, I should mention that (as one might expect) his new laptop is running Windo... Read more

A:Is Microsoft Internet Explorer more secure than Mozilla Firefox?

A) IE comes with Windows 10 (as does Edge), so the "IT Guy" didn't install it

B) IE is going to be there whether you use another browser or not. Some people consider having an additional browser to be yet another possible attack vector (regardless of it's security record). In other words, If you're stuck with A, then A+B is more insecure than A alone.

C) Edge has proven to be a very secure browser so far, and is just as compliant as other browsers.

D) His work may have security policies about which software can be installed, or should be used. And therefore, you may have inadvertently violated a security policy.

E) Firefox, like all browsers, has had security flaws. Some of them critical. See Security Advisories for Firefox ? Mozilla

I'm not saying that Firefox is any more or less secure than anything else, but regardless it's your brothers computer and he has to use it at his work, so ultimately it's their call what to use.

I came across this site http://www.dogagent.com
On the front page it says "The pages are designed only to work in Internet Explorer 5.0 or later".

Can anyone explain why the site wouldn't work with another browser?

I am using WindowsXP Pro with service pack 1.

The main problem is, I cannot connect to secure web sites like Gmail and hotmail, or download from secure sources like Windows Update or Battle.net [they both send back error messages].

All other websites are accessible.

I've called my ISP and we tried everything they knew. It has to be a problem on my side.

I've done three different virus scans, all with updates that follow the date on which the problems began. I've done several spyware and adware scans, too. Everything's clean.

I did the HiJackThis scan, and this is what I got:

Just started using IE8, and getting the nag on many pages (while I am already on that page) saying IE cannot open this internet site....and if hit the return arrow to go back a page , and then reclick to the new page, it works. Whats up with that ? Am I missing some file or is this just another glitch ?
Didn't happen with IE7, and may just go back to it.

A:internet explorer cannot open the internet site...

Did you try other sites ? That is a quick check to see if the problem is your browser. And it would need to be a site that uses similar setup. So if the page that doesn;'t display has lots of javascript, go to another one that has lots of javascript, etc.

On one of my sites, sometimes one particular page wouldn't display. I had to re-edit it, upload, it works fine now. So it may not be your browser. It could be that site.
