Preferred Solution: Https Not Working

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.)

Not to sure how to bump so I figured i'd just reply to get this at the top. (Don't want the question going unanswered now do we?)

HTTP traffic in IE 7 stops working about five minutes after booting up. This started after the latest Windows Update.

HTTPS and email always works .

The only solution is to reboot the computer. After about five minutes, HTTP stops working again.

I have 2 GB MB of RAM, Windows XP Pro, service pack 3. This happens even when the browser is the only program running.

I have updated and run Ad Aware and Spybot.

I am up to date with AVG and ran a complete system scan. Nothing found.

Hi all,

I hope someone can help me with this irritating frustrating productivity killer.

Basically what happens is that I'm using the browser (Firefox 2 or IE 6, doesn't make any difference) and at some point, sites stop opening - basically the same response as if the net went down - connection error.

Strangely enough, any URL that is in https instead of http, always works. Maybe this can help spot the problem - so I hope.

The only solution usually is to restart the browser and in some extreme cases, I have to reboot the computer.

I have 700+ MB of RAM, and this happens in situations when I have an average amount of open applications, and easily 200 MB of free RAM.

But sometimes, after closing programs that not FF or IE, the browsing also recovers. This makes me wonder if there's anything to do with memory usage. Just a suspicion.

I'm running Avast, Kaspersky Anti-Hacker, Spybot, System Mechanic, Webroot SpySweeper, and in all fronts I seem to be clean from spyware, viruses, etc.

Worth mentioning is that I've had some pretty tough to kill spyware infection last week. Only mixing Webroot+Spybot+Process Explorer have I finally killed the menace. I'm not sure if it's related as I am not sure when the infection entered my machine. Unfortunately I've already forgot the name of the *******... I'm just wondering if even having removed it, damaged could remain...

Windows XP SP3 x32
IE 8
This is a legacy system that I have to keep running.  Suddenly, I cannot reach any secure (HTTPS) web sites.  This is a problem since Windows Update requires IE.  (I have applications running on this system that are still getting updates.)
I can access secure (HTTPS) web sites using Firefox but windows update does not work properly with it.
I have tried clearing the SSL slate, resetting all options to the default.  All add-ons are disabled. 

I though I could uninstall and reinstall it using add/remove programs\windows features but that only removes the shortcuts.
Any suggestions on how to get IE 8 working again with HTTPS would be appreciated.

I de-infected a windows XP system with SP3 and IE7. Once I did that,
http no longer loaded in IE. It does not work in portable firefox
either. I can type in ftp:// ftp address and IE works. Likewise I
can use https:// and the page loads!!!
What is going on:

I tried:
1) Reset ie7 as per MS
2) Removed IE 7
2a) IE6 would not load http either
3) reapplied SP3
4) Repair install win winxp cd.
5) Deleted and re-installed network card

This is where I am now. Still no http://. Since multiple
applications are affected, I do not think it is a browser helper.

Any Idea?

Try restarting the WebClient service. You can access the Services console via either:

b) Typing "services.msc" (minus the quotes, of course) into a Run line.

I am having problems with https sites like gmail. I have tried to access in chrome IE and firefox and all 3 saying its not secure.

Also my time clock will not update its stuck in 2009. I tried the internet time and it says an error connecting to time.microsoft.com

This all started after I pulled the bios battery out.
I tried a system restore and same thing.
I tried turning firewalls on and off and I have deleted all temporary files.
Also forgot that none of the windows updates will work.

I dont think its a virus I did a scan with Avira and nothing comes up. I think its some sort of firewall setting or something like that.

I am running windows 7 home premium.

A:[SOLVED] HTTPS not working on any browser

First thing I suggest, is to go into your BIOS and check the Date and Time there, set it manually inside the BIOS first.

Updating your system using Windows Update should help solve a lot of your problems you've mentioned. So could you explain in further details what you mean by Windows Update will not work?

Why did you remove the battery anyway?

I need help - maybe even to be told to post this elsewhere.

A couple of times each day my PC very suddenly stops being able to download all email except that provided by my ISP (NTL), stops being able to access ftp - stop being able to log on to remote servers vis remote desktop (though those already logged on continue to work) and is no longer able to view https pages, though normal web browsing is not affected.

My PC is on a network via a Netgear router, and recently I have found that only my PC is affected by this phenomenon. It lasts anything from 5 to 25 minutes but usually around 15. It all starts working again as suddenly as it stopped.

Restarting my PC causes the problem to go away - though it will return later on, after no particualr length of time as far as I can determine.

I suspect that something is running in the background which attempts to find updates online, or something of this sort, periodically and whilst it is trying to do so it stops these other processes functioning. Does this seems sensible?

I have had Task Manager open and no new process appears when this happens, nor disappears when it stops. There are no log entries in the application, security or system logs which seem relevant, that I can see.

Security has always been critical to the web, but challenges involved in site migration have inhibited HTTPS adoption for several years. In the interest of a safer web for all, at Google we?ve worked alongside many others across the online ecosystem to better understand and address these challenges, resulting in real change. A web with ubiquitous HTTPS is not the distant future. It?s happening now, with secure browsing becoming standard for users of Chrome.

Today, we?re adding a new section to the HTTPS Report Card in our Transparency Report that includes data about how HTTPS usage has been increasing over time. More than half of pages loaded and two-thirds of total time spent by Chrome desktop users occur via HTTPS, and we expect these metrics to continue their strong upward trajectory.
Percentage of pages loaded over HTTPS in Chrome

As the remainder of the web transitions to HTTPS, we?ll continue working to ensure that migrating to HTTPS is a no-brainer, providing business benefit beyond increased security. HTTPS currently enables the bestperformance the web offers and powerful features that benefit site conversions, including both new features such as service workers for offline support and web push notifications, and existing features such as credit card autofill and the HTML5 geolocation API that are too powerful to be used over non-secure HTTP. As with all major site migrations, there are certain steps webmasters should take to ensure that search ranking tra... Read more

Hello.
I'm running W10 and IE11. Earlier my internet connection went down but now has come back up. There is a noise problem on my line and the disconnection is expected behaviour. But, since the connection came back my browser will only access https capable sites, no http. This is a pain because a lot of my Favourites are http only. As a matter of fact, even some https sites wont download. There are far too many of these instances to be just sites going down etc. Does this sound like a setting has changed somewhere, or maybe could the poor connection be causing an issue, even though everything was working as normal until the system went down for a while, and the noise problem is not new.

I wasn't sure whether to post this in Networking or here, so I did both. I apologize in advance if I should not have done so...


1) Assuming I have my own web server, how difficult is it to set up an https page?

2) Is it possible to set up an https page so that (non-secure) http pages would load in a frame such that the insecure data gets transmitted securely?

The impetus for this is that I when I access certain webpages from work - my personal (web-based) e-mail being a prime example - I *really* don't like the thought that members of our corporate IT department have clear, unencrypted access to my (personal/private) e-mail/data/etc.

I know there are remote access programs that would allow me to tunnel in to my machine at home, but our firewall at work is very restrictive.

There must be some way to do this...

A:Questions about https

I don't believe that you can do what you want.
To setup the HTTPS you need either a certificate issued by an trusted authority, or you can generate one on your webserver and just have to "accept" the security warning everytime, or install it on every machine you want to "trust" the site. As far as encrypting the unsecured data, it stays unsecured unless you use vpn software (very difficult if you have ports blocked on a company firewall) ]

Maybe you could setup some type of remote desktop running on port 80 on your home machine. Then use your machine's browser to access your email. To do this may require software that your company may not allow.


Being one of "those" IT guys: (not to offend, just offer my two cents)

1. I wouldn't have time to even try to capture packets or screen shots of every person that works at my job.

2. Unless they were suspective of doing something (wasting company time, resources) not appropriate, would they even ask that this task be done.

3. Most companies let you know up front that they "can" and "will" go through electronic transmissions, but rarely would do something so drastic.

4. If you don't want people to "see" it, then maybe you could wait to do it at home or an internet cafe (which is far worse than your work!)

What I don't understand, is why your ISP webmail is not https anyway? Most ISP's with webmail use this to prevent giving out login information ... Read more

Hello, I'm new here and I want to apologize for any mistake in my English. It's not my native language. Please guys, be patient with my English and hope you try to understand what I'm talking about.

Well, I have the latest Firefox version and want to know why Firefox always lost the https connection with secure websites? In the latest version (36.0.1) it seems became worse than previous versions. What I'm saying is that websites that use https, in Firefox for some reason it can't stay with the secure navigation always on, because the lock icon became a ! (exclamation) icon and always says the webpage is not encrypted at all.

Other browsers don't do this and always stay with https on. So what's the problem with Firefox? I like this browser but this issue is pissing me of.

A:Question about https

No mistakes, and a good question that I also would like to know, mainly because I hadn't ever checked.
You are aware that many sites only use HTTPS for the secure logon and revert to none secure for the rest of the site.
I will have to check this next time I go to my bank site.

- 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.

Hello,
I come from the Norton community that led me to you about attack of a serious trojan.
Here is a nth case of "HTTPS TidServ" attack that personally I discover being novice in this regard.
I understood that this type of trojan causes serious problems, and belongs to the class of Rootkit, TDSS or TDL3 viruses.
Of course, my system is infected, periodically, Norton indicating attacks,I did a full scan via Norton Internet Security, without result.
I already used Microsoft's Malicious Software Removal Tool, and RegistryBooster-Uniblue to check the system, the first one didn't identify the problem and the second one pointed out problems but I did not try to repair via this program. I did not try any other solution for now.
I wonder what I have to do to eradicate this very serious "nuisance".
Thanks for your help,
Regards,
Thierry

Hello. I posted this in the Avast forum, but I know some of you are gurus in here too so? Just today I started getting "Your Connection Is Not Private attackers might be trying to steal your information when opening Chrome to my homepage Start.me or going to a few different "reputable" websites. Not Secure is in the search field to the left of the URL address. When I remove the check mark from enable HTTPS scanning under Web Shield everything works fine again. At first I thought it may be Zemana AntiLogger, so I shut it down and wasn't running it in real time. Maybe a recent update? I think there was a problem like this a few years ago with Avast HTTPS scanning and Firefox, but it was corrected after an update. Just curious if anyone else has had this happen? I don't like leaving it unchecked. It works OK with the Edge browser, but I don't have Firefox installed. I also disabled the Avast Online Security extension, but it didn't help. Thanks.

Hi, Please help how to block the https prtocals in cisco router??

A:Block Https

I'm not sure about blocking the protocol, but I believe it runs on TCP port 443, which you could block. I'm not so good with networking, though, which is probably where this should be, so I can't say that's a guaranteed fix. May I ask why you want to block it? Blocking that could cause legitimate sites to stop working, and would keep you from using secure logins on any sites you may need people on your network to use, which would make them more vulnerable to password sniffing and such. If you are just looking to block a few sites that use HTTPS, you should probably try to find another fix. Just my $.02.

Generally, I don't 'fix' what I don't understand.

What are the TSG recommendations/thoughts regarding Mozilla's DoH?

Bleeping computer has some negativity about it in an article here:
Google Unveils DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) Plan, Mozilla's Faces Criticism
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/ne...over-https-doh-plan-mozillas-faces-criticism/
Here is the Mozilla blog article discussing coming changes in regards to DoH:
What?s next in making Encrypted DNS-over-HTTPS the Default
https://blog.mozilla.org/futurereleases/2019/09/06/whats-next-in-making-dns-over-https-the-default/

I've never changed my DNS settings. They are handled by my ISP, Spectrum, with no issues I'm aware of.

Is this Mozilla DoH a good thing?
Downsides?
