Q: Help..Cannot open https:

I am running XP home. I had sp 2 but thought that was the problem and uninstalled it. I am running ZoneAlarm, I also use both FF and IE 6. On IE I get the page cannot be displayed. And on FF I get Connection Refused. I have reset my crypto settings, I have done the Microsoft fix for not being able to open secure pages, I have done everything I can find. Please help! I can open regular pages, but nothing that needs a log in. My settings on IE and FF are configd per the specs... please help! Thanks

I have a computer on a domained network, running Windows 7 Pro, IE 11.  When I try to open HTTPS sites, it says to check the web address.  I can log onto the domain on the same computer as the administrator and the same HTTPS sites open correctly.  I thought it may be an issue with the user profile so I unjoined the domain, rejoined the domain, rebuilt the user profile, and same thing.  I removed AV and turned off firewall to see if this made any difference, it didn't.  Any ideas as to what could be causing this?

A:IE 11 won't open HTTPS sites

Check the time and date on the computer in question. Try using compatibility mode in IE for those websites.

Thank you.

A:Can't open https sites with win xp a ie8

I would suggest using a different web browser such as Firefox or Chrome. Many sites don't work well with XP and older versions of IE. I would also strongly suggest upgrading to a supported operating system.

Some do, some don't. Is it the actual site's security setting or my browser settings??

I had a bad redirect virus a week or so ago. Ran all the correct software and got rid of it. I am now having problems with opening links. When I click on a link in my email (I have windows 10) instead of opening them, I get a pop up that says I need a new app to open HTTPS. When I click on the AppStore to find a new app these are the options I get: Loadkit Download Manager, Turn off lights, Sidekick private browser, Webaccess and No trace left behind. I did try a system restore but it still continued to do this. I use Chrome as my main browser and a few days ago noticed that the "do you want to set chrome as your default browser" popped up, I clicked yes and got the same pop up saying I needed a new app to open https/http. I have posted in the Am I infected Forum, went through the steps provided and while the computer is running fine, the problem still exists. I do not know if it is the virus but since the problem started when I got the redirect, I figured it was a good place to start. Is it possible that something important was just deleted? I do not know but any help you all can provide is much appreciated. (Specs: HP15 laptop, touch screen, windows 10)

This is a new one for me. My mom brought her laptop over, complaining that she can't get online. I am able to get any https:// site to open normally, but it immediately gives the "This page cannot be displayed" screen any time I try to go to a http:// address.

Applications that have their own internet access still work. For example her Virus scanner and the Spyware Blaster she has installed are both able to pull updates from the internet. I can also get radio streams through WMP.

The operating system is WindowsXP Home Edition with SP2 and the browser is IE 6.0.2900. I used ipconfig to verify that the connection to my router was being made properly. I can ping the router and other computers on the local net.

I compared her network connection settings with mine and didn't see any obvious differences, but I may have not looked deep enough. Any ideas on what would cause this?


A:Solved: IE can only open https:// sites

What I would do is check the Security settings under Internet properties. Also take a look at the "restricted sites" section. I would guess that the browser security settings are set way too high.

On the Advanced tab, click "restore defaults".

Take a look at the Add-Ons on the Programs tab. Anything suspicious there?

Scan for spyware using the big 3 - Ad-aware, Spybot, Microsoft Antispyware.

Delete cookies, temporary Internet cache, and the history - it's amazing how many problems this fixes.

To get your mom online in the meantime, download Firefox and let her use that. Who knows - she might switch!

why can I not open https://login.microsoftonline.com when I have been using it every day?

Read other answers

I'm currently having trouble opening https://login.microsoftonline.com on a Windows Server 2016 running IE11.1198.14393.0 (Update version: 11.0.42, KB4018271). It displays a limited page with the text "It looks like you're on a slow connection. We've
disabled some images to speed things up."
Some troubleshooting reveals that IE is unable to load a script:
SCRIPT5022: Failed to load external resource ['https://secure.aadcdn.microsoftonline-p.com/ests/2.1.5975.9/content/cdnbundles/jquery.1.11.min.js']
If I try to open this URL/script directly I only get a "This page can?t be displayed" and the developers console shows that dnserror.-htm has been loaded.
I've also tried opening the file using http (not https) which also works. Upon finding that out I tried enabling/disabling different SSL/TLS options. When disabling SSL3.0 and TLS1.0 I get a different response, "Turn on TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2 in
Advanced settings"
All updates have been applied on Windows. I've tried resetting IE both clearing history, cookies, temp files and using the reset button under the Advanced tab. I have also re-installed IE using this command:
dism /online /disable-feature:"Internet-Explorer-Optional-amd64"
Everything works in Chrome by the way. The reason why I don't just stick to Chrome is that I use this server as an admin point and run powershell scripts that are using both my domain admin, and Office365/ExchangeOnline credentials.

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:

I have been using Chrome as my exclusive browsers for a while now, it is synced with my gmail account for two computers (work and home). When I was at work, I used to need to use 'https' to access most websites. Now, I no longer have that work computer. The problem is that all URLs are opening using 'https' instead of 'http' which is greatly affecting the usability. If I go into the URL, remove the 's' and reload, the page reloads with 'https.'

All of this was happening in Chrome, so I assumed it was a Chrome issue for me, most likely stemming from syncing with multiple computers. I uninstalled Chrome and reinstalled, no dice. Same problem. I downloaded Firefox in the meantime, which is now also doing the same thing. Cannot think of why Firefox would have adopted this as well, when I installed I did NOT allow it to copy bookmarks etc from other browsers. Have I somehow made this a default in the computer and/or browsers? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

A:All URLs open as "https" as opposed to "http"

In chrome, click on Tools, then select extensions. You don't have an extension called HTTPS Everywhere installed do you?

Since 12:00am Friday into Saturday, my computer will not open HTTPS websites. I wasn't sure what was going on. I thought the problem was with Facebook. Then I had surfed to Expedia and the same thing happened. Then I thought It was a problem with the HTTPS sites, so I went to Best Buy put an item into a cart and tried to checkout..nope....since it was a secure site, it didn't work. I was thinking spyware or virus. The computer is a Dell XPS One running Windows Vista. It was pre-loaded with Norton Internet Security and it has the Windows firewall. I turned the windows firewall off, turned off Windows Defender. Downloaded Spybot S&D, and upgraded Norton to 2010 and updated all security features and virus definitions.It is also not just with one browser. EVERY Browser. I have Firefox, Explorer, Chrome, and Safari.Sypbot found a bunch of tracking cookies. Norton found more, but no viruses.My brother had me download a file from Kaspersky http://support.kaspersky.com/viruses/solutions?qid=208280684 ,http://support.kaspersky.com/downloads/utils/tdsskiller.exe But that came up negative too.Any help you can provide would be very helpful.Regards,Brian

Problem: I'll turn on my laptop and get on a wireless network. After about 2 - 10 minutes of browsing the web regular websites will no longer open. However, I can still browse websites that are https. Sometimes iTunes will still be able to connect and download stuff. World of Warcraft will also work. But all regular sites will not open in firefox, IE or chrome. The only way to get regular http sites to work again is to do a complete restart of the laptop. Resetting the network adapter has no effect. Running the diagnose and repair will tell me that there is a problem and windows can't fix it, then it'll load the help pane and tell me that I lost my internet connection. Well..... DUH!!!

I think it's something on the laptop that's causing this, because other laptops on the same network are not having these issues.

I've tested this on three wireless networks and one wired network which also did this occasionally.

I'm running Vista SP1.

Any ideas?

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.

Hi everybody

I picked up some nasty malware. AVG was updating and suddenly everything just fell apart.

I can't run any installation programs regardless of the extension or name. I've tried to install Rkill and MalwareBytes with absolutely no luck. It defaults to needing to be unblocked in the properties and no matter what compatibility mode I use it will not run. I get a 1084 error when I try to open the security center. In the taskbar I have an Action Center alert that says 1 Important Message and 3 Total Messages. The Action Center will not open at all. I do not have access to a USB key as I am not home, but I will be Tuesday evening. Any help would be infinitely appreciated.

Other notes I forgot: I'm on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, and I am constantly getting errors that Windows can't load and needs to be repaired. It runs and restarts, sometimes being repaired and other times not.

Thanks a lot

A:Action center won't open, Internel Explorer only browser that will open, no MalwareBytes and RKill will not open

An update.

I've tried running MalwareBytes and RKill from a flash drive which is also not working. Windows also ends up unable to load, the startup repair runs and things work fine. Not long after Windows tries to update and then it becomes unable to load again and the startup repair runs again.

I tried running a registry fix for the .exe problem and I get an error stating that the registry is being used even when no programs are running and I am in safe mode.

Hope this information helps

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.

Q: https?

How do l get my browser type in only the https sites. My roommate thinks if I don't use the https. Then we are going to be hacked, jacked or who knows. Please can someone shed some light on this for me. Thank you


Oh dear, nope, it's not true, https connections are just for passwords, websites come across encrypted in https mode and decrypted when the site gets a handshake from your pc, it's just a more secure way of entering form info and passwords, but to be honest, if your computer isn't secure on the virus front, the https connection is irrelevant.

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

Q: https


I use the Citrix Web Client is connect to work and the comms is over https but quite often the incoming comms stops and so I have to close the client then try the original https URL again and get server timed out. My work nor my ISP how how to solve this.
My modem is a Linksys WAG200G with firmware 1.01.05. My browser and email still works, just seems my HTTPS stops. Any ideas please.


Try clearing your cache, Are you getting interrupts with your internet service? I believe Citrix will complain if your internet drops out while connected. Try running CCleaner, it will clear out all of your internet cache and other junk sitting on your machine.


Also you might want to run spyware scans. Download Windows Defender and Spybot search & destroy.


Hope this helps.

I can't connect to secure sites (https://). It says "The request was rejected because the port it was connecting to is not configured to receive the protocol being sent". So how to connect to such sites ?
OS: Win2000
I am behind a proxy


Make sure your proxy allows connections to port 443.
