Unsecure sites/secure sites

Q: Unsecure sites/secure sites

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?

Preferred Solution: Unsecure sites/secure 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.)

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 am using Mozilla Firefox (on another computer) and can't access any site because "Your connection is not secure". I can't do anything on the internet, because this problem is on Mozilla, IE, and even the steam browser, although steam itself can access the internet, but not browsers, so I can't do anything on the internet. How can I fix this problem?

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 states site may be using outdated encryption.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

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.

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.

Download CWShredder and run it. Click on 'I Agree' button if you agree with it. Click on 'Fix' (it will automatically fix anything it finds for you) and OK. If it asks if you want to delete a certain random file, choose No and post that filename here. Let it finish the scan and then hit Next and Exit.

Download and install Spybot S&D. Run Spybot and click on the 'Search for Updates' button. Install any updates that are available. Next click on the 'Check for Problems' button. Let it run the scan. If it finds something, check all those in RED and hit the Fix Selected Problems button. Exit Spybot. If you keep getting the DSO Exploit entries, even after you updated Windows and fixed them, then download the Spybot DSO Exploit Fix and install it over the current Spybot installation.

Please download Ad-aware SE and install it if you don't have it already. Make sure it's the newest version and check for any updates before running it. Also go here to get the plug-in for fixing VX2 variants. To run this tool, go into Ad-aware->Add-ons and select VX2 Cleaner. Then click Run Tool and OK to start it. If it's clean, it will say Status System Clean. Otherwise, you will have to click on the Clean button to remove the VX2 infection.

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.

A:can't log on to secure sites

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.

I have Windows XP IE6 and my computer won't allow me on secure websites. 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? But, I feel like it may be something simple...I hope so anyways.Edit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Users with limited accts in my home can't reach secure website pages such as the login page for gmail. Anything that requites a login doesn't even display. They get This Page Cannot Be Displayed. The two of us with admin accts CAN reach secure sites with no problem.

I thought maybe posting a HJT log from one of the limited acct users might he helpful. If not, I can also post one from my admin acct.

Hi all. I just wanted to let you know you techs are wonderful!!!

Here's my latest problem. I have Win ME networked with Win 98 using a HUB (yes, I know I need to get a router). I switched to cable internet a couple of months ago. Things were going "ok" until Sat. I cannot login to secure web sites except for my cable ISP and I am constantly getting "Internet explorer has encountered a problem and must shut down". It's driving me nuts!!!!. I went to microsoft and downloaded IE 6 and patches, didn't help. I also cannot scan for Windows updates. I've run the IE6 repair, deleted all temp files and caches.

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

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?

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.

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.

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 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.

Some months ago I receive wonderful help from this site (rootkit infection). One of the suggestions was to install Hostsman and it was OK until it blocked some sites we used a lot (as Meebo and ESPN fantasy). We edited exclusions and that seemed to work for a little time. The sites were blocked again and excluding them in Hostsman did not help at all.
I found a post recommending to add manual deletion of some files after uninstalling Hostsman in the usual way (http://oldforum.abelhadigital.com/ar/t145.htm). but it did not work. Those sites are still blocked. I ran the software the post recommended to clean the registry, but it found thousands of invalid entries and I did not trust it to clean the registry.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Two computers out of about 35 in our company can not access secure web sites. Non secure sites are no problem, but when I try to go to a secure site I get the page can not be displayed message. Ran Adaware and AVG, both clean. Checked Advanced settings in Tools>Internet Options everything looks good. Any suggestions?

A:Can't access secure web sites

did you try setting to defaults in internet options under advanced tab ? ( just to make sure they are all ok. ) Also try an online scan. Try one of the links below. I would suggest panda in this case.

A:problems getting to secure sites

What IE version do you have? If it's 6.0 with SP2, take a look at this site.

Looked around some more and re-registering the DLLs may help sometimes.

Let's try registering Internet Explorer's DLL files. Go to Start->Run and type in command and click OK. Then type in each of the following, hitting the Enter key after each line:

regsvr32 Shdocvw.dll
regsvr32 Shell32.dll
regsvr32 Oleaut32.dll
regsvr32 Actxprxy.dll
regsvr32 Mshtml.dll
regsvr32 Urlmon.dll

I have a desktop computer running Vista. It is about a year old and has never had any issues. Today it will not access secure websites but non-secure sites work fine. I have followed the various instructions that I can find online with no luck. The normal browser is IE7 because some of the work related sites do not play well with Firefox. I downloaded and installed Firefox to verify that it is not an IE7 issue. Both browsers have no luck accessing secure sites.

So far I have:
Verified the encryption level
Deleted all the temp files/cookies
Reset all of the settings and security levels in Internet Explorer
Made sure that all of the SSL and TSL options are checked
Added the secure sites to the Safe List
Cleared the SSL
Verified the computer date is correct
Ran sfc /scannow
Re-registered the DLLs
Restored the computer to 4 different restore points
Verified that port 443 is open

I connected my laptop to the same connection and made sure that it could access the sites with no issue.

I welcome any new suggestions.


A:Can't access secure sites

I created a new profile and tested IE and Firefox and still had no luck with secure sites.

Vista Home Premium cannot access secure sites (https). Further testing shows IE7 Cipher Strength as 0-bits, but needs to be 128 or 256-bits.

How do I fix?

A:Cannot access secure sites

Ummm, my Vista Ultimate has IE 32bit and IE 64bit, and both are 256bit cipher standard:

I checked my parents computer running Vista Home Premium and the 32bit version of IE in there is also 256bit.

Have you tried Internet Explorer - Reset

Also, I would ***highly*** recommend a virus and malware scan of your system.
