I cannot access google or yahoo or hotmail. When i go to google.com i see the main page but cannot search anything. when i go to hotmail i can see the first page but entering my email info and pressing enter it doesn't load up it keeps on loading same for yahoo but i cannot access yahoo.com at all.
I cannot also access facebook. I am using internet explorer 7 with 128 bit cipher strength. I also use a router but i don't think that a problem because i access all these websites by using my laptop using the WiFi connection. And i just recently uninstalled Norton anti virus 2004 after i discovered this problem.
I run Windows Xp Media Edition with internet Explorer 7 and Firefox 2.

thx in advance for your help

Try this: in IE go to Tools > Internet Options > Advanced, scroll to the bottom & make sure there is a check mark next to Use SSL3 & Use TLS1. Apply > OK your way out for the changes to take effect.

If you can access Yahoo here: http://209.191.93.52/
Then you have a HOSTS file or DNS problem.

Test SSL connection: Click on the link just to see if you get connected to this site. This is a test to see if you can access the secure SSL sites: http://www.microsoft.com/en/us/default.aspx

If you don't get connected try this first: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/41067/cant-access-secure-sites/

If you get connected please post back.

You may try this:

To repair problems with your system:
  • Download Dial-a-fix from djlizard.net
  • Unzip the file and doubleclick Dial-a-fix.exe to start the program.
  • Press double green checkmark - "Check all"- to turn everything on.
  • Press "GO" to start processing all checkmarked items.
  • REBOOT your computer afterwards, important.

Do you have Blue Coat K9 protection installed?
A few ppl have disabled theirs and now everything works again, same for me!

Try it!
