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

Take a look here: Can't Access Secure Sites

See if that helps.

IE6 is old and may contain security risks. You should either upgrade to IE8, or go to a different browser. http://www.firefox.com/ http://www.google.com/chrome are two good ones.

I thought maybe it was Norton Internet Security so I tried unistalling it, but it won't allow me to do that either. I downloaded Firefox but it won't allow me to access the internet at all. Animal, I tried everything but still having problems. :(

Can you get to a secure website in safemode with networking?
