I hope this is the right message board to post this to. I'm having trouble accessing password-protected sites on my home computer. I'm running Windows XP, and the problem is happening on both IE and Mozilla. Whenever I try to access sites such as Hotmail, my work e-mail account, my bank account and other similar sites, I get the "The page cannot be displayed" page. In some cases (Hotmail, my bank account), I can access the login page. But the problem occurs when I enter my passwords and hit "submit." The same thing happens with Mozilla. I get the "Unable to Connect" page. I can, however, login to sites such as washingtonpost.com and nytimes.com.

I installed CCleaner yesterday to clean up some lingering files. I also worked with the stuff on the "content" tab of the Internet Options box in Explorer. Otherwise, my computer usage has been the same as it always has been.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
