Greetings...I am a new member with a problem. I am not sure if has been discussed before on this wonderful site which I have just discovered.

The problem: After I installed the SP2 Update for XP Home, I lost the ability to access websites through IE that require a secure access. For example, I can no longer access Yahoo, Hotmail, my bank, or my Frequent Flyer plan account , just to name a few.

I get that annoying "The page Cannot be Displayed" every time.

I have had the help of a computer savvy friend and we ( well mostly he!! ) have worked our way through the Microsoft Support pages ( they actually have a page for the problem ) and been on the phone for couple of hours with my ISP where a very helpful woman has made some suggestions and appears to know of the problem. Nothing has worked as yet, however we are closing in on the Norton software that I have on my computer as perhaps being the culprit in my case.

The computer is a quite new SONY VAIO PCV -V200G.

The Update also disabled my SONY Memory Stick Controller but that I believe is a different issue that I will raise with SONY.

Can anyone suggest other possible causes and/or fixes. Thanks...

After trying Enthusiast's suggestions you might want to try a repair of IE:
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
