I cannot access certain sites, I guess they are secure sites. Examples are ebay, yahoo mail, and my bank's account page. I tried all the seven suggested fixes on your tutorial and all seemed okay except the one that said to run "scf /scannow". Nothing happened. I got a message that said "scf cannot be found"

I believe I have some registry problems as well, don't know if that's related. Help!

I was able to access these about a week ago so I don't know what has happened since.

Have you tried rolling back to before the event with System Restore? Did you install, download or add hardware to your system prior to the outage?

How far in the process of accessing the sites can you get? Do you get any error messages? Have you made any changes to your browser's security settings recently? Which browser are you using?

I have not done a system restore as I don't know how.

I can access the actual main site but when I try to login to the area of the site that requires a password, I cannot. I mean, I get to the screen to enter the password but when I hit enter, I get the "page cannot be found" error.

Tonight, my computer froze up three times during disk check. I had to skip the disk check to even get into the computer.

I browse with IE. I'm on Microsoft XP professional.
