Posted 14 April 2006 - 02:08 PM

Yesterday everything was working fine. Yesterday evening, I cleared my history in Firefox and in IE (I use them both). I went out at night, and came back at like 2am, and checked my email and everything still worked just fine. I shut off my computer and went to bed.

This morning when I booted it up, I tried to check my hotmail with Firefox and got:

The connection was refused when attempting to contact loginnet.passport.com

I get the same problem when I try to login at mail.yahoo.com.

When I try to load the gmail website, the page won't even load.

When I try to access those sites in IE, I get "the page cannot be displayed."

When one email site goes down, I assume it's just a server error, but when all of them go down at once, I assume I have a virus or something (especially when I talk to other people who can access them).

I searched around online and found some people with similiar problems and it seems that the problem is accessing secure sites. I tried this, and was unable to log into amazon.com or ebay.com, etc. So, I think my problem deals with secure sites.

I think it's very strange that everything was working when I shut down last night, and then this morning it's not. I read the pinned thread on not being able to access secure sites:

1. I verified that I have 128-bit encryption.

2. I deleted temporary Internet files.

3. Adding https://www.hotmail.com to trusted sites didn't do anything.

4. Clearing the SSL State didn't do anything.

5. SSL 2.0 and 3.0 are checked.

6. My time and date settings are correct.

7. I ran "sfc /scannow" and it scanned everything and then the window disappeared. I ran "regsvr32 softpub.dll" and it it succeeded.



I've run SpyBot, Ad-Aware, Panda ActiveScan, and Norton's online scan, and none of them reported any viruses. I almost think I may have accidently changed a setting to prevent access to secure sites. I was going to try a system restore to a few days ago when it was working. If that doesn't work, I was going to uninstall Norton 2003, because some people said that uninstalling an old expired version of Norton fixed their problem, but I'd prefer to do that as a last result.

So if anyone has any other ideas, I'm all open. Here's a HijackThis log if that helps anyone. Thanks.

Well, I feel like a lamer. I shut down my computer, unplugged and restarted my cable modem, started my computer back up, and everything seems to be working now.

Beats me.

Thanks anyway. This is a good site.

I would have edited the title of this thread to say the problem was fixed but it will only let me edit posts, not the title.

Just replying to let us know the problem was fixed was very considerate.
Thanks for the courtesy.
