First of all let me say :thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer.

There is a very good "pinned" topic at the very top of this forum titled "Can't Access Secure Sites, Browser Won't Connect". Here is a link for you: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/41067/cant-access-secure-sites/ Try the suggestions in that link and if you still have problems, post back with any and all error messages or problematic URL's

Hi Panadaspot, before you do anything else, turn on the windows firewall straight away. It is a basic of all firewalls however it is still better than nothing. Having no firewall will open you to extreme security issues and high levels of having your computer being ripped to shreads by attackers, so turn it on before you even contemplate browsing the net to resolve your problem.

Let us know if Animals link has helped at all :thumbsup:

thanks for the welcome!!

And how long has it taken me to reply!!

i have tried all the suggested fixes, several times. I still cannot access secure sites. I luckily have a second pc in the house which i use for work, and can also use for sites with secure access.

i still get the the sames message :

[font=Arial Black]The page cannot be displayed
The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings.


Please try the following:

Click the Refresh button, or try again later.

If you typed the page address in the Address bar, make sure that it is spelled correctly.

To check your connection settings, click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options. On the Connections tab, click Settings. The settings should match those provided by your local area network (LAN) administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).
If your Network Administrator has enabled it, Microsoft Windows can examine your network and automatically discover network connection settings.
If you would like Windows to try and discover them,
click Detect Network Settings
Some sites require 128-bit connection security. Click the Help menu and then click About Internet Explorer to determine what strength security you have installed.
If you are trying to reach a secure site, make sure your Security settings can support it. Click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options. On the Advanced tab, scroll to the Security section and check settings for SSL 2.0, SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, PCT 1.0.
Click the Back button to try another link.

Cannot find server or DNS Error
Internet Explorer

have you any further suggestions??

A couple of other things to try:

Check the filter levels on your firewall and AV.

If Win Xp:
Click Start / Run / type in; cmd/ and at the black command screen type in; ipconfig /flushdns
Click Enter.

and/or try:
Start / Run / type in; regsvr32 urlmon.dll
Click OK

Also, see if either of these helps:
