Re: internet explorer will ONLY load secure sites
According to me this issue is either due to the settings of the inernet explorer , or some firewall settings
for the internet explore , open the internet explorer Go to Tools > internet options > Advance > and click on Reset button , it will reset all settings of your internet explorer .
after that close the internet and open it again , it may resolve your issue .
if didn't then you may check out firewall settigns .
