I recently got a new computer which runs XP and I can't access secure sites over the net. I've done a search and loads of people apparently have this problem, I've tried so many solutions that have been mentioned - playing about with internet settings, system restore, updating dll files and everything that is mentioned on the microsoft support site and then some and nothing works. A lot of people seem to have this problem associated with norton antivirus which I did install but have since uninstalled and still no access to secure sites. I'm at my wits end and wondered if anyone here could help, because a lot of people don't seem to be able to solve this problem at all from what I've read. This problem occurs with both IE 6 and firefox. I'm running service pack 2 as far as I'm aware which form what I've read could have something to do with the problem? I don't know if the best thing is just to reformat because its a bit drastic and others who have tried that say it did no good! Please, please help me if you can! Surely it can't be unfixable?! I have a hijack this log if thats any help:

Also I am still on dial up at this point, have a program called bitdefender as my antivirus and firewall and also microsoft antispyware is installed. Don't think the problem is my ISP as my sister uses the same one and XP on her computer too and as far as I know hasn't experienced any problems like this.
Thanks in advance if anyone can help!

Well it wouldn't be your probably has something to do with your security settings, or norton...

1.) Tools > Internet Options > Advanced (scroll down) > make sure "Use SSL 2.0" and "Use SSL 3.0" are both checked.

2. ) Use rnav2003.exe to make sure norton is uninstalled.

Thanks I will try the program to make sure norton is uninstalled, I have already checked all security settings and everything like that. I have spent hours trying to fix this and I am still having zero luck!

If you have a bitdefender firewall it's probably best to turn off the windows firewall [which as we all know, is crap anyway] You could try temporarily turning off the other one to establish whether it is preventing you access the sites in question. Same if you have a pop up blocker as these have sometimes been known to do as you describe.
Turn em back on afterwards of course.
