Use a different browser. There are plenty of free ones out there, like Firefox, Netscape, Opera, etc....

It could be a problem with interent explorer. I would recomend that you try firefox Click here. If that doesnt solve your problem, then try a re-format

Configure the security settings for the Trusted sites zone in Internet Explorer
Note Only add those sites that you trust as a trusted site. If you are not sure about a Web site, do not add the Web site to the Trusted sites list.

1. On the Tools menu in Internet Explorer, click Internet Options, and then click the Security tab.
2. Click Trusted sites, and then click Default Level.
3. Add any SSL-secured (128-Bit) Web sites to the Trusted sites zone. To do this, follow these steps:
a. Click Sites.
b. Type the URL of the site in the Add this Web site to the zone box.
c. Click Add, click OK, and then click Apply.

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
3. At the command prompt, type sfc /scannow, and then press ENTER.
4. Type exit, and then press ENTER.
this will check your protected files

and have you tried creating another account it may be corrupted

Just had the same problem! Do you have Norton? There is a "secure site" setting in the Norton firewall. If you have Norton I can tell you where to look.

This site has a bunch of different things you might try - (it's IE but you could look for similar settings in your Firefox).
http://www.duxcw.com/faq/win/xp/secure.htm
I tried every one of them until I hit on the firewall setting (a month later). Even if you don't have Norton it could still be the firewall.
What I don't understand is how these settings get changed in the first place. I didn't even know it was there.

I have the same problems (in every browser). It's not a problem with the interenet settings, it's not a problem with a firewall (windows firewall or ekstern firewall), it's not a problem with a virus program, and it's not a problem with the connection settings. What else could it be?!
