    Hi guys, Wondering if someone can help.

    Recently i have been struggling to access my hotmail account, e.g when i got to www.hotmail.com it says the page cannot be found. I thought this problem was specific for this site but on further investigation, it looks like i get the same message for all https:// sites via Internet explorer version 7.

    I have done all a couple of the usual things to try and solve this problem i.e:

    Deleted all temp internet files / cookies
    Enabled all SSL and TLS settings on the secuirty tab
    checked the cipher strength is 128 bit
    Cleared the SSL state
    Diasabled all firewalls inc windows

    I can access all other sites (http://) with no problem. I also have a laptop on the same network that has no problems accessing https://.

    Can anyone help?
