When I bring up an HTTPS page, I get "The page cannot be displayed". I am running -

Microsoft Windows 98 4.10.2222 A
Upgrade using OEM Preinstall Kit /SrcDir=F:\WIN98 /IQ /U:xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
IE 5 5.50.4807.2300


An issues that I think is related is when trying to download IE 6 from the Microsfot site, the down load program returns -

"Setup was unable to download information about available installation sites.

Setup may have been unable tomuse your current proxy server settings...."

I am attahed via a D-Link router to a cable modem.

Everything was working until installed I tried to install a linksys ethernet board and driver. That killed my connection and I had to back it out. Now I have this trouble,

Any ideas?

those errors are usually because you have security settings too high and are refusing cookies

MS update won't work unless you are on medium security or lower and accept all cookies

or you have a firewall blocking the sites
or the router is misconfigured and blocking the sites

The router works for the other computer that is attached to it so I don't think it is the router.

Also,I have IE set to Medium security.

I have Norton Personal Firewall turned off.
I've examined the firewall rules on the router and there doesn't appear to be anything there either.

That happened to mine - I did everything, but nothing worked.But then I dowloaded SPybot, Adaware and a Trojan Hijack and ran them all - found some real unimportant hidden stuff and lo and behold....my IE worked again..Try it....

try connecting direct to the cable modem, if that works, then it's a router problem, if not, then your computer configuration is at fault
