After i installed SP2 my internet explorer won't let me view certain webpages. For example Windows Update Page says:
Windows Update has encountered an error and cannot display the requested page. You may find the following resources helpful in resolving the problem:
And when i check msn mail i get to the log in screen type my username and password and then i get a "page cannot be displayed" message.

I also use FireFox, and i can check msn mail with that.

So i think what is happening is that Internet Explorer is blocking Encrypted pages. I go through settings and change some stuff hoping it will fix it, but it dosn't...

Does anyone have anyclue? I've already ran Hi-Jack This, and Adaware.

Thanks

OPen IE
go to tools --> Internet options --> advanced and restore defaults

Disable firewall and any pop-up blocker

make IE as your default browser

Clear all temp internet files and cookies

Try repairing if you are not able to reinstall
