    After i installed SP2 my internet explorer won't let me view certain webpages. For example Windows Update Page says:
    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

    ************
    Repair IE :
    -----------

    Start > Run rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 C:\windows\inf\ie.inf

    In addition, in windows explorer
    go to
    c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc
    find a file named "hosts"
    no extension, not hosts.sam, just "hosts"
    opne in notepad
    and delete any references to those web sites
    then from a prompt type
    ipconfig /flushdns
    then test
