    I have three browsers. Firefox, IE 7, and Google Chrome. Firefox is the main one I use. With all three, I have been getting a very odd error on certain websites. On all three browsers, here is the verbage:

    IE 7:

    "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage."

    Additionally, there is no option to Diagnose Connection Problems.

    Firefox:

    Secure Connection Failed

    An error occurred during a connection to (insert site here).
    SSL peer reports incorrect Message Authentication Code.
    (Error code: ssl_error_bad_mac_alert)


    * The page you are trying to view can not be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
    * Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem. Alternatively, use the command found in the help menu to report this broken site.

    Google Chrome:

    This webpage is not available.

    The webpage at(insert site here) might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.




    More information on this error
    Below is the original error message
    Error 2 (net::ERR_FAILED): Unknown error.


    So far, the scenarios where this happens:

    - ordering a gift card for my sister on Sephora, right after I click the continue button after entering my credit card information.

    - Clicking "submit" when I attempt to pay my Comcast bill online from my checking account.

    - Transitioning to PayPal from most Merchants' online shopping carts.

    ...and a few more I cannot remember at the moment.

    Now, I've tried absolutely everything I can think of. I've run the browsers in safe mode, turned off all firewalls and anti-virus programs, cleared out cookies/cache/history/etc., checked both SSL's in IE7...

    Please help. There has to be a root issue I am missing.

    I am running Windows XP 64-bit Professional SP2 (genuine copy), 2 GB of RAM, GeForce 6600. I've installed all Java updates and such.

    I usually have AdAware and the NVidia Firewall Tray running in the background but like I said I've disabled them to see if they are contributing to the problem.
