Not sure if this applies, but you may need JAVA to access shtml sites. It is possible that your JAVA Cache has become corrupted. Clear your JAVA Cache via Control Panel - JAVA - JAVA Control Panel - Delete Temporary Internet Files. Be sure you have the most current version of JAVA (1.6.0) and that you have Uninstalled any older versions of JAVA via Control Panel - Add/Remove, because older versions do contain problematic vulnerabilities.

http://java.sun.com/...loads/index.jsp
-----> Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 <---- this is the one you want

Click on Download -- takes you Download page where you will need to "Accept License Agreement"

After Accept License Agreement, select the Windows Offline Installation
Windows Offline Installation, Multi-language jre-6-windows-i586.exe 12.56 MB

Download and Save to a location you will easily remember.

OK. Now you have the most Recent Version downloaded and ready to install......... But first......!!!

Close any/all browsers.
GoTo:
Controll Panel - Add/Remove
Select to remove ALL of the items related to JAVA.
You will have to Remove each one individually via Add/Remove
You may be asked to Reboot to complete the Uninstall procedure between each one.

Once you have your old versions Removed/Uninstalled, you are ready to install the Most Recent Version.
Double-Click on the file you downloaded << jre-6-windows-i586.exe >> to initiate the Offline Installation.

If you are running a Firewall like ZoneAlarm you may receive a request that JAVA Installer wants to connect to the Internet........ Allow ..........

Follow the on-screen prompts to completion and you should be good to go.

JAVA updates at irregular intervals (I would even say "erradic intervals")

The TC Forums has a sub-Forum for Security Program Updates where you will promptly be notified if a newer version becomes available.
A well-respected Member of this Forum >> AplusWebMaster << Keeps us all informed. :)
Here's the link to this update notification:
http://forums.tomcoy...mp;#entry360657

I make sure to check on that update link periodically, as I tend to turn-off auto-updaters like JAVA'a Jushed.exe to conserve machine resources.

I down loaded the java 1.6.0 as instructed and deleted all old java as advised but this did not solve my problem of opening secure sites but i am able to do banking on line still..... looking for other thing I might try. I turned off all secuity to see if that would help me open some of these sites no luck.. probably some little setting that is turned on or off that is causing this problem... any other ideas thanks dontno

Let's see if refreshing your IP configuration helps, and then we'll flush out any old/possibly corrupt DNS GoTo: Start - Run - (type)ipconfig /releaseall Next: Start - Run - (type)ipconfig /renew Next: Start - Run - (type)ipconfig /flushdns Note: I browsed for your www.servicecanada.gc.ca site and gained access with no problem, so it is not the Site itself. Hopefully the above instructions will help freshen up your system. The instructions are "safe" and using them is "common practice" when experiencing problems with site access. Best Regards

Re-Reading your posts, it appears that your machine may be connected to the Internet via Router? What Brand and Model Number? If it is a combo DSLModem/Router - what brand and model number (for instance 2wire, or Belkin?) Are other machines on your same network able to connect to the sites that your own machine is having trouble with. I am not familiar with "adware se aliant antivirus". Carefully inspect the settings for that application to see if their are any references to your desired/blocked sites. What Firewall are you using? Do all the machines have the same AntiVirus and Firewall applications installed? How many machines are in your Network? Is the Network setup and Managed by IT professional? If you, or someone else locally, set up the Router, do you have the Router Setup CD for reinstallation? Maybe an answer to one of the above will give us a clue.

I may have "overlooked" and therefore "overcomplicated" your solution here. The most "common" source of difficulty with browser access to specific sites relates to files in Browser Cache. As you browse the internet, your browser "saves" various URL addresses in Temporary Internet Files and Browsing History. That's a "good thing" usually, because when you regularly access the same sites that you have used on previous days, the address "resolves" quicker, resulting in smoother/quicker browsing and access to your preferred sites. However, a site address can change subtly, and the website "content" can change, sometimes resulting in a conflict when your machine's browser "looks up an address", finds that it has browsed there before, and attempts to connect to the site "exactly" as it did before. If the site address or the website content has changed, a "conflict" may result, preventing your access to the site address (URL) because it no longer exists in the form that your machine's browser has recorded from a previous visit. ________ Try cleaning the Cache and see if that solves your problem. Here's how to clear your cache with Internet Explorer 7.0 browsers: Launch your Internet Explorer browser. 1. Click on the Tools menu at the top of the browser. 2. Click on Internet Options from the drop-down menu. 3. Click on the Delete Button ... in the Browsing History section. 4. Click on the Delete Files Button... in the Temporary Internet Files section. 5. Click the Close Button ... on the Delete Browsing History screen. 6. Click OK ... on the Internet Options screen. 7. Close all browser windows , and restart Internet Explorer. Best Regards

Hi dontno, Run a HiJackThis and Post the Log over in the Malware Removal Forum. I am not suspecting that you are infected, just wanting to gather a little more information about what browser helper objects (for instance, ie toolbars) might be in play here. Note: I am not a qualified malware removal expert, and will not be providing malware removal advise based on your HJT. (though a Malware Removal Expert will look in on your log, and may provide some clues) Best Regards
