HI Ted,

Take the help of the best article from Microsoft on this issue.

HOW TO: Troubleshoot Situations Where You Cannot Complete MSN Sign-up pr Connect to SSL Secured (128-Bit) Web Sites by Using Internet Explorer in Windows XP
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=813444

Definitely follow it step by step

Don't forget to try internet again after each step.
Most probably it resolves with the last 4 steps. They are extremely effective.


All the best

Seems like you have problem with the SSL protocol,
you have a problem to access to secure web site : ( HTTPS )

Goto : Tools ----> Internet Options -----> Advanced

there verify the USE SSL 2.0
                 and USE SSL 3.0  are checked


good luck

Greetings, TedHagstrom!

Check you IE Security settings. With IE open, go to Tools > Options > Security. Make sure the slider is at Medium.

Clean your cache. Delete all temporary internet files and cookies.

There may be programs running in the background interfering with the operation of Internet Explorer. If you have Norton programs running in the background, temporarily turn them off, including anti-virus, win doctor, recycle bin protect, and clean sweep. Does this fix the problem?

Turn off any firewall or ad-blocker.


Best wishes, war1
