Internet Explorer

All of a sudden I can't view/open any secure page (https).

I have Windows 2000 SP4 and IE version 6 SP1.  Today is the 9th... it worked on the 8th.  Using Netscape I can browse to these pages.

For all general purposes nothing has changed.  I word it like this because "something" must have.  I'm a seasoned IT guy so I think we can rule out newbie issues like downloading everything that comes across my screen, etc as being the issue.

Thanks, Sheldon

May be javascript is disabled

enable it

In IE go to Tools  --> Internet Options  --> Security

 In there you can enable/disable Javascript and/or Java

Check your proxy settings and be sure to disable if you're not using a proxy server.

MSIE, Tools » Internet Options » Connections » Lan Settings

Cheers!
