Secure sites: Can't log in...

Posted on 2004-08-18
Last Modified: 2013-12-28
Platform: Windows 98 SE (Win9x 4.10.2222A)
MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP1 (6.00.2800.1106)

Can't log in to hotmail and other online email sites (receive "This page cannot be displayed).
Have followed the recommended suggestions listed in other Qs here, but nothing seems to be working.
Have cleaned spyware (not much to speak of) off the system and still no luck.
Have also re-registered three of the DLLs recommended in another thread.
Anybody else have any suggestions?

Hmm, are you behind a firewall that could be blocking port 443?

I don't know what's different, but it 'mysteriously' started working again... :( I hate that )

It's my brothers PC - on a dlink network, with one working, so I knew it wasn't a blocked 443 and IE is coming up at 128 not 0-bit...
Thanx anyway guys...I'll split for your contributions.
