This KB should help:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;301429&Product=msxml 

If not, then I'll bet a proxy has been recently installed, or configured.  There is a proxy configuration utility that should help.  It's called proxycfg.exe, and should be somewhere on your system already.  If not, you can get it from MSDN.  

But I think your error indicates that IIS could not provide a client certificate for the ServerXMLHTTP object's request.  You can configure MSXML to use a different certificate, as well.
