Hi Hero,

 I am having a great frustration with my gateway laptop, it had Windows XP professional with SP2 and it was working find using IE7 and Firefox. One day suddenly it stop working, and I reboot the computer, then it work again, and then there is when the problem started. Since then it will never allow you to display any HTTP pages anymore, including http://www.Yahoo.com and http://www.google.com.

 You can only browse HTTPS webpages, and if you click a link that is an HTTP it will come with an Error Message: "Internet Explorer cannot dispay the web page"

 I tried reseting all the IE settings, I tried running a utility to re-installed the winsocks and TCP/IP, runing SFC /scannow, then afterwards, I ran SP3 and still I stuck with the same problem, can some one help? I would really and greatly appreciate yoru help on this matter ASAP.

 You will be well rewarded for your effort!!! Thank you!!
