I recently did some registry cleaning with CCleaner and somehow I think this got IE8 screwed up.

It can only access HTTPS secure sites and not HTTP sites - hangs forever.

I have tried resetting the options, checking for LAN, removing XP SP3 and IE8 and reinstalling both, many other suggestions, etc. to no avail.

It is interesting in that I also have Chrome and Firefox and both work fine with secure and non-secure sites so I think somehow is it is a Security or a missing file or setting for IE8.

Any suggestions as this has been going on for weeks - thanks in advance
