    Ok heres my problem.

    Using IE7 (damn its black heart) I cannot get it to log on to any https sites. Hotmail (ironic isnt it), my online banking, etc. The error I get says IE cannot connect to the site and the most likely problem is I am not connected to the internet.

    As you might imagine, I am connected to the internet and Firefox can log on to secure sites just fine. I made sure the site wasnt blocked even though I havent blocked any. Im using Windows firewall and nothing is blocked through that. Also, all three ssl tsl options are checked in the internet options menu advanced tab.

    I also cannont log on to my Itunes store account or Napster account. Both of the programs work fine, I just cant log in. I think the two problems are related.

    Any ideas?

    ETA Im using Windows Vista Ultimate x64 as well.

    It sounds as if, the culprit is the IE 7 program. I have had issues with IE7 for months now, but mine was with a firewall security network card settings.

    FireFox can access the sites because it is using different code, different Browser Ect....

    I am sure if you look in the setting on IE7, you will find it is blocking it for a reason, look at trusted sites, firewall settings Ect...

    If that does not help, un-install IE7 and go back with IE6 and see if the problem is resolved.

    You know how it is with Microsoft, they will have bugs for years. I refuse to upgrade to Vista for another year at least, to many issues with the system.

    Hope this helps.

    Use Firefox. That will solve all of your problems.
