Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-NS240E/W Notebook ?

Cannot access secure websites PLEASE HELP!!

\015 I have tried everything!! I am at work and I am trying to log onto my schools website to take a final exam and I am not able to access Secure websites! I have called my schools tech support and they can't help, i called Sony Vaio tech support and they can't help. I have tried all of their suggestions and nothing works! Has anyone ever had this problem before and been able to solve it? I am desperate for any new suggestions! Things I've tried include: restarting the computer, reinstalling IE, using another browser, disabling my firewall using the command prompt, doing system restore, NOTHING seems to work though :(\015

Answers :

Are you required to access trhough a border manager? If so, most are not configured to work using HTTPS: Simply go to Google or another site to get through the border manager and the HTTPS: should work.
First, make sure you have some antivirus software installed. Next, download and run these 3 excellent free products:
malwarebytes antimalware
superantispyware
asquared free

Also, if you are using IE8, uninstall it immediately. I have seen it block secure sites on many pc's even with IE security settings set to minimum. Try Firefox instead, or IE7.

Run full scans with all three and remove whatever is detected.
Go through your add/remove programs, and get rid of any unnecessary items, especially toolbars,google updater, any 'web search'-type items
I'm thinking that removing IE8 and the malware scans should get you happy.

Hope this helps!
