can access only secure sites

I can access only secure sites with ie7 (https) and am unable to solve this
problem. I didn't change any settings myself. The problem started when I
had ie7 running at the same time as a vpn connection. I have to use netscape
to access this discussion group. I would be very grateful if anyone could
help.

Philip.

Re: can access only secure sites

Windows version?

=> Does this behavior persist if you start IE7 in No Add-ons mode? To start
IE7 in No Add-ons mode:

1. Right-click on the blue IE desktop icon and select Start without Add-ons;

2. Start > (All) Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer
(No add-ons).

Re: can access only secure sites

Thanks for your promt response. The problem persists if IE7 is started in
No Add-ons mode and resetting the settings does not help. The program is
running under windows XP Profesional version 2002, service pack 2.

Best wishes,

Philip.

Are you using a Download manager? Try removing it.

Re: can access only secure sites

Thanks to all who replied. The problem persists when I turn the firewall on
my pc off and delete the Adobe download manager. I emphasise that the problem
appeared when I went through the firewall of the place where I work when I
established a VPN connection. The problem remained when I disconnected the
VPN client. Somehow the settings pertaining to IE7 changed when I
established the VPN connection and these settings still remain. The support
group where I work are unable to be of assistance in this matter. All the
PCs at work running windows use IE6 as their internet browser.

Philip.

Re: can access only secure sites

Information helpful and exhaustive but problem still persists. I have new
information that may be helpful. I am able to use IE7 without difficulty
when signed in on the same computer as a different user, with the same
priveleges. The problem must lie in my local settings. It is curious
therefore that the problem is not resolved by resetting the internet settings
or the host of other remedies that I have tried.

Regards,

Philip.

Re: can access only secure sites

If you uninstall (a) IE7 (which automatically returns you to IE6), (b) all
toolbars and (c) all third-party Windows Themes (including Window Blinds)
and don't reinstall IE7, does this behavior persist?
