I know that this type of post has occurred before - and I have tried (nearly) everything that previous people have suggested, but I can not get it to work.
I am running XP SP2 on my hp laptop. In the background I have Spybot S&D, Norton Antivirus, and Norton Personal Firewall. I access the internet through a WLAN. The other computer on the WLAN does not have this problem.
My computer won't access certain sites. I have noticed (as other have in the past) that these sites tend to involve a heightened sense of security (Microsoft, Symantec, other anti-virus sites). I have tried a number of things to solve this:
- I checked that PCT 1.0 and TLS 1.0 are unselected under Internet Options
- I have done the regsvr32 thing and made sure a whole host of drivers were present and correct
- I have compared my HijackThis log with other people's and found that nothing matches
- I have made myself a cup of coffee, restarted the computer, and seen what happens
The problem happens on both IE and Firefox, and is not a problem with either spybot or Norton Anything (I have disabled both at times to see what would happen).
Any help would be gratefully received.
