I have an odd problem that has had me tearing out my hair for days.
I get this error when attempting to access ANY Microsoft download site. I pass the validation check just fine, but then when I click the 'Download' button I simultaneously get two web pages, one a blank with this error, and one that says "Thank you for Downloading"
I consider myself a poweruser, so I'm not completely helpless. I have scanned, scrubbed, buffed and tanned every part of my system in search of a solution. There is a surprising lack of information on this problem on the web. from what I have found, it is related to SSL security perhaps? I have flushed my DNS cache, tried both IE 6.0 and Maxthon browsers, nothing.
Could I have a corrupted certificate? Is it possible to delete all certs and reinstall the default set again? (without having to reinstall Windows). Although, I have read that other people have the same problem and were not able to fix it with a reinstall.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
