XP - sp3 (Updated to sp3 recently to try resolve with update)
IE6 - sp1 (cannot upgrade beyond IE6 due to applications not compatible with
newer versions)

Problem is easy explained in article 883740
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883740

Have followed above article with no success, popup blocker is off, firewall
is off, IE security setting enable to display mixed content

Happens when logging into

If you select YES after encountering the "Do you wish to continue?" prompt,
is everything OK anyway?

If you do not log-in and continue to
https://www.learninggrids.com/us/WelcomePage.aspx, do you get the same
prompt? ...is everything OK anyway?

If the behavior is being caused by what's described in KB883740 (and such
may not be the case), it should have been addressed after you'd installed
WinXP SP3 *and then* made sure all post-SP3 security updates were installed.
Is the computer currently fully-patched at Windows Update? (Do NOT install
IE8!)

In Windows Explorer, navigate to and right-click on
C:\Windows\System32\WININET.DLL <=this file | select the Version tab: What
version is displayed here?

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
What third-party firewall (if any)? Were any of these applications running
in the background when you installed WinXP SP3?

Has a Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on this machine
(e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought it)?

> WININET.DLL version - 6.0.2900.5803


The computer is fully-patched (at least as far as IE6 is concerned).

Try the following and see if the behavior continues:

1. IE Tools | Internet Options | Advanced | Browsing | Enable third-party
browser extensions <=unchecked/disable this option.

2. Close all IE windows & reboot for good measure.

3. Confirm that the option in #1 is still unchecked then test.

4. Re-enable the option in #1, close all IE windows & reboot, then test
again.

Let's try a Reset...

HOW TO Reset Internet Explorer (IE6)
====================
Note: The following will delete all cookies. To save them beforehand: IE
File | Import and Export | Export Cookies | save the file in an appropriate
location. To import the backup afterwards: IE File | Import and Export |
Import Cookies | point the wizard to the saved file.

----------------------------------------
1. After closing all IE windows, click Start, Run, type: “inetcpl.cpl”
(without quotation marks) and press Enter.
2. Select the General tab, and in the Temporary Internet files window, click
"Delete Cookies", and click OK.
3. In the same tab click Delete Files, check the "Delete all offline
contents" box and click OK.
4. Click the Programs tab, and click "Reset Web Settings".
5. Click the Advanced tab, and click "Restore Defaults".
6. Under the Advanced tab, uncheck "Enable third-party browser extensions
(requires restart)".
7. Click OK.
8. Reboot.

1. Start | Run | (type) WINVER | [OK]

Write down the complete, second line of text in the resulting window then
type it into a reply to this post.

2a. Are you running Trend Micro OfficeScan 8.x Corporate Edition,
Client-Server, or...? Is it v8.7 or lower?

2b. Were all Trend Micro Office Scan components (e.g., anti-virus;
anti-spyware; firewall, depending on the Office Scan edition) fully disabled
and was the Windows Firewall enabled prior to installing SP3?

2c. Trend Micro Office Scan V8.0 is pretty dated (V10 is the current
version). Have you (or has your company) purchased it? If so, when does
the subscription expire? Or is it a cracked/torrent-based install?

Hi, sorry for later reply

ok, winver:
V5.1 (Build 2600.xpsp.090413-2111 : Service pack 3)

Trend:
Trend Micro OfficeScan Client 8.0 Client-Server edition

Windows firewall is always set to off - Trend was still running
Trend was purchased by company and dont know exact date of expiry.

Other network guys have suggested it is a redirect loop that may have some
thing to do with our systems (maybe). it occurs in IE, Firefox and opera web
browsers

Hi, sorry for delayed reply

Winver:
V5.1 (Build 2600.xpsp.080413-2111 : Service Pack 3)

Trend:
Trend Micro OfficeScan 8.0 Server client edition

Trend was still running upon install of SP3, Windows firewall set off
Trend was purchased by company but unfortunatly dont know expiry date.

Another engineer has found it is not just IE but Opera and Firefox too, also
they think its a redirection loop, this may be something to do with the way
our PC are setup
