    There is no problem browsing websites as long as they are
    not secure. Secure websites fail to open or do not
    accept known good passwords.
    Examples are:
    1. Unable to use Microsoft Windows Update (error #
    0x800B0001) (on page shown after trying to perform update)
    2. Unable to open Microsoft Online Assisted Support
    (page fails to open with standard:
    The page cannot be displayed
    The page you are looking for is currently unavailable.
    The Web site might be experiencing technical
    difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser
    settings.

    Please try the following:

    Click the Refresh button, or try again later.

    If you typed the page address in the Address bar, make
    sure that it is spelled correctly.

    To check your connection settings, click the Tools menu,
    and then click Internet Options. On the Connections tab,
    click Settings. The settings should match those provided
    by your local area network (LAN) administrator or
    Internet service provider (ISP).
    If your Network Administrator has enabled it, Microsoft
    Windows can examine your network and automatically
    discover network connection settings.
    If you would like Windows to try and discover them,
    click Detect Network Settings
    Some sites require 128-bit connection security. Click the
    Help menu and then click About Internet Explorer to
    determine what strength security you have installed.
    If you are trying to reach a secure site, make sure your
    Security settings can support it. Click the Tools menu,
    and then click Internet Options. On the Advanced tab,
    scroll to the Security section and check settings for SSL
    2.0, SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, PCT 1.0.
    Click the Back button to try another link.



    Cannot find server or DNS Error
    Internet Explorer
    "

    Connection is there and other unsecure websites are
    found. Security seems to be the issue. IE6.0, cipher
    strength 128, updates SP1. System is XP SP1.

    Any help is greatly appreciated as I am cutoff from
    Microsoft online help due to security issue.

    HI

    I'm also confused when I'm getting this message:
    Internet Explorer was unable to link to the Web page you requested. The page
    might be temporarily unavailable.

    I can get into a page, but then part of the page gives that message. I
    never used to get that. What's up? I'd think you'd either get in the page
    or not.

    It's very distracting and since it refers to my browser (and I never had it
    before 3 weeks ago) it makes me think something's up with IE.

    ** I also have another question and I'm not sure which area to post it in.
    THANKS
