Can't open secure sites

Everytime I attempt to open a secure site it goes to "page cannot be displayed". This happens with sites like hotmail, paypal, and my online banking. I thought it was a IE problem but I have Mozilla Firefox and it won't connect to secure sites either. I've messed around with my security settings, but nothing seems to work. Anybody out there that can help me?

You might have to check for spyware—install Spybot and Ad-aware, download the latest updates for each program, and scan your machine.

What version of IE are you running? Also go to Help, About Internet Explorer and make sure you are running 128 bit encription. You might also check zone alarm (if you are running it).

BTW, I had a problem with that when I had an older version of IE. Downloading the most current version solved my problem (tho be aware, some prefer some of the older versions).

let me guess, using XP.

Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
At the command prompt, type the following lines and press ENTER after each line:

regsvr32 softpub.dll
regsvr32 wintrust.dll
regsvr32 initpki.dll
regsvr32 dssenh.dll
regsvr32 rsaenh.dll
regsvr32 gpkcsp.dll
regsvr32 sccbase.dll
regsvr32 slbcsp.dll
regsvr32 cryptdlg.dll
there's more steps but the quoted ones are usually enough

happens all the time to Sony customers, walking someone through those regsvr32 commands over the phone sucks

I think it reinstalls the files needed for the 128bit encryption
