    Ever since Friday i have not been able to log on to secure sites like gmail,
    yahoo mail, any credit card log on pages, or personal banking pages. I am
    running IE7 on a XP PRO X64 OS. I noticed there was a windows update for
    security on Friday and can not get these pages to come up. Each time i click
    to log on, or go to gmail for example, "this page can not be displayed" pops
    up. It sounds similar to scenarios listed earlier by some people.

    I intially thought it might be my eTrust AV but i disabled and still
    nothing. I did notice that the MICrosoft Phishing filter reads it isnt
    working properly when online. I tried adding trusted sites and turning
    phishing on and off but nothing. Not sure where to go on this or if there is
    a fix. Like i said, this all started after Friday's update.

    Are you running a security suite/program from Norton, McAfee, etc? It might
    be having a problem with an update.

    Try disabling browser add-ons.
    for troubleshooting information.

    Or, try the Reset button in Internet Options> Advanced. Note that this will
    delete stored (autocomplete) passwords. Do you have those recorded

    If resetting IE settings helps, you may still have to re-enable browser
    add-ons individually to see if the troublesome one can be found.

    I have had the same experience with web pages since a few days ago. This is
    so annoying. I missed paying 2 bills on time because this caught me by
    surprise. I have uninstalled my Norton 360 (which is another hornet's nest
    of problems due to incompatibility issues w/ Vista) but now I have no virus
    protection. Also did a system restore back to Friday. I believe these
    Windows automatic updates are important, but I want to be able to pick and
    choose. Is there an easy way around these issues, anybody?

    i have reset IE7 numerous times and still the same issue. To answer your AV
    question, i am running CA eTrust AV for 64 bit machines.

    In the mean time i have had to use my IE 64 bit version to log on to sites
    like this. but every time i try to view a video file it has to download to
    Temp internet folder and then goes to win media player.
