recently bought a Dell Inspiron 15, operating on Windows 7. Everything had been running fine until the other day, when Windows Live Messenger would not sign in, I couldn't log into Facebook or into Windows Live Email. I think it is due to me not being able to access secure sites. It seems I have tried everything to fix this. So far these have not worked:
-Changing Internet Explorer 8 Settings, adding these sites to my Trusted sites, enable SSL, clearing caches, deleting temporary files, Cookies, Browsing History, AutoComplete.
-Downloading Mozilla Firefox - this does still not load the pages.
-I have Norton Internet Security 2010, I tried uninstalling this and I still couldn't log in.
-Turning off every firewall or protection for the internet.
-Downloading Malwarebytes Anti Malware, running a scan and fixing the issues that arose.
-System Restored, but upon restarting it told me System Restore did not work
-In the Run window, tried the following:
some were successful, others did not work.
Just to clarify, I can get onto the home page of all the sites but when I sign in it comes up with 'Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage', Mozilla comes up with a similar error message.
I don't know what else to try, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I am experiencing th same set of problems, only add to your list access to updates for Viper, Google and Win7. Then add program updates ... it is a real pain to have to go and do these things manually. See my post "Win7 Email Can't ...." in above question.
My question to you is, have you figured anything out yet?
