I've tried posting this on computer forums but no one seems to be able to help, so I figured I would try my luck here and see if anyone else has come across the same problem. For no reason, internet explorer has stopped loading secure web pages, it says Cannot Find Server. I have done nothing new, haven't installed any programs or visited any unusual web sites. I have run virus scanners and anti-adware/spyware programs. I have tried at least a dozen suggestions I have picked up from searching the net, adjusting security settings and user privileges and so on, and installed a security update that the microsoft web site suggested but nothing fixes it. This is the third time this has happened, the previous two times I eventually had to format the hard drive and re-install windows. It has been three months since I did that last and now its happening again. I'm about ready to throw the whole damn thing out the window. Argh.
