Unhappy Not Alloying me to a Secure Site

I am running Windows XP Home and I am having a problem going to a secure site. I checked and it is 128 Bit IE6 sp1 and the strangest thing is if I go into safe mode with network I am able to go to the secure sites. Is this a known problem or possible a virus. I even tried creating a new user with admin rights and same thing. I can go to all the regular websites. I even figured that I would just go to the Microsoft web site and down load the IE software, and of cores.. I get to the right site to download and it tries to connect me to a secure site for the download. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Just add it to your trusted sites in Internet Options.

Firefox is insanely good. Faster, slicker, cleaner, and prettier by IE by a longshot

definitely. case in point. right now im typing this post from a computer belonging to my grand parents. i haven't got around to putting firefox on it yet and it is killing me. the only fault i can think of with firefox is i don't know how to change between tabs with the keyboard. does anyone know?
