Default Can't Get into Secure sites

This all started when I downloaded an Update for Norton which slowed my system to a crawl when I started it up.

I replaced it with AVG and now

I can log into secure sites.

I thought it was norton but after manually deleteing everything having to do with Symantec off my system I still can't log in.

Is it AVG is it norton's ghost? is there something in my registry (which is a huge mess) that's doing this?

I run Windows ME BTW.

It seems like I've done everything.

It's this way in both IE and Mozilla as well as loging into MSN Messager.

What should I do?

Hey bemanisuperstar,

I am not sure if you have Norton 2004 or not but I found
this link describing Norton 2004 and it slowing down internet
surfing noticeably.

And Norton is famous for leaving numerous registry keys in your
computer after you uninstall it.

Good Luck

Well I diddn't delete everything I went back searched for Symantec deleted that rebooted and now I can get on to secure sites.

I was running norton 2002. I now run AVG with is 1000000X better.

Norton wasn't letting me uninstall it either so I had to do it manually.

So everything is working just fine now. I just gotta get the soundcard working
