My computer has a very strange problem. It will randomly limit my browsing to secure web sites only. I don't see anything that causes it, sometimes it's in the middle of surfing the net, and sometimes I'll come back to my computer to find that I can't connect to "un-secure" sites. We have a small network, and mine is the only computer that has this problem. I've tried using different ports on the switch, I've even tried getting a different network card, still the same problem occurs. The only way to get it back to normal again is to disable the network connection and then enable it. The repair function doesn't work. I'm running Windows XP pro, with SP2. Oh also, other functions of the network still work, as in I can browse other computers, use outlook to check my email, chat on mIRC... Anyone know what's going on here?

Great... Should I also "check my computer"? OR any other broad statements?

Anyone have any more specific ideas on whats going on?
This happens with any browser. I mainly use Firefox, but this also affects IE.

If you are using Internet Explore. Open it up and go to tools > Internet Options > Security. Check the default button if you are given that option. Try the same for the privacy tab. See if that allows access to all sites. If you want to keep the high lvl security, add those websites to your trusted list.

in IE, go to Tools > Internet Options. Under Trusted Zones, Restricted Zones and Internet Settings and see what settings you have. Move them to low and see if you have the same problem. If so then download and install HighJackThis from www.majorgeeks.com (listed under Spyware on left). When you install it, launch the application. When it's up, click on Do System Scan and Create Logfile. It will ask you to save the file. Save it somewhere that you can find it (ie Desktop). Then open the file and copy the entire log and paste it here.

You know you have a small network? Do you have a server?
Because I had this problem because Windows 2003 server installs that rubbish high security IE thingy - just a thought that maybe your settings are linked to this - Don't know if that'll help

No, we don't have a windows 2003 server. Or any kind of server. The weird thing is that it happens randomly. One minute I'll be able to view a site, the next I won't be able to. Untill I reset the lan connection. So no one knows what's going on here?
