If the site is secure, the address should begin with https.

Tools > Internet Options > Advanced - scroll down to the yellow padlock 'Security' and make sure there is a tick in Use SSL.2.0 and in Use SSL 3.0 - click on Apply and OK.


SSL (Secure Sockets Layer).

Thanks for the info and I have tried all of your suggestions but it's still the same.


I have tried Ebuyer on my daughters PC which connects to the net through my computer and the padlock is showing

What's going on ?

I have just reinstalled my ghost image and all is fine with the padlock now.

Thanks again all
