Problems using Windows Update & Messanger

  skenth 22:52 07 Nov 2003


I have a very unusual problem with a computer. cannot access windows updat, it will not let me access windows messanger, log into hotmail or even visit any https:// sites. I thought this was a virus but scanned it with Norton with the latest definitions. Even connected the hard drive to another computer and scanned the drive. I cannot find what is wrong with it? I though it was something to do with that blaster virus. Any ideas??

Thats fine but most banking sites are secure sites. The non secure sites are fine. also what about logging into hotmail and Messanger and also being unable to complete windows update?
