Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
I think when attempting to view any secure webpage, you receives "This page cannot be displayed." Here is the solution: Most secure websites use 128-bit encryption. In order to view https pages, IE must therefore be using 128-bit security. Verify that your browser supports this under Help -> About Internet Explorer and check that Cipher Strength is set to 128-bit. Next, ensure SSL 2.0 and SSL 3.0 are enabled in your browser settings. Click b>Tools -> Internet Options... -> Advanced tab. Find Use SSL 2.0 and Use SSL 3.0 and ensure both are checked. This issue may also be caused if you previously had local Administrator rights has them removed. One solution is to re-create a new user profile, which will reset all permissions to the appropriate level. If you don't want to go through this trouble, you could also try resetting the permissions on the user's registry hive (HKEY_CURRENT_USER) to give the user Full Control permission over his/her registry hive: 1) Login as a user with local Administrator rights, other than the affected user. 2) Start REGEDT32 (Windows NT/2000) or REGEDIT (Windows XP/2003). 3) Load the registry hive from the affected user's profile: C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\NTUSER.DAT by default. 4) Browse to the loaded hive and modify the permissions to Full Control for the affected user. The user may already have these permissions set, in which case it is necessary to force the permissions onto the tree again as detailed below. 5) To ensure the permissions have take effect, I recommend force-propagating the permissions down. Advanced -> check the "Replace permission entries on all child objects with entries shown here that apply to child objects." -> Click OK. Remember to unload the user's registry hive when finished! Other solutions include: Ensure your computer date and time are set correctly. Clear your web browser cache (Tools -> Internet Options... -> Delete Files -> Delete all content). Add the Secure Site to your list of trusted sites. Clear the SSL State (Tools -> Internet Options... -> Content tab -> Clear SSL State). Please donot forget to rate me if am a bit helpful in this :)

Could you please expand a little, you want to purchase vista on a secure web site?, or you wish to know about Vista, or are you not able to view secure web sites using Vista. If it's the last then open up internet explorer IE7 , select tools on the menu bar, then internet options at the bottom of the list, then click content then select the enable button, you may be asked to make up a password, then when you get all the slider options, move then further along to the right to allow more content to be viewed. Then go to the privacy tab and make sure medium is showing if not click settings and alter.
