On Windows XP computer with SP 2 loaded the secure sites, i.e. those that
start with "https" won't open. I ran into this once before, but can't
remember the resolution. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi Preacher Ted :-)

Try the following and see if it helps:

Try this... Start> Run
iexplore.exe /rereg
[Enter]
This will reregister all IE DLLs. (OK... it's a long shot.)

Or, you could uninstall SP2 from one machine to see if the problem goes
away.
