Where only a few are on the right track = 98SE error 0x800C0008

The one that works = Re-install the version of IE that you have on your PC.

In my instance it was IE 6 sp1 which I downloaded (via advanced option on
custom installer window) and then needed to run windows update to re-install
3 of the previously loaded critical patches for IE6 SP1.

The bottom line is ... IE's installation or system files were
corrupted/damaged and therefore the system could not access an SSL site.
Error code 0x800C0008 and 0x800C0005 *can* be related to malware doing
this. Or, removal of said malware *can* damage the Winsock stack.
In your case it was the presence of the malware and it's effect on IE.
Win 9x still has that going for it ;)

Same can not be said for XP systems. The quickest method of repairing
/reinstalling IE on an XP SP2 can be accomplished *only* with a
slipstreamed XP CD, i.e. the original XP CD slipstreamed with SP2.

OR, uninstalling SP2, running sfc /scannow with the original CD, then
reinstalling SP2.
