Cannot Log onto any Secure Sites? Please Help?

Hi. I can't seem to be able to log onto facebook or email. It shows that this site is untrusted?? Can anyone help? I do not think it is a virus, but I think my security may be down? Thanks in advance.

    IE (pre-8): Go to the site first> Tools> Internet options> Security> tick the 'Trusted' icon> Sites> Add> ok> out

    Note this setting may permit undesirable 'Active scripting' or other server based action: use with caution, especially if you have 'Active content' allowed.

    Again, supplemental blockers, in browsers mainly, may have to be muted, or 'site allowed'.

    Stop undesirable advertising:

    INTERNET EXPLORER: Tools> Internet Options> Privacy> Advanced:

    here check 'Override automatic....'; 'Allow session cookies'; 'Allow 1st party cookies' & **'Block 3rd Party Cookies'**.

    IE 8:

    Go to the site needing approval & copy the URL from address bar, then:

    Tools> Internet Options> Privacy> Sites> paste that URL into top line> Allow> OK> OK.

    The "Pop-up Blocker" may also need to be modified to accommodate the site.

    Tools> Internet Options> Pop up blocker heading> Settings> again, paste that URL into the slot> Close> OK.

    General cookie settings should be:

    Tools> Internet Options> Privacy> Advanced: tick "Override..."; Allow 1st party cookies; Allow session Cookies & BLOCK 3rd Party cookies> OK> OK.

    The security in most web browsers in in-built, as well as the standalone security programs checking. Your standalone may be the cause, try turning it on if it's off, or off if it's on. Then if you get into the webpage, you can just reverse what you did.

    Usually when it tells you that it's not secure there is a button that says; "Continue anyway".

    If there really isn't any way you can do it, I think a new web browser would be good. (The ones I know of are; IE, Mozilla, Opera and Chrome)
