Can't open secure websites

When it comes to the internet, people heavily rely on it working properly. If you are running Internet Explorer with an encryption setting of less than 128-bit, you may encounter an error message saying, "The page cannot be displayed." This error message is generally displayed when the internet browser cannot display certain secured web pages. It happens if there is a breakdown in communication between the computer's web browser and the web server that is hosting the website. Search your computer system for hidden files called Hosts. Open the Hosts file using Notepad and delete any reference to the problem site or create and run a .bat file using the appropriate commands and save it as Securefix.bat. To open the secure web pages, run this bat file.


It happens that some secure (https) websites can't be opened on Internet Explorer or other browsers.
You can get this error "The page cannot be displayed". This is because these websites use the 128-encryption and your browser isn't set to open them.


To open these websites you will have to create and run a .bat file.
Follow these steps below...
  • Open Notepad, copy then paste these DLL's in notepad:

regsvr32 SOFTPUB.DLL   
regsvr32 WINTRUST.DLL   
regsvr32 INITPKI.DLL   
regsvr32 dssenh.dll   
regsvr32 Rsaenh.dll   
regsvr32 gpkcsp.dll   
regsvr32 sccbase.dll   
regsvr32 slbcsp.dll   
regsvr32 Cryptdlg.dll
  • Save it as "all file type" and name it as securefix.bat
  • Then Run this bat file...

Now you will be able to open secure websites on your browser without any problem.
