It could be your firewall blocking port 443 which is the secure port https this link tells you about port 443 click here

The site is the same site, but its uses the https prefix click here

Which firewall are you using?

my firewall is just the windows one. the links on the above site when clicked bring up the same screen i'm getting with all secure sites. it says the page cannot be displayed

Just a thought, if you have downloaded something from Microsoft it may have increased the security settings, you could try lowering them by right clicking on the IE icon and going to the security tab and lowering the slider down a bit.

If it still doesn't work you could temporarily switch the firewall off and see if you can gain access. If you then can, there is a setting which needs changing.
