I keep getting the "Cannot find server or DNS error" on IE6 only on certain sites, e.g. www.mcafee.com, www.hertz.com and other sites that use encryption I assume. I tried the Microsoft fixes, adjusting SSL, TLS, etc.., anti-virus programs, spybot, adaware, but no luck. Tried to empty my "temporary internet files", but strangely cannot. Switched to mozilla/firefox and netscape, but those have a "unable to connect" message for the same sites. Here is a log of my Hijackthis, please help!

Just out of curiosity (I don't think I can work on this log), if you open IE and go to help and then to "about internet explorer", what does it say for cipher strength?
