You could try those regsvr32 cmds again to see if the sfc has fixed anything for them but as you have problems with all https sites, then I don't think censorship would be responsible for them all.

and I just try this again and still the same (Still failed)

Perhaps the sfc /scannow undid Shane's fix to get rid of the Win 10 nag and running Shane's fix again should sort it.

There wasn't anything related in the CBS Log that picked up on missing/corrupt .dlls.

Have you ran a robust antimalware scan recently to see if your machine is clean.

I'm not sure if resetting the Hosts File may help https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/kb/972034 but sometimes resetting the winsock can resolve browsing problems.

Run a cmd prompt as an admin and enter netsh winsock reset catalog followed by exit to close the cmd window then reboot.

Adding catalog to the cmd can be optional as I've seen it not required in Win 8.1.

The cmd should return as successful and prompt to reboot.

so do I need to wait for Shane’s answer or all I need to run Shane script once again ?

yes I have already done a malware check with many anti-malware software and my system is clean (a newly installed system )

and I just now done all those and still the same as before so any fix ?

Not off hand.

While I can accept State censorship for perhaps something like Tor, there are quite a lot of legit websites that use secure websites such as for online banking.

While I'm not into other browsers, in IE - Tools - Internet options - Security you can reset all zones to default or you could try adding a known trusted website to Trusted sites to see if it will allow you access.

I don't know if resetting Chrome and Firefox to defaults would have the same effect, but you could give it a try or it may be that you will just have to use IE for https sites - are you able to download/install Tor now using IE ?

resetting Firefox browser won’t effect so Firefox Developers has probably change or remove these most settings (TLS etc) I don’t even know what TLS mean lol ! https://access.redhat.com/articles/1422403 and yes I was able to browsing this site and download the the setup file but I don’t download it just in case !!

and I don’t have Google Chrome on this new system  :tongue:

but I don’t really know if this site is safe or not ?

I have FF as a spare browser and it as-is and I can get to the Tor webpage without any problem.

Have you tried running FF without any add-ons https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode

Do you have v40.0.2 which is the latest version ?

As to installing Tor, I wouldn't have thought that it would stop you using any of your other browsers just as you can swap between IE and FF - I guess it will be a suck it and see moment :D

I suppose the simple answer is to just use IE when you get that error message.

As you have gone through FF's troubleshooting steps, I don't know what else to suggest - I just know that my FF works in its basic form.

XP only supports up to IE8 and that can cause problems in itself because some sites no longer support it - which version of FF are you using on the XP machine ?

I suppose if it isn't working then you aren't going to get any problems with it :) - or did you mean when it was working ?

Some people stay on older versions of browsers because they don't have any problems with them that later versions can have, but it's wrong not to keep any program up to date for security reasons.

Having said that, you could try an older version of FF to see if the https sites are still blocked.

A sort of halfway house is to use Firefox ESR (Extended Support Release). based on a stable version of firefox, it includes current security updates, but not all the new features (which can sometimes be a bit buggy). The current ESR is  based on Firefox 38 and the latest version is v38.2.0

I have used ESR for years, never had any problems, but of course your mileage may vary  :wink:
