IE unable to access secure sites. Unable to do fixes re secure posts etc as only have Restore CD. In addition wanted to complete restore as machine runing slow but Adaware and SkyBot only fine small number of issues and remove them. But still no better.
Tried to run my no " r"restore CD but appears to start loading and then just sits there. Message "loading from ** cd drive. I dont have that CD drive anymore as it failed. But does show first Image window?
PC about 4 yrs old 1800mhz 512mb memory approx 2.4 gig of 10 gig c Drive spare. 2nd partition on "c" used for bits and pieces. 2nd HD used for data backup etc.

Any Ideas Thanks

Was the Restore CD made as a Windows Rescue CD or is it a vendors' CD with Windows included amongst other utilities and software?

What version of Windows?
