Cookies and secure sites
A couple of weeks ago I posted a message noting problems trying to access
secure (https) sites (XPH SP3 IE7). Certain sites were inaccessible, whilst
others were unaffected.

PABear and others suggested various solutions. FWIW, in the end I had to do
a default reset of IE7. YMMV.

I suggest copying your IE settings somewhere first, so you can reset your
options. One easy way (though probably not the shortest), is to use
Alt-PrintScrn to copy a snapshot of the options to eg, Paint, as a *.jpg and
save the file.

Re: Cookies and secure sites
Did you identify which of your IE settings was causing your problem?

Re: Cookies and secure sites
Afraid not.

I even tried desperate things like deleting the https site I couldn't access
from "Trusted sites", adding it to "Restricted sites", deleting it from the
latter and putting it back in "Trusted sites", with a restart in between
every time! Well, you never know...

I can only assume there was something in the registry which got
amended/deleted by the default reset, as I'd tried everything within
"Internet options" and MS recommendations (short of a sytem restore). Have
you any idea which keys are affected by the default reset?
