It's possible that your trojan removal has broken something in IE. Did you
try the reset?
Also, you might want to check the group policy settings to see if anything
has been changed, for instance:
1.Start the Group Policy tool (GPEdit.msc).
2.Expand the policy structure using the following path: Computer
Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet
Explorer\Internet Control Panel.
3.Double-click the Prevent ignoring certificate errors setting.
4.If it's Enabled, then set to Disabled.
This GP setting will, if set to Enabled, stop IE from showing the warning
page, it'll just simply not allow you to access the site.
However, I doubt it's this. Can you give any more details as to what "I
cannot access it from IE" actually means? Do you see any messages at all?
Can you get Fiddler2 and run a trace to see if IE even attempts to access
the URL? It's possible you still have parts of that trojan kicking around,
maybe a proxy that IE is forced to use that prevents accessing a
non-standard SSL port to prevent circumvention.
