Can you disclose any of your "certain webpages"? ; }
Have you tried asking the specific web sites for help?

The most likely problem is that the server and the client are not finding
a cryptographic standard to agree on, so instead of getting a nice prompt
for userid and password you get the message which comes up when
the user fails that test.

OK. I'm not so in case there is something that is Vista specific about this
symptom I will cross-post to Vista Security.

Re: HTTP Error 403
Well its a bit cheeky - the websites are used for watching streaming tv and
movies that may not necessarily be complying with copyright law. This problem
mainly occurs when I try to open a link containing a video file.
I thought it might be a feature of Vista that it screens that kinda thing.
