On https pages, when I click on links to Submit or "Next" the browser just sits and does nothing (No sign of activity, and it occurs on more than one site.)
I stopped using IE everyday for a while, run Norton, Zone Alarm, Spyware Blaster, and Spyware S&D. Found nothing suspicious, etc.
Wickydoohah: Well, I was using IE then probably got the then-latest pre-SP2 update etc. and at about the same time started playing with Firefox. Then I used FF all of the time. I was just checking into IE-land and went to a https page and bingo: nada. Beats me why it's a dead end, but I don't want to monkey with things until I know I won't make things worse.
Like you, I also disabled ZoneAlarm and Norton Anti-Virus, and ran SpyBot, but none of these had any effect. I even went so far as to set the IE Internet security zone to "Low" (the lowest setting) and it also made no difference. I have active scripting enabled but receive no error messages in the status bar.
I finally gave up on using IE for https sites as I never found an answer. It's a sad day when I can successfully use an older browser like Netscape 4.5 on those sites but something newer like IE gets stuck in the mud! Thank goodness Firefox has arrived!
I suspect ZoneAlarm might have something to do with this problem. I've been running ZA for years but I don't remember when the problems with IE started. And rather than uninstall ZA, I'd much rather switch to a different browser than give up my safety net! Firefox is now what I use for almost everything.
Sorry I can't be of much help...
