I installed Firefox today and can now see secure sites!!!!!!!!!!!! It was a browser problem - I don't know what, but I don't care b/c it's gone with firefox!!
I still can't get onto messenger at home, but I CAN get to my bank and to work and to gmail now - that was really the bigger issues!
I had been seeing people talk about it, but didn't really have any interest until I realize that was probably my problem after hearing from some of you!!
Thank ya! Thank ya very much!!!
Yay - I can browse freely at home again!!!!
