  I'm unable to upload results from a fresh install of Windows 7... I know this is old, but I hope to run the benchmark for two Quadro FX 5600 cards in SLI (before I return to Windows 10 and attempt the same).

The test runs, but after a few minutes a dialogue appears: `WinHttpSendRequest failed: ERROR_WINHTTP_SECURE_FAILURE`. GB5 has been added to the firewall.

Any suggestions other than go back to Win10?

Thanks for your help in advance.

    Windows 7 in some cases still uses TLS1.0 with is denied by the server You can fix that (you want Windows 7 to use TLS1.1 or TLS1.2).

    1. Make sure you have KB3140245 installed.
    2. Run MicrosoftEasyFix51044.msi (download from Microsoft)
    3. Run Geekbench again. At least that worked for me.

    Thank you hostile, this TLS thing fixed the error for me.
    Only thing is I still can't access this site (not the results site) over https, only http.

    This is true. Inspect the certificate of this server. They have the default Tender SSL certificate in use. See bottom of this page.
    Of course, this is bad practice. Hopefully they will change this soon.
