IE security question

Whenever I try to reach secure pages, usually ones where I have to sign in for something, like email, or online banking for example, it shows up as page not displayed. I decreased the security and turned on/off PCT, SSL, TLS, etc but no change. Any help?

OS Version.. and IE version information would help.

Win 98, IE 5.0

Mozilla works fine when going to secure sites, but I'd like IE to work too.

In IE.. click on help: about... then it should say something along the lines of cipher strenth... what does it say next to it?

That's the problem. I personally would suggest just using FireFox, but if you want to try and fix IE, here's a few urls that may work:

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=261328
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=195833
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=303823
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=232012

In most cases, upgrading to IE 6 will work as well (which will probably be the easiest thing)

I'm about to give up. I can't find the damn link to update to IE 6.0. I've found about 20 security updates but not the explorer itself.

I also tried renaming some of the .dll files like it recommends but it wouldn't let me because they were in use.

IE 6 SP1

I hope you're on broadband, cause it's gonna be about a 65-70 meg (if not more) download.

Thanks.

IE 6.0 is now working at 128 bit cypher, but still the same problem when going to a few secure pages.
