Password problems in IE5.01 SP2

I am having problems with getting passwords to save in IE 5.01 sp2. On the network we have 3 NT4 Terminal Servers (1,2,3)and 4 W2k Terminal Servers (4,5,6,7). Before moving the users to server 4,5,6&7 there where no problems. Then when we moved the users to the 2k servers we updated everyting including IE. With this when ticking the 'Save Password' tick box, it only does it about 1 out of 10 times. It tends to only happen on sites that require secure logons of 128bit encryption. I have looked at every posible aspect of this and have come up with nothing. If there is anyone else out there that would be able to help me I would be very thankfull.

You can try upgrading to MSIE 5.5, not sure if 5.0 actually has the 128 bit encryption

Ok, I just check on my home win2k box, and sure enough... MSIE doesnt have 128 bit encryption. Help > about > shows 56 bit... Upgrading to MSIE 5.5 should resolve it.
