Hi,

I've just install Windows 2000 professionnal and Internet explorer 6.  For some reason, I can't access to high encrypted sites any more.  They keep telling me that I have not enough encryption.  So I downloaded the IE version 128 bits and try to install it.  But it told me that this version could not be installed on WIN2K.

Then I tried to uninstall IE6 without success !

What should I do now ?


Thanks in advance.

Win2K supposedly includes 128bit encoding, but you have to install it. Look under control panel, add/remove programs, windows components. Install the high-encryption component.

You may have to uninstall ie6, do the win2k fix, re-install ie6.

p.s. 128bit encryption is no longer restricted to the U.S., which is why Win2K and IE6 now include it standard.

Once installed, 128 bit encryption CANNOT be removed.

Alternatively, install WIN2K SP2, which will upgrade your machine to 128-bit encryption.

So Win2K Pro (original) doesn't include 128-bit encroption?

I may have gotten it out of the SP2.. I did install that.. Anyway, yes. Install the win2k specific encryption and then reinstall ie6 (if needed).
