Hey guys,

I was wondering if anyone can provide a link or something to the Microsoft 128 bit encryption download for Windows 98 only.  I only found it for Windows 98 Second edition and above versions.

Also, will this slow down my web surfing or download speeds?

You can browse through tons of updates for windows 98 here
http://corporate.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/en/

As for slowing down web surfing. To the best of my knowledge the encryption only works on SSL pages (https://) and will not affect any other surfing.

Are you referring to the Encryption pack for Internet Explorer for Windows 98? If so, maybe this link will work:

Hope this helps,

Encryption does not work on attachments also. With Win Se if you choose to use the Encryption a validation is required for you at Verisign at a cost of 14 dollars a year. Both sides need this configuration. I just did a little research myself, since I am dealing with an Eastern Block nation that has a dictator in place and they monitor all e-mails. This is how I found out about the Verisign. Details can be found when you open Outlook express and go to TOOLS, OPTIONS, SECURITY and click "Encrypt all out going messages and attachments. Then you will need to Digitally sign the correspondence. Look under help for more details.

Sorry guideway, you're so right; I'd better get those glasses cleaned.  LOL.  If ever I make such an error and were to have been awarded points, I would have rectified it.

Thanks for the good news, whatever11.  Help - About certainly does tell us what it is.  LOL.

No problem, Astaec. Not that it mattered in this case anyway. ;-)
