HTTPS long load times/timeout

I have an issue with shutdown of windows 2000 where it takes one minute where it just sits at the waiting to shutdown screen - there is a TSB but it is not yet installed to fix it.

But I noticed another problem I cannot use several HTTPS sites on eBAY, my webhost provider, etc. All HTTPS page take 1-3 minutes to load on my fully updated windows 2000 machine running Sygate Firewall 5.1(although it was terminated before accessing the web), IE5.0, 5.1, 6.0 several 128bit and standard encryption, client machine, works fine before MS auto install updates 'service'.

Is there a monitor or shutdown of service/task to help release HTTPS communication? Any advice? I know this is a service pack or sygate issue (8 reinstalls trying to pinpoint the culprit) virtually stock machines.

try this spybot software out to see if any of your system files were modified/damaged by some sneaky app.

just a guess, but worth a shot.

Sorry for delay, found bug has to do with version of windows management file. At time this was resolved it meant replacing 'winmgt' file under windows with a version pre dating 2001. Have run into many systems needing this, suprised it is not more popularly found on the internet. *Unknown security issue with backdating that one file.. which may be reason kept quite too.
