I recently installed windows 2000 pro. on my PC and only a couple of days later I was not able to access my bank account. I got a message that told my that my Internet Explorer Cipher Strenght changed. So I chequed and sure enough it was changed.
I did an update but no change. I don't know what made it change. I was setting up my home network, maybe that had some thing to do with it?
How can that be fixed?
