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?

All you need to do is upgrade your IE to the newest version available. This will increase you cipher strength to the highest availble.
