Uninstall IE6, apply the high encryption pack @ http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/downloads/recommended/128bit/

And reinstall Ie6.

I had to do this a few times once then it finally took :)

A good option.... Install Mozilla  as your default Browser.... thie problem you have relates to IE/Windows explorer, which can be fixed by uninstalling and then re-installing, ....... but Mozilla won't give you that problem.
 Go to  http://www.mozilla.org/... and download V1.6 and allow the Quick Start option.
