I have a very big problem here. I cant access any secure sites. (SSL)

I am running IE6 on Windows 2003 Standard Server machine.
With Exchange 2003 and Kaspersky AV.

It was working fine and after I run Windows Update I can no longer access secure sites (SSL) or windows update !!

Also I cant access Add/Remove Windows Components:
It says : Setup librari iis.dll could not be loaded, or function OcEntry could not be found. Contact your system administrator. The specific error code is 0x7e.

This is starting to become a very serious issue and i need help with it big time !!

I came across this post on EE
but I dont follow.

Back to work, hope it adds some help until others come along with specifics.

Good luck,

Is it safe to assume you'be gone through the recommendations and links and still have seen no change?

Error messages continue?  New ones?

Anything specific in the Event Logs?

WindowsUpdate checked?

start - run - sfc /scannow tried with Windows disk handy?

SSPI supports Schannel, an interface that implements three industry standard protocols:

• Transport Layer Security (TLS) version 1.0
• Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) version 3.0
• Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) version 2.0
