Hi there

I have created a vbs which sets the values ok on my machine so should hopefully work ok for you

You will need to save the following code in a file like updateReg.vbs and then run it

Note the SSL3 option maintains the SSL 2 and TLS 1 options on the advanced tab. If you just want SSL3 regardless  of the current settings then remove this section CInt(strSSL) + from the if statement

Any questions just ask

Cheers

Scott

  ' The location in the registry for the Temporary Internet files setting
  regTemp = "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\SyncMode5"

  ' The location in the registry for the SSL setting
  regSSL = "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\SecureProtocols"

  ' Run the code to update the registry
  update_Registry


  Sub update_Registry()

    ' The shell will be used to manipulate the registry
    Set WSHShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

    ' Update the Temporary Internet files setting to "Every visit to the page"
    WSHShell.RegWrite regTemp,"3", "REG_DWORD"
 
    ' Get the current value of the SSL options
    strSSL = WSHShell.RegRead(regSSL)
 
    ' If the value is not already SSL 3.0 Then add SSL 3.0 to the current options
    If strSSL = "0" Or strSSL = "8" Or strSSL = "128" Or strSSL = "136" Then WSHShell.RegWrite regSSL,CInt(strSSL) + 32, "REG_DWORD"

    ' Tidy up
    Set WSHShell = Nothing

  End Sub
