How to clear the SSL state on Windows 2000 with IE6

Hello all,

I am having an issue getting to a HTTPS website.  Only that HTTPS website I can get to other HTTPS websites.  All the searching tells me to just press the "Clear SSL State" button on the content tab of IE options.  However, I do not have the "Clear SSL State button"  I checked another windows 2000 box that I have and it doesn't have the button either.

How do I clear out the SSL state so I can reload the certificate for this one site?

jcimarron,

Thanks for the input.  I have already gone down the roads you mentioned and none of it worked.  The only route left to me was a reinstall of IE6.  However, the store needed the machine back so the decision was made to reimage it later.  We will limp along without email (site I was trying to get to) till Tuesday when the tech with the image can drive out there and wipe the machine.

The only question I really have now is why is there no "Clear SSL state" button.  All the docs seem to assume that it is there.  However, it is not present on any of my current Windows 2000 boxes.  Oh well.  Probably one of those mysteries of the universe that never gets solved because, let's face it, this is 2012, bossman should really look at upgrading to Windows ME or maybe even go all out and get XP.  I mean, after all, this is the modern era.

Thanks anyway.  Points awarded for trying.

karislove--You are welcome!
As you may have seen the person with the Win 2000 box did not have it either

Maybe Win 2k or some of the versions did not have it.
