    Bampeb, I don't have the answer you want, but I know some of the questions the gurus who hang out here are going to ask!
    #1 What was it it told you to do?
    #2 Can you go back to your previous version of I/E ?
    #3 Have you run the I/E repair tool?

    Try to be a little more specific and there will be people here to help ! Welcome to the site ! ...Rhett

    PS, I tried your link Russell and it is no good, check the url, and edit :)...Rhett

    Thanks for the message on the link - I copied and pasted it - don't know why it didn't work. Well I will just tell you what the Microsoft website said about the problem.

    You can go to http://www.microsoft.com in the Search box type in Q261328. It will find the page I am about to explain to you.

    When you click About Internet Explorer on the Help menu, the cipher strength entry may be "0 Bit" and you may be unable to connect to secure Web sites.

    This issue can occur if the Schannel.dll, Rsabase.dll, or Rsaenh.dll files are absent, damaged, or the wrong version.

    To resolve this issue, use the appropriate method.

    Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me)
    Start the computer in Safe mode.

    Click Start , click Run , and then type msconfig .

    Extract the following files from the Windows Me cab files located at Windir \Options\Install (or the location of a Windows Me flat) into the windir \system folder:

    Verify the version of Windir \System\Advapi32.dll, and if the file is not at least, extract a new copy from Windir \Options\Install into the windir \system folder.

    Re-register each of these three .dll files. To do so, click Start , click Run , and then type the following commands (where windir is the name of your Windows folder):

    regsvr32 windir \system\schannel.dll
    regsvr32 windir \system\rsabase.dll
    regsvr32 windir \system\rsaenh.dll
    Restart the computer in Normal mode. Internet Explorer should now display 128-bit cipher strength.

    For additional information about how to extract files with the System Configuration Utility tool, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
    Q265371 How to Extract and Replace a Protected File in Windows Me
    Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition
    In the Windir \system folder rename the following files:

    Rsabase.dll to Rsabase.old
    Rsaenh.dll to Rsaenh.old
    Schannel.dll to Schannel.old
    Download and install, or reinstall Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 SP1 from the following Web site:

    NOTE :You cannot download the 128 bit encryption from the site if you have 5.5 installed.

    Instead you need to run the file "ie501dom.exe" located in the "C:\Windows Update Setup Files" folder. You may need to first reinstall IE 5.5.

    Restart your computer. Internet Explorer should now display 56-bit cipher strength.

    Download and install the Microsoft Internet Explorer High Encryption Pack for Internet Explorer 5.01 for Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows NT 4.0 from the following Web site:
    If you access the above Web site by using any version of Internet Explorer later than version 5.01, you may receive a message stating that downloading this Encryption Pack is not necessary. Please disregard this message.

    Restart your computer. Internet Explorer should now display 128-bit cipher strength.

    NOTE : In addition, if you restore to 128-bit cipher strength, and you are still unable to view secure sites, check under Advanced tab in the Internet Options and make sure SSL2.0 and SSL3.0 are checked. If not checked, they will be unable to browse to secure sites.
