    Hi,

    Well, this aging 'computer whiz' has done it again. I have put one foot securely in a hole and I am doing my utmost to jump in head first...lol

    Here is the scoop. I installed IE 5.5, Sp#1 over IE 5.01, Sp#1 about a month ago. Since then I have had the occassion to run The IE repair twice. Both times the repair seemed to go smoothly until it was time to reboot to finish the repair. Each time I rebooted Windows kept presenting the 'Personalized Settings' window one after another until I had 7 or 8 of them minimized in my startup tray. Finally I just had to shut down the computer to get it to stop.

    And, before you ask, now I can't even remember what the problem was that caused me to try running the repair. It was an error message dealing with IE, but for the life of me I can't recall anything about it.

    Now for my current problem.

    Last night I got this brilliant (lol) idea to just reinstall IE 5.5, Sp#1 off my IntelliMouse Optical 4.0 CD which is what I used about a month ago when I installed it over 5.01.

    Well, now since I did this, I can no longer access any of my secure sites. After going to the 'About Internet Explorer' listed under 'Help' I discovered I had lost my High Encryption Pack Setting (128-bit) somewhere in this whole mess. All that is now listed after 'Cipher Strength' is '0'-bit where it used to say 128-bit.

    I had been accessing my secure sites right up to before I did the reinstall last night. But, ever since I did it, I am unable to connect to any of them.

    And, in the 'for what its worth' department, I just went into my 'Windows Update Setup Files' and found a file called 'Ie501dom.exe' and executed it, but after it supposedly installed the 128-bit encryption pack I rebooted as directed but still had no 128-bit.

    I also read on a Microsoft site where I could rename the three files (1) Schannel.dll, (2) Rsabase.dll and (3) Rsaenh.dll in C:\Windows\System to 'old' and then reinstall IE but when I went to try it I got a message saying that two of the three files were in use by Windows.

    Any ideas or will I be forced to revert to the IE 4.0 that came with the computer and work my way up again?

    Thanks and regards,

    2harts4ever

    Evening all,

    The missing 128-bit Encryption Pack has been solved.

    To make a long story short I went to Add/Remove Programs and reverted back to IE 4.0. Then I reinstalled IE 5.5, Sp#1 from a folder I had on my desktop and the 128-bit Encryption Pack had been restored.

    Now, my only problem is I also got rid of Outlook Express 5 in the process and the only version left on my computer is the earlier 4.72.3110.5 version.

    I can't find OLE anywhere on the CD I used to install IE 5.5 to my desktop and I think the OLE 5 I had been using came with the IE 5.01 I had previously.

    Thanks and regards to all,

    2harts4ever
