    Secure Sites Disconnect (IE6.0 SP1)

    I am presently unable to connect to any secure web site since (I think) installing a "Critical Update" on my office computer. I can reach the sites on my Powerbook, so I know the sites are up. I have stried to uninstall the update, but can't discern which update caused this problem. Then I tried system resore, to no avail. I have looked through the KB but haven't found anything. I am similarly unable to log onto MS Messenger. This is a problem as I can't update any of my financial accounts online as they all depend on secure connections. Anyone have any idea what is wrong, or more importantly, how to fix this?

    Thanks.

    Try this first Can't access secure web site Knowledge Base # 813444

    Issues where people can't open up secure sites--like their bank and what not--and when you check cipher strength in the browser it shows as 0. There's a microsoft knoweldgebase article on how to fix the issue. Microsoft

    Or maybe Go to Tools > Internet Options > Privacy and lower it from high to medium or medium to low.
    Close IE and reopen and try again to access a secure site.
