    IE 5.5 and secure sites

    I installed IE 5.5 SP1. I can't access secure sites! My WindowsNT4 (SP6a) start up says 1 service failed (Protected Storage Service). I can't seem to find any information. Can you help?

    Does this tip at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.jsiinc.com/TIP2600/rh2670.htm>JSI</A> apply in any way? (Only thing I could find immediately that might relate.)

    Thanks for the lead, but the problem is that the Protected Storage service won't start, even manually. All I get is a message saying that the service can't find a file (doesn't say which file, of course!).
    I suspect IE5.5 installation misses out some essential files.

    Re: IE 5.5 and secure sites

    I think I've found out what the problem is - somehow I've got set up for 128-bit encryption. It may be that I selected a wrong option when installing IE5.5 SP1. The trouble is, I don't know how to persuade NT4 to go back to standard encryption. NT4 SP6a won't re-install - it says I need the 128 bit encryption version! Re-installing IE5.5 makes no difference.
    Any ideas?

    Uninstall 5.5, In NT that should result in a reversion of I.E. to 4.01, I believe, which does not support 128bit encryption.
