Subject: [24hoursupport] Cannot Access Secure Sites

I am at my wits' end and hope someone can help. Ever since I reformatted my
hard drive and reinstalled Internet Explorer 5.5, I cannot access secure
sites (any that begin with https) at all. I previously had IE 6 and that was
a disaster; many links wouldn't work, even after using some of the fixes
that have been mentioned here so I'm not that anxious to upgrade again.

When checking my cipher strength (clicking help, about internet explorer) it
is set to 0. I click the link to update information, but that link takes me
to a page that says I do not need to do anything because the strong
encryption or whatever is already included with IE 5.5. I have checked my
security settings and all those little boxes under advanced (USE PCT, USE
SSL, USE TLS, etc) are checked. I tried downloading and running the program
microsoft had on their site anyway, but it didn't work.

Netscape works great, and I would just switch to that, but many of the games
I like to play are IE only and the webpages snicker at me when I attempt to
log on using Netscape. Plus Netscape is so bloated and slow.

What's a girl to do?
