Internet secure site access

  lm 10:55 13 Nov 2005

Had BT "Pay as you Go" internet access, upgraded to BT Broadband. Using XP sp2 with IE6. Now unable to access some secure sites / pages. BT Helpdesk are unable to solve, MicroSoft ref' 870700 recommendations do not solve the problem either.
Any thoughts ?

Hi Im. open IE and go to 'help' then 'about' have a look and make sure that the 'cipher strength' is 128, if it is not then that is your problem, needs a re-install of IE. alternatively you could download Mozilla Firefox and try using that to access secure sites...might work..

good luck

i tried your suggestion but I am already on 128 so no luck there.
This afternoon I went in the internet using the old dial up programme and I found that I can access the sites with no problem - it must be something to do with the Broadband.
