cannot connect to secure web sites

By ehughbanks ·
I am running win98, internet explorer5.01sp1,
sometime in the last week I now cannot connect to websites that say I am entering a secure connection,I tried changing my ie security settings to low but this did no good, I had the settings very restrictive, I have 2 other pcs on my home network and they can access the sites fine,any ideas where I should start to troubleshoot or what is wrong? I am sure it is something stupid I did but I need help....
thanks

I notice that copy and paste seems to insert spaces in the links, so make sure to delete any spaces in the URL above.

there was a problem in the 128bit encryption as this article suggested, but this patch would not install

The above suggestions are very knowledgable.
But if it is not solving your problems: try the following in order (if (1) cannot help; then use (2); until the problem is solved.
1) Do you have upgraded to 128 bit encryption too?
2) Don't try IE 5.5! Some computers have extreme problems after "upgrading" to it.
3) control panel --> remove programs --> choose IE --> repair
4) Run --> sfc
5) Un-install the sp1 and re-install it again; if it does not help. UN-install the IE 5.0 also; and re-install IE 5.0 and 5.01.
