Hi,

Open Internet Explorer, choose Help|About. The cipher strength entry will read either 40 bit or 128 bit.

HTH,
Steve

One of the SP FAQs at Microsoft says:

How do I know if I have a 40-bit or 128-bit system?

If you are unsure which encryption level of Windows NT was originally installed on a server, you can check by right clicking on Schannel.dll in System32 and checking the file description.
To check encryption level:

Click Start, point to Programs, and then click Windows NT Explorer.
Click the Winnt folder and then click the System 32 folder.
Right click on Schannel.dll, click Properties, click version tab and then view description.
If the description indicates "Export version", you have a 40-bit system. If it indicates "U.S. domestic version," you have a 128-bit system.

Note: If you do not see Schannel.dll on your system, make sure that your computer is set to show all files:

Open My Computer, point to View, and then click Options.
On the View tab, enable the Show All Files Option and click OK.
