128 bit encryption and IE 6
I recently upgraded my system to IE 6.0 to get rid of a GPF type errror when I closed IE 5. Since doing this I discovered that IE 6.0 does not have 128 bit encryption available. Does anyone know if m$ will be offering it in the future? In IE 4 and 5 clicking help->about you see Cipher Strenght 128 (link to update information) -this gone in 6.0.
If I reinstall w2k server will it re-install IE 5.0 (which I can update to 128 encryption)?

Apply win2k service pack 2 and it will install the high encryption pack to ie.

I'll reapply it when I get home.

It was actually the high encryption pack that did the trick.
