I am using windows 98 on this computer. I have tried trashing my old internet explorer and reinstalling.
I have changed all my security levels to their lowest, allowed all things or asked for a prompt in the advanced settings. I downloaded netscape and can reach the https sites from there but the pages I need to get to do not accept netscape. I don't know where or how to search for firewalls because when I type "firewall" into the help/search there are no matches. I tried scanning for updates or patches but at the microsoft site when they scan for updates, I get a message my computer time might be off. I downloaded a small program to set the clock via the internet, the time adjusted, but I still get the same message. I am at a loss as to what to try next. Any ideas?

Before I try that I have found that I have a corrupted file. When I re-downloaded internet explorer there was an error message rsaenh.dll file was not installed or corrupted. Is this my problem?

you don't need to open it..you just need to put it in the proper location...which i think would be in the c:\windows\system32 folder
