As I am having problems with my main PC, I am using an old one to go online. I had previously formatted it 50/50 with Win98 and Mandrake 9.2 and when I first used it I used 98 and Internet Explorer- it connects for a few seconds, the homepage loads then I get the 'This program has performed an illegal operation and will close' box every time I try. Yet if I use the Linux via Firefox it connects fine and stays connected.
With regard the linux, when I am about to send information I get a box telling me it will be sent uncrypted, how do I change the setting so it is encrypted.?
