I did have I.E 6.0, but my service provider changed it to IE 7.0. This wouldn't work, so it was changed back to 6.0. But now, I there are some websites I cannot log into. these are my internet banking, Myspace, hotmail. Also, MSN doesn't connect.
Can anyone tell me how I can fix this problem?
Thanks in advance.

I don't understand what you mean "my service provider changed it to IE 7.0"

The version of IE is nothing to do with your service provider.

It's up to you to download it (or not) from the MS update site.

Which version do you have on your PC and where did you install it from?

I had IE 6.O, computer was messing about, then lost all broadband when I rang my service provider (NTL) they talked me through how to get my broadband back on however the IE was then on 7.0. They told me to uninstall it and reinstall IE 6.0 off my back records.

I think that if you do a system restore to a time before all of your hassle started it should cure your problem. If you need help with a System Restore post back.

"reinstall IE 6.0 off my back records"

Back records???

If you un-installed IE6 via Add/Remove programs it should have reverted to IE6.

Have a look at your IE security settings. In IE go to Tools; Options and ensure that under the Privacy and Security tabs the settings are set at Default.

It could have been the automatic download from WindowsUpdate.

Jackcoms I went to the IE security settings and the default is on medium. Bagsey I have already tried the system restore it didn't make any difference.

Now look in Tools; Options; Advanced.

Scroll down to Security and ensure that 'Use SSL 2.0' and 'Use SSL 3.0' are ticked.

Use SSL 2.0 and Use SSL 3.0 are ticked Jackcoms

  mum63 17:10 09 Jan 07

Use SSL 2.0 and Use SSL 3.0 are ticked Jackcoms

OK, in IE go to Tools; Options; General and, under 'Temporary Internet Files' click the 'Delete Cookies' and 'Delete Files' buttons to clear out your Cookies and Temp Internet files.

Then try your banking and Hotmail sites, etc.
