I highly recommend you upgrade to at least Windows XP and use Explorer 8 or higher. You are running a way out of date system with an out of date browser. That is a security risk.

I resurrected this machine & find it fun to have it working at it's optimum. I cannot install another OS on to it. You might as well told me to use another machine. That would be missing the point.

Actually, he's completely right. Unfortunately, right now, you are asking to be infected with all kinds of nasties. you need to get a new computer, or update that one to Windows XP. Most people in these forums specialize on Windows 2000 and up. Plus, IE6 isn't supported anymore. Honestly, with the money that you "save" by not getting a new computer, will end up costing you later, because your computer will slowly consume itself from viruses.

If you need help updating your OS, don't be afraid to ask! The people at computing.net are more than willing to walk through even a complete novice at something like an OS upgrade!

Unfortunately if you are running Win98 and IE6 you should consider it a fun "experiment" and not be surprised by any malfunctions which will undoubtedly occur. Its the reality of the situation.

I have other machines. I am merely having fun with fooling with the old machine. I'm sure there are people out there running win 3.1 just to be able to do it. I appreciate your answer though. But while we're on the subject, can this machine with 128mb handle winXP?

Could you tell us what the security alert box says about certificate problems, specifically?
