    Hello everyone, could anyone please explain the following
    items under the advanced tab in internet options:

    . Check for server certificate revocation: What is this? and why/when should I use it?

    . Enable Integrated Windows Authentication:
    What is this for? when do i need it?

    . Enable Profile Assistant: Should this be on or off in relation to privacy etc?

    . Should SSL 2.0+3.0 be on or off?

    . Use TLS 1.0: What is this for, when do i need it?

    Microsoft seems to give no explanation in the help files about these items.

    Im using IE6 SP1+All Criticals etc
    OE6 Not installed, Address book not installed,
    (Dont need them)
    Can anyone help?

    - Revoked Web server certificates are no longer trusted for a variety of reasons (for example, the private key has been lost or compromised). Modern browsers will automatically check a CA's CRL to determine if a Web server certificate is trustworthy. Without such a capability, it is not possible to maintain a trustworthy networking environment.

    A lot of reading. I hope it helps clarify your questions.

    Regards,
