    While trying to connect to my internetbank, by trying to download my
    certificate, (it says it uses a microsoft activex and if prompted, i have to
    accept it) the process is halted, without any further progress. Might this be
    a BETA-issue or is there some setting in IE 7+that has to be modified first
    for the activex to be downloaded and installed?

    It could be the IE7 reporting as IE7... alot of banks dont like that yet.
    There is a post somewhere on here on how to make IE7 report as IE6 to
    websites.. it helped me with wellsfargo.

  3. Or the use of SSL 2.0. Try to check that option under the advanced tab.

  4. I would suggest caution in modifications possibly affecting Windows security
    especially when personal financial information is involved.

    Personally, if a 3rd party tweak is needed, I want nothing to do with it
    where it concerns my finances etc.

    Have the same issue with my bank. I'm using Firefox for internet banking.
    Works fine!

    Dear all,

    Check if your internet banking requires the installation of JAVA.
    Some banking requires Java to run properly. Note that Java has
    to be manually installed from Windows XP onwards.

    On IE7 / Vista, TLS is enabled by default. Thus, if you are trying to connect
    to a website which is using SSL, it should be supporting TLS and TLS

  9. Contact the bank directly and ask about IE-7 and Vista support.
    I am sure the answer will be they do not support Beta products on their web
    That would be prudent policy when dealing with the finances, privacy etc of
    their customers.

  10. In addition, I have tried Firefox in Windows XP. It works.

    But it fail when I run Firefox in Vista.

  12. I am not attempt to compare Firefox and IE7 but just want to provide more

    It seems that the problem comes from Vista, not IE because Firefox can open
    the site under WindowsXP but not in Vista

  13. There is really no problem.
    But if there is a problem, it is caused by the financial institution.
    They do not support those programs in the Beta version.
    Once they are out of Beta, most likely support will come quickly.
    There is nothing Microsoft can do to resolve this.
    The financial institution will need to make the changes to their system once
    they decide to support the new version most likely after the Beta is
    Beta is the key point.
    Beta is why it is unsupported.

  14. Hey Jupiter lighten up. Don't take offense.

    With IE7 beta2 in vista (5384) no internet banking. With opera 9.0 on vista
    got internet banking. With IE7 beta 3 and sbs 2003 sp1 got internet banking.

    The problem must reside with IE7 beta 2 or an incompatibility with vista. It
    looks like the Microsoft team working on IE has been working through the
    problems, not my Bank. I will be testing this on xp home and pro later
    Looking forward to the next release of IE for vista or the next public build
    with IE 7
    beta 3 or newer.

    Now if we just could move that refresh and stop buton to the left side, that
    would be something.

  15. Do you get banking on the same sites as others can not?
    Or is it a different bank?

  16. Well i had the same problem till today. I just disabled the TLS support and
    Bank acces work Ok.
