Hello all,

I've just installed Internet Explorer 7, and it seems to work OK.

But, on the old Explorer, I used to get a little padlock that showed me encrypted sites (banking etc) was working. There doesn't seem to be any little icon for this Explorer.

I right click on properties and see that encryption seems to be working, but I wonder if there should be some little icon or other.

Can anyone help?

A gold padlock should appear at the end of the address bar when you are on a secure site.
