Seems like there are some wininet issues with the latest schannel update for Windows XP. If you’ve got an older web server that is not compliant with IETF RFC 5746, and you use applications that connect to that old web server via wininet (like WCF apps, IE, etc), you are going to have issues. Microsoft has posted KB 2384778 on how to work around this, so I thought I’d save some people some time if they start seeing this.
