We had a request recently to Disable SSL 2.0 on a Customers Server for Security Reasons as it is flagged as an issue when they were doing there internal Pen testing.

You can do this simply by setting the below registry key.

Key: HKLMSYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlSecurityProvidersSCHANNELProtocolsSSL 2.0Server
Value: DisabledByDefault
Type: REG_DWORD
Data: 0x1

Once set reboot the server and SSL 2.0 will be disabled Smile
