Joakim,

Is this update installed ? :

Security Update for Windows 2000 (KB835732)
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=0692C27E-F63A-414C-B3EB-D2342FBB6C00&displaylang=en

If not, download and save it. Close IE, then install it.
Restart the system and see if the issue is resolved.

If it is installed already, try re-registering these files :
Go to Start, Run, type in

regsvr32 schannel.dll

Click OK. You should receive a notification of the successfull or
unsuccessfull registration of the file.
Now do the same for these files, clicking OK after inputting each one :

rsabase.dll

rsaenh.dll

Revisit Windows Update to see if the issue is resolved.
( If you get an unsuccessfull error message when registering the .dll
files then you can run sfc /scannow to replace needed system files.
