Good morning.  Is it possible to get the above for XP or only if you have Vista?  My Vista machine has 256 bit, but my XP has 128 bit and I can't seem to find a download link for IE8 256-bit for XP.  Thanks.

Only if you have Vista. XP does not include the necessary cryptographic providers for 256-bit cipher strength. And at this stage in the game I think it unlikely it'll ever get them.
