IE8 problem......certificates


R

richard

When I need to use IE8 on my webserver, MS is kind enough to warn me that
this site can't be trusted and is a danger to my computer simply because I
don't have an active certificate thing.

Is there any way in IE8 or windows 7 to turn this feature off?

I don't see where MS has the legal right, IMO, to scare people away from a
site simply because their system can't see a certificate. Even then, a
certificate doesn't prevent someone from including harmful script.

In IE8 check your Internet Options/Advanced Tab, look under the Security
heading.

Thanks. I thought I had it beat but still I get this warning:

There is a problem with this website's security certificate.


The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a
trusted certificate authority.
The security certificate presented by this website has expired or is not
yet valid.
The security certificate presented by this website was issued for a
different website's address.

is this coming from windows defender perhaps?

In Win7 you can change 'User Account Settings' ( Start -> Search), but this
is not recommended, in the interests of security.

Don't feel too bad about the "active certificate thing". The federal
government has a plethora of web sites that have the same issue.

or like MS insisting that you have a proper license to listen to music YOU
created you yourself.

Not that I use wma stuff, have they done away with DRM now? I don't see it
popping up any more.
