How to turn off valid security certificate warning

Can anybody please tell me how to turn off the "content was blocked because
it was not signed by a valid security certificate" warning?

This warning comes up with several trusted source websites that I use daily,
and I am fed up with this spurious warning.

Re: How to turn off valid security certificate warning

Windows version? IE version? Assuming IE7, is the most recent Root
Certificate update installed?

Re: How to turn off valid security certificate warning

Vista, IE7.

I don't know what you mean by "Root Certificate" thingy, but I imagine it is
installed as I have my computer set to download and install all updates
automatically.

One site I look at daily is this one if anybody wants to try themselves -
don't worry it is just a French local government site:

Re: How to turn off valid security certificate warning

Vista or Vista SP1?

Manually check for Windows Updates | If an Optional "Root Certificates"
update is available, opt to install it. Follow all prompts.

[Unfortunately, the problem /is/ with the web-page's Certificate(s).]

Re: How to turn off valid security certificate warning

Everything is definitely completely up to date.

Any workarounds to get rid of this annoyance? It serves no purpose at all to
me, because if I see it again I am just going to click through it.

If this is a necessary security message, Microsoft need to rethink their
security strategy as just interrupting browsing in this way with complicated
geeky messages achievs nothing at all to users like me. I already have UAC
turned off, I have "ClickYes" installed in Outlook to remove the dumb
interruption messages on that program.

Re: How to turn off valid security certificate warning

[To keep track of things, it helps immensely if you include all of previous
message(s) in your replies to the newsgroup. Thank you.]

"Everything is...up to date" does not answer my questions, Rich.

That being said, you could set Internet Explorer not to "warn about invalid
site certificates" but I would not do this, as it opens an unacceptable
security risk.

Re: How to turn off valid security certificate warning

Hello,

I do have all available internet explorer updates installed.

I will try that setting that you suggest. What are the potential risks? I
don't visit risky sites, and I have virus software - so am I really taking a
risk??

Re: How to turn off valid security certificate warning

I didn't ask if IE was fully patched, I asked if you were running Vista or
Vista SP1.

Yes, you're taking a considerable risk...

>>> I already have UAC turned off


....and disabling UAC wasn't the brightest thing to do either.

UAC doesn't bother me and I spend more time on my Vista machines than I do
on the WinXP machines.
