Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
I have this same error message, but it's for major sites that certainly aren't having a certificate problem (like facebook and ebay). HOw can I simply turn this option off on my computer. I have searched for many answers on computer so far and have tried the following things: Changed Advanced Internet options, lowered security filters, turned off phishing filters, installed the security certificates of the websites that have the error, and added URL's to the "trusted sites" list. None of this has changed anything. And, after each change, I have closed the broswer and restarted it. nothing... Help!
If it happens every site you go to, check your date and time on your computer. If your computer's date is off by a certain amount of time, usually I have seen 1 year. In other words if today is 12/7/08 and your computer shows 12/7/07 you will see this error, for nearly every web site you go to.
I get this certificate error when i connect remotely to access my Exchange mail on my own 2003 server. I can't figure out what certificate it's talking about
I have another question regarding security certificates. It concerns a button that I see (when I view it in MSIE6.0) on the certificate, labelled "Install Certificate". Why is this button there? I mean, clearly, the certificate works just fine without having been installed (else the web page would fail). Is there any value to installing a web certificate? Is there any case where this would be appropriate???
hi leo ,
i read the problem which is faced by other when the access to the desire website because i also face the same problem , now i have one double will this problem prevent to install any new software for eg , i am trying to install the new version of yahoo messanger 9 but i cant do so , can u help me out ...
I tried to get on this website i usually go on quiet regular. I sign in but it keeps saying i am having a certificate problem. I couldn't understand what it meant. Somehow i've done something with the URL. So now its coming up: The requested URL/login/was not found. How do i sort this problem? I would be grateful if you could help me because i don't have a clue? And i need to get back on this site.
I get it on a select few...and in order to help a neice with a governement website (child support) I tried to find out why she gets this same error.
I get it too and my system is totally different than hers.
But also neither of us have trouble with the site when we use anything other than IE.
To me the problem is IE related whether its something I can fix or not.
Solution: Dont use IE if you get this error.
I use both Safari & Firefox often for this reason alone.
Its also one of the top reasons (that and UAC) that I will go Linux or OSX on my next computers.
my daughter trying get on facebook and bebo, it is saying security certicate and wont let her sigh in, whats could be the problem

I changed the date on my computer and WOW! that fixed the certificate problem for me. It's an old post but, Thank you Rachel.
I have that problem on our Company's webmail exchange server ("not issued by trusted authority" and "issued for a different website's address") I have talked to our IT dept. and they can not (or don't want to) change that.
I have tried adding the domain to my trusted sites and to my intranet sites, all to no avail. Surely it must be possible to bypass this for ONE site????????
I have also tried group policy editor, but did not find any suitable option.
It is really ridiculous that I have to click this link every time I need to access my work email! This needs an easy workaround by Microsoft especially for those IT workers who need to access their Intranet stuff remotely.
To post a comment on "What does "There is a problem with this website's security certificate" mean, and what should I do?", please return
