Recently Internet Explorer 8 has started displaying the information bar on almost every web site I visit, with the following message:
To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has blocked this website from displaying content with security certificate errors.
So far none of the pages I'm visiting are even using SSL. I've tried the following suggestions from various web sites to no avail:
- check the system date and time – already set correctly
- reinstall latest root certificates update – done
- disable check for certificate revocation – done
- delete expired certificates – could only delete one
This is frustrating to the point where I'm having to use another browser, but I can't accept that it's not fixable. I'm using Microsoft Security Essentials if that matters.
