IE7, Vista: Navigation Blocked, certificate error

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Jeffrey Kaplan, Apr 16, 2008.

  1. On my newly rebuilt Vista Ultimate system, IE7 is giving me this error
    message every time I try to use a web page with a security certificate:

    | 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.
    |
    | Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or
    | intercept any data you send to the server

    I did not have this problem before I wiped and reinstalled the system.

    I checked the installed certificates, and the usual suspect trusted
    root certificates are there, including VeriSign, NetSol and Microsoft.
    No such problems when viewing the same sites from IE7 on my XP Pro
    system.

    A discrepancy I noted in one of the sites, my bank, is that when
    viewing the site from my desktop, its certificate is issued by
    VeriSign, but when I attempt to view it from my desktop, the
    certificate claims to be self-issued.

    EFS is on, encrypting "C:\Users\<my_login>". By work requirement, I
    need to encrypt at least some of my user directory

    Cancel this request, I found the problem and it was external to IE.
