    Have been on 2 sites in the past week that have stopped working when an error message came up, telling me that the site's certificate was invalid, that another site might be trying to impersonate the site I was on, etc., etc. One site I was on at the time was FB, and I could not get to the FB site until I reset my cookies. Today it happened again while on the members.directbuy.com site. I could no longer get to the site once this error message started coming up, and clearing cookies did not help this time. I checked your forum, and there in a closed thread I found info on the problem, which helped me end this error message (thank you!!!) (y) Here's what it said to do (it worked!...I can now get back to the site I was on, and it's back to functioning normally!):

    1. Click Start and select Control Panel .
    (Windows XP Classic View - click on Windows Start button and
    select Settings and Control Panel ).
    2. Double-click the Internet Options icon.
    3. Select the Privacy tab.
    4. Under Settings , click Advanced button.
    5. Check the box Override automatic cookie handling under Cookies
    section in Advanced Privacy Settings window.
    6. Under First-party Cookies , select Accept .
    7. Under Third-party Cookies , select Accept .
    8. Check the box Always allow session cookies .
    9. Click OK .
    10. Click OK to exit.
