    Problem:

    Every time i log on to a secure website (a website that is secure) say like my banks or a credit card company or any kinda of website with secuirty protocals my internet explorer pops a message saying


    Security Alert!

    The Cetificate was issued by a company that you have not chosen to trust..


    How do you get it to trust and or how do you get it to auto download the certificate??

    To always trust a site, you add it to the Trusted Sites Zone in:
    Internet Explorer -> Tools -> Options -> Security Tab -> Trusted Sites -> Sites

    eg.
    https://www.mybank.com


    To turn the pop-up features off:

    .....Options -> Advanced tab

    Under the "Security" options at the bottom

    Uncheck the following:

    1) The first 3 "Check for..." options
    2)The last 3 "Warn..." options
    3) In IE6 only:
    Enable Integrated Windows Authentication
    (does anyone know what this is all about?)

    Note: It will only be one of these that needs unchecking,
    but seeing I always keep them all unchecked,
    I'm not 100% sure which the exact one is . . . ;)

    All I know is that they're all extremely annoying :D


    Note: IE Options are also accessible via:
    Control Panel -> Internet Options
    Or by Right Clicking the IE Desktop icon -> properties

    Ok i figured out where you were talking before.. I uncheck everything they all the secured sites stop showing..

    So i wnt back and pin pointed it to the SSL 1.0 and 2.0 features.. If i have them on i get the messages.. If i have them off i cant get on any website..

    any ideas on that?

    Ok i got what your links said. One Question. What happens if u think you are missing certificates?? Is there a way to reinstall IE6 and possibley that might solve the problem because i would assume that the primary certificates would be pre installed in IE6 or something along those lines.

    SOLVED


    i tried to uninstall ie from control panel (add remove components).. Then IE6 install file i downloaded before i uninstalled it. It went thru set up and was erroring out because of cetificate stuff. Then i tried to manually delete the folder in c:\program files\internet explorer.. Then install that IE6 setup file i downloaded.. Same thing with Errors.. So it came down to just reinstalling (upgrading) win2K over the version of Win2K i had.. All wors now..

    In short i just installed windows 2000 over windows 2000 and any certificate files or any any digital signatures that were missing or currpot are now fixed..
