Q: Internet explorer has blocked this website from displaying content with security certificate errors This thread is locked from future replies

The phrase "displaying content with security certificate errors" is confusing to me. Is it saying that thecontent has certificate errors? Isn't  the certificate associatedwith the website itself, not with content. So, assuming that the warning has to do with the website's certificate, what should I look for as being in error? I display the certificate by clicking the lock icon (security report). Nothing I see there indicates any sort of error or problem. Under Certification Path/Certificate status it shows "This certificate is OK."

The site is defined as trusted un Tools/Internet Options; however, at the bottom of the page it shows a green check and "Unknown Zone (Mixed)". Is this merely another manifestation of the certificate problem?

Nothing I've read in the IE help nor in any of the discussions here tells me how to fix the problem.

I'm new to IE8, having just installed today. Several other sites get this same error message -- all of them ones that had no problem under IE6.



Tip: If you have not done so already, do Steps #1 through #3b in my post above (timestamp Sunday, December 19, 2010 4:32 PM) ASAP to avoid any further issues.

Tip: While Root Certificate updates are installed automatically (via Automatic Update) in Vista & Win7, WinXP users must check for & install these updates manually. Very generally speaking, a Root Certificate update is released every 3-4 months or so (e.g., in 2010, an update was released in late May, August & October).

I downloaded and ran the Norton removal tool and the Mcafee removal tool with no apparent collateral damage.

For my future reference (and for others who might access this thread) -- is it accurate to say thatkb931125 is probably what fixed the "blocked content" problem and thatI may find it necessary to run that again in the future?

Thanks again.


Did this solve your problem?

I ran the optional security update kb931125 and re-booted. The site where I initially was getting the error message is now OK.

And is  Cumulative Security Update for Windows Internet Explorer 8 (KB2416400)listed

It is listed now and very well may have been before but I just wasn't looking in the right place. I had been looking under C[umulative] and under I[nternet Explorer] instead of W[indows Internet Explorer].

Whew! Dodged the Norton and McAfee removal bullets!

PA, thanks for your help.
