We are going to the internet through a proxy server.
When I try to access the internet on a Windows 2003 server I get the following warning.

"There is a problem with this website's security certificate"

I select Continue To Website (not recommended).

And then I continue.

I do not want this warning to appear everytime I go to the internet.

The certificate is not from a valid server or issuer. What is the website? is it all websites? I dont use a proxy but maybe it is using a cert for some reason. The cert needs to be from a valid source like verisign.

If you ever see a warning message in Internet Explorer v7's browser window:

There is a problem with this website's security certificate

It is recommended to report it to the website's support by contacting them.  They need to purchase a certificate for each Web server from a third-party provider. Or, the organization can install a Microsoft Enterprise certification authority in the Active Directory forest. Then, the organization can use this certification authority to generate a certificate for each Web server.

Internet Explorer 6 displays the warning message in a message window instead of in the browser window. In Internet Explorer 6, the user receives a message that resembles the following:
Information you exchange with this site cannot be viewed or changed by others. However there is a problem with the site's security certificate.

The security certificate was issued by a company you have not chosen to trust. View the certificate to determine whether you want to trust the certifying authority.

The security certificate date is valid.

The security certificate has a valid name matching the name of the page you are trying to view.

         If you dont want this warning anyway, Internet Options>Advanced> and disable by unticking "Warn about certificate adress mismatch". Then apply and OK

        Hi Johnson
                *As you know certificate warning in IE7 is a known issue and can be disabled by following my latest post (That is what asker want "I do not want this warning to appear everytime I go to the internet."). Your post and my first post was informational only.
