Assuming you mean IE settings\Advanced\"warn about invalid site certs"

In the registry
HKEY_USERS\"USER  SID VALUE"\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\InternetS ettings\WarnonBadCertRecving

Off value: DWORD: 0 (0)   On value: DWORD: 1 (0x1)

Thanks for the points glad I could help.

I continued to play with this after posting as I also wanted to be able to do this in a gp and have managed to create a custom adm template file for use with GPO's if your interested.

I cannot force this through GPO to all users.. only "enable" works,not "disable".
Is this a bug on 2k8 or something normal. I have  seen this subject on several forum with no clear answer.

Many thanks in advance
