I have a device on my network that forces the use of ssl to connect to it but doesn't allow you to install a secure certificate on it. Therefore, whenever you connect via IE, you get the certificate error screen and an option to continue. I would like to turn this warning off for this site on my work computer, especially since it is located behind our firewall. How is this done in IE7? Thanks.

You have to go to tools-->Internet Options-->Security-->Trusted Sites.
Add the website under this portion of IE7 Security. This may fix it for you but I am unsure.

What is the exact error?  Errors can range from the site not maching the name in the certificate to expired certificates.

You may also want to install the certificate in the certificates store (normally in Personal) especially for self-generated certificates (i.e., those that do not have any Root CA).

I have attached a screenshot of the error. I believe it is a self-signed cert. I will try to install it in the personal folder.

For some reason I am unable to install the certificate in the Personal folder. It says that it imports fine but just doesn't show up there. Any suggestions?
