SBS 2011 - Cannot connect to network workstation remotely through RWA

Cannot connect to network workstation remotely through RWA.  I  believe this problem is specific to my home PC running Windows 7 Pro SP1, IE 9.  The problem does not occur with other PCs at my home that are running Vista and XP.

Through RWA I can log onto the SBS 2011 webserver.  When I click to log on to a PC I get this message:  Message from Webpage -2147024894.

I have disabled script debugging and reset my IE 9 settings in the IE tools>IE options>advance tab.  There was no change in the error.

On the Win 7 PC, I have a .Net 4 update that continuely fails to update, which I wonder may contribute to the issue.  I could not find a MS fix for the update error.

Additional info:
This is a new install of Windows 7 Pro SP1 after a system crash and replaced HDD.  I have had problems with ownership and permissions which seems to be mostly resolved now.  Haven't had an issue for a week now.  This is the first time I have tried to log into a SBS 2011 since I rebuilt my system.

Have you re installed the remote certificate? I am not sure if it is required anymore in SBS2011, but I have had issues with that in the past.

It was not the certificate.  We have a 3rd party cert.   I added the site to trusted sites in IE 9 Security tab, and now it works okay.

Searching for answers I noticed that "trust" could be an issue, so I added the https://*.sitename.org  to IE 9>Tools>Internet Options>Security>Trusted Sites>Sites>Add.

I closed and restarted IE 9.  I was then able to Connect to the remote PC through the RWA interface.
