There are a is a website I need visit and download a program from, but I CAN’T access the website from my work computer, but I CAN access the website from my personal computer at home. The site has been added to the trusted sites. I can’t even get to a place to import a certificate. It stops at the “There is a problem…” part.  If I click on the “continue to website (not recommended)”… it doesn't change. I even tried the following:

Started IE->Then before going to the site I hit the F12 key
Clicked the ‘Browser Mode: IE9 tab and tried all of the lower versions of IE (No luck)

Your workplace has restricted access to the site, perhaps.

[The firewall restriction info: that others can access the site, which you mentioned.  :-)]

Can you access the site using another browser?

Okay.  Clearly it's a certificate issue then. See if the following site info helps?:

Ok… so I cleared out the cache again, restarted the machine and then tested. Still cannot access it from IE…even if in IE7 mode.  HOWEVER…. It works fine now in Firefox.  Weird!!!!!!!!!!

Try the steps mentioned in this link

But first make sure the proxy setting in IE are correct ...you can match it with another system.
