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?:

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