All you need to do is re-issue a cert from your CA and install it using IIS or create a self-signed certificate an apply it to the ssl bindings on the site.

Are these users on your network or off it? If off, they likely can't contact the CA to validate the certificate.  If on, it may be the certificate has expired, or the CA is offline.

Thought for a minute this was related to hughesnet.com letting their Verisign SSL certificate expire.

I tried the  create a self-signed certificate an apply it to the ssl bindings on the site and the users on the domain are still getting the security alert issued by Site. I have found the cert under the certsrv in the revoked certificates. But when I go to IIS in the server Manager it is not there but there is a "Sites" certificate but with different thumbprint
