Revocation Info for Security Certificate

Pop-up 'Revocation info for security certificate for this site not available.  Do you want to proceed?"  What causes this and can you change a setting to trust the site so the popup does not come back.  We also use a Sophos firewall and it seemed to start around that time.  PC is a Windows 7 Professional and user has admin rights.  Haven't had this issue with other users.

If you receive a security alert stating that revocation information for the security certification for the website is not available, it means the security certificate has been revoked or found in certification revocation lists (CRL). It can also mean that the security certificate is valid but the CRL distribution point is unavailable.
and also possibility of setting such as
Other reasons for the security alert are that your computer time or date is set incorrectly or the browser is configured to automatically detect a proxy server settings but no proxy server is configured.
Pls see more on the suggested means. There is mention to clear the SSL content, as well as getting the latest updated root certificate.

I also see that other sharing stated it is due to Java install that need to re-install. E.g. disable UAC as administrator and downloaded Java again.  Rebooted and enabled UAC after confirming that the certificate did not reappear.
