    Hello everyone, best wishes for 2010.
    I am trying to install a certificate so that I don't get the "There is a
    problem with this website's security certificate." message each time. it is
    the firewall's certificate (not ISA).
    No matter which store I install the certificate to, doesn't seem to install
    it. looking at the store after installation the certificate doesn't even
    exist.
    Is this a problem with Ie8?
    Thanks in advance

    Here is how I got it to work:

    1) Go to the website in question, http://xxx.yyy.com, for instance,
    2) Click through until you get to the Certificate error in the browser status line.
    3) View the cert, then from the Details tab, select Copy to File.
    4) Save to the desktop as xxx.cer, for example,
    5) Start, Run, MMC.
    6) File, Add/Remove Snap-In,
    7) Select Certificates, Click Add, My User Account, then Finish, then OK,
    8) Dig down to Trust Root Certification Authorities, Certificates,
    9) Right-Click Certificate, Select All Tasks, Import,
    10) Select the Save Cert from the Desktop
    11) Select Place all Certificates in the following Store, Click Browse,
    12) Check the Box that says Show Physical Stores, Expand out Trusted Root Certification Authorities, and select Local Computer there, click OK, Complete the Import,
    13) Check the list to make sure it shows up. You will probably need to Refresh before you see it. Exit MMC,
    14) Open Browser, select Tools, Delete Browsing History
    15) Select all but Inprivate Filtering Data, complete,
    16) Go to Internet Options, Content Tab, Clear SSL State,
    17) Close browser and reopen and test.
