    IE8 and and IE9 Certificate errors

    Hi, Not sure if this is quite the correct part of the forum but here goes anyway.

    We have 2 different sets of netbooks samsung windows 7 and dell windows vista. When I go to

    https://www.itslearning.com

    or

    https://www.samlearning.co.uk

    I get invalid certificate errors galore. Why is this only happening on only our newer netbooks ? If I go to any other laptop and login then it works fine. we are talking 32 laptops that dont work.

    My first idea was the date and time on the netbook but that is correct on every one.


    Thanks

    I just built a new Win7 workstation and that had loads of certificate errors. Seems like Windows might not be updating the root certificates. I got round it by downloading the rootsupd.exe from here ...

    Download: Update for Root Certificates [November 2011] (KB931125) - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details

    What happens when you go to the websites? When I ran it there wasn't any visible evidence that it was doing anything, however, it cured all my certificate errors.

    https://www.samlearning.co.uk/ - the certificate is for https://www.samlearning.com

    Other then that - run Windows Updates.

    Just tested this, the samlearning.com site works fine, with a .co.uk I get the certificate error. I would check the URL you are using. There is also an odd way of deploying certificates to Win7 via WSUS if I remember correctly. Its not as straight forward as for XP
