    I don't normally have problems with IE so don't really want to change,

    I have had the same message before but not quite so persistently, I reckon Jim didn't pay some fees before he left the country:RollEyes:

    Hiya Si, I have had the same message before on other sites and have pressed "OK" but just wondered really what the dangers are.

    As for "invaders" you just never know these days .......it seems there are so many hackers out there:Angry:

    OK, I'll be serious for a minute Brian :Smile:

    The message would normally appear if the SSL Certificate is invalid or the site has an expired SSL Certificate.

    I've never had such a message in a browser but I have when using Eudora for e-mail, though with the option to accept the Cert details presented if it is a site I trust. Doing so has cleared the problem. If IE gives the same option then taking it should clear the problem.

    Thanks Graham, the message was coming up on my desk top pc but now I'm on a lappy no problem.

    When I go back on the d/t pc I will try clearing it with the OK button but if it then self destructs I will be sending you the repair bill!!!:ROFLMAO:
