This is simply letting you know that comcast.net has not updated or chosen to participate in a certificate program that microsoft uses.  It is nothing to worry about with your email site.  If you go to unknown websites I recommend that you do not continue if you get this warning.  Only way to get rid of it is to reduce your protection on the internet which I would not recommend.

Please tell us your operating system (Windows 7, Windows 8, Mac OS X 10.8, 10.9 etc.)

In general, certificates will fail if your computers clock/date/time is incorrect. Check your settings and try again if necessary.

Sec error expired certificate


This sounds like a "Security Certificate" issue, preventing access to a secured server or website. If that is correct you wil need your security or certificate provider (vendor) to update or re-issue your certificate to allow access to this site. Usually these types of sites are Education, Government, Business-2-Business "Clouds", 3rd Partty Access apps for resellers of IT/Telephony, HR/CRM or financial. A certificate will not be hard to acquire should you have a valid reason.

Hope this helps!

Certificate error on web site.


This is basically an Internet Explorer 7 Website’s Security Certificate problem! You have to self-sign the certificate on the client computer or add the URL manually to the trusted security zone. When you are trying to access a secure web page, you receive the warning message:

"There is a problem with this website's security certificate. The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority."

Or

"Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept data you send to the server."

To fix this issue, you can follow either of the methods:

Method 1:

You have to install the Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003 (Windows SBS) self-signed certificate on the client computer. To do this, follow these steps:

  • In Windows Internet Explorer 7, click Continue to this website (not recommended).
A red Address Bar and a certificate warning appear.
  • Click Certificate Error button to open the information window.
  • Click View Certificates > click Install Certificate.
  • Click Yes, to install the certificate, when warning message appear.

Note: For Windows Vista users, right click on Internet Explorer icon. Select Run as Administrator.


Back to top


Method 2:

Add the URL to the Trusted Sites security zone:

  • Open Internet Explorer
  • Go to Menu bar > Tools > Internet Options.

    tool.jpg
  • Click Security > Trusted sites > Sites

    sec.jpg
  • Type the URL in the Add this website to the zone text box > uncheck Require server verification >Add > click OK

    trust.jpg
  • Click OK to exit.

Now you have added the URL successfully into the Trusted Sites security zone.

Certificate error I cannot get into any email accounts


Hi,
Please perform the following steps.
This error message appears because the security certificate was issued by the University itself and not by an authority acknowledged by Microsoft.
To solve this problem, for most webpages you just have to install the "CA Certificate" of Ghent University in your browser.
For certain websites, such as https://zephyr.ugent.be, you need to import its own certificate:
Click on "Certificate Error" next to the IE7 address bar and then "View certificates"
Click on "Install certificate..."
Click "Next"
You will be asked where the certificate has to be stored. You can use the default setting and click "Next".
Click "Finish"
Confirm by clicking "Yes"
On your next visit, you will not see the error message again. Hopefully it should work.. Thank you

I am getting a message on inter net explorer to shut page down as security certificate has run out


A security certificate is just the websites seal of safe browsing so to speak. It's like their validation document to say their website is protected and safe and they are responsible for the content on the page. These certificates expire every 90 days or so and must be renewed by the webmaster. Sometimes they fall behind.
You can adjust your settings so you won't be notified.
If you click on tools, then internet options, on the security tab, lower your meter to medium. Same on the privacy tab. Then in advanced tab make sure Use SSL3.0 is checked and not 2.0. On content tab hit clear ssl state. You should be fine now.

When I click on my mail icon, I get this message: the security certificate presented by the website has expired or not yet valid.


Yes if it's a web based email server then you will have to "accept this certificate" to access your email from within your Browser.
