Hello Marva,

Yes, this is correct that some websites you will find showing the message not a secure site. These sites are harmful sites, as they will infect the computers with viruses or malwares. In this type of situation we have to format our computer. For the convenience of visitors Google and other Antivirus companies like Macfee mark these websites as harmful. So in future please beware of all these type of websites.

Certificate error


A "certificate-error" occurs when you access a "secure-HTTP" site (one that uses the 'https://' prefix for the URL) and the "certificate" that the site is "secure" (namely that the site really is the site that it claims to be) is invalid. Certificates have a "start-date" and an "end-date" and certificates can be "revoked". If the certificate is for a different web-site ('web.site.com' versus 'www.site.com') or is revoked, or if the current date is not between the "start" and "end" date, you get the "certificate error" message.

What site did you try to access?

Windows security center


If this is your router and you've forgotten the username or password we suggest that the router be reset and then setup with a new username and password.
Default username and password
Before doing a hard reset on the router you may want to try the default username and password. While this is not the same for all routers, this may allow you access to your router.
Username: Admin or Administrator
Password: <Blank>, try just pressing enter or try "admin" as the password as well.
If this does not work and you believe the router is using the default username and passwords try viewing the default settings at routerpasswords.com
Sometimes when attempting to visit a secure website on your Windows computer, you will receive a message about a security certificate error.
You will have the option of whether to continue to the site.
Secure websites, such as an online bank or retail store, use security certificates so your browser knows that any financial or personal information you enter on the website will go the correct place securely.
Every error message does not necessarily indicate a security problem on the website.

Check your computer's date and time.
If they are incorrect, you will receive security certificate errors.
Click on the time in your taskbar, and set the correct time in the pop-up window.
Refresh the website where you received the error message.
If you receive a security certificate error message again, the problem lies with the website's security certificate.
Click the icon that looks like a padlock next to your browser's address bar.

Read the information in the window.
This will detail who owns the website, the site's verification status and any known information about the website's trustworthiness.
Compare this to what you know about the site you were attempting to visit.

Click "View Certificates, then "Install Certificates."
Click "Yes" at the security warning to install the certificate for the website.

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.

My AIM mail won't let me reply back! Please help


Is the problem with the Webmail service or a mail program? If the issue is the webmail, then it's an issue that I can't help you fix; it is on the server.

If you are using a program like Windows Mail or Thunderbird, first have you gotten a message about accessing a security site (to prove you are a real human)? That system has issues and you may need to clear the cache and cookies in your browser before going to that site to unlock the security issue.

Second: make sure you have your outgoing mail correctly set-up. It should have server name: smtp.aim.com port 587. You need your user name and password enabled but not the secure authentication or Connection security.

Finally there have been recent problems on the authentication side of AIM service. I'd seen messages that this problem was fixed but it may wtill have problems. http://twitter.com/aolmail has updates (usually limited to M-F).

I hope this helps.

(If you use IMAP for your incoming mail, you can have an easy work around if the Webmail interface is working. Write your outgoing message in your preferred mail program and save to draft. Login to the Webmail on your browser. Go to the draft folder and you should be able to chose either send message or edit and then send. If you use POP3, it's a multi-step process to cut and paste the message from the draft in a new compose window on the Webmail service.)
