I am at my witís end to resolve a major issue I have with Windows Vista: when I try to use the browser to purchase items on-line, I frequently get ‚Äúcertificate has been revoked‚ÄĚ with no option allowing me to bypass it and go through with the action.

I have gone into Internet Options/Security and tried re-setting the security as low as it will go, to no avail.

I even had this happen when I tried to sign up for Instant Messenger Ė I downloaded everything, careful to use the version recommended especially for Vista, but when I went to establish a screen name, I got that ‚Äúcertificate revoked‚ÄĚ message.

The sites I am having the problem with are not fly-by-night merchants Ė it is places like Amazon.com, etc.

******************

It is a few hours after my post and I, on the advice of someone tried the following, but the problem is now worse than ever - I can't even log into "My Google" homepage!!!

∑ On the Security tab, reset each of the zones to their default level.

∑ On the General tab, in the Browsing History section, click Delete. On the Delete Browsing History window that opens, delete your temporary internet files and also your cookies. When you do this, you may find that on some sites you need to reenter your username and password.

∑ On the Content tab, click the Clear SSL State button to clear the current certificate state.

Close Internet Explorer and then restart it.

Please see this information about IE7:

Also, make sure your computer's date and time are correct.

FireFox is an excellent alternative browser to use:

I went to the site you mentioned, but the error message I have is slightly different from the one shown - the message I recieve does *not* have the option to "continue to site", so I have no way to open and allow the certificate. Aargh!!! :huh:

Sorry, I wasn't indicating that the certificate message was the same. Did you follow all of the instructions to
see if there was anything that helped?
