How to Disable Certificate Error Messages

by Brendan O'Brien

Your Internet Explorer browser gives you a way to stop those annoying certificate error messages. Those errors messages, which are the result of a website not having the proper validation code installed, can be turned off through the Internet Explorer security settings. Other popular browsers do not allow you to remove the error messages since they handle it automatically.

Launch Internet Explorer.

Select "Tools" in the main menu bar. Choose "Internet Options."

Press the "Advanced" tab. Remove the check marks next to "Check for publisher's certificate revocation" and "Check for server certificate revocation." Click the "OK" button. Restart your browser.
