    Assuming one does https://IP:2087 or https://IP:2083 or https://IP:2096 to access the server.... one usually gets one dialog popup with the security alert, but...

    I just setup Windows 2000 SP4 and Windows XP Pro with Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 (latest Microsoft release) and found that I get the "Security Alert Dialog Box" (popup) once for every html element when I open Cpanel.

    That is, I have to click "Yes, continue" about a hundred times in order to see the CPanel home page correctly display.

    I went to the Microsoft site and there was Q831167.exe , reportedly to fix a bug preventing secure transactions. Tried this hotfix and got the same three hundred Security Alert popups.

    I uninstalled IE6SP1 (reverting back to IE5) and everything came back to normal.

    I know this is going to hit us badly when people begin upgrading to this tough release.

    In IE6SP1... in Tools, Options, Advanced I disabled these three:
    "Check for publisher's certificate revocation"
    "Check for servier certificate revocation (requires restart)"
    "Warn about invalid site certificates"
    And still got the popups. And did reboot those, and got the hundred popups again.

    Any help is GREATLY appreciated.

    The secure ports actually do not have a certificate assigned to them If I'm not mistaken (Correct me if I'm wrong). I recieve these same errors so you are not alone. So in all actuality, the errors will always be there.

    Well, getting the dialog once (which is the case using other versions) is okay and acceptable...

    But getting the dialog a hundred times to see one page is a quite different story (IE forgets that one okayed displaying the page in spite of the missing valid cert, so it pops up the dialog once for every html element).

    I've heard some customers have IE6SP1 setup and experience the problem on some installations and not on others.

    Maybe this has to do with Microsoft being slammed with a 600 million fine in Europe and being ordered to comply with fair competition rules. Maybe they had to repackage IE6SP1 in a hurry.

    In any case, I sent email to my customers warning them about this, so they do not expect us to fix IE6SP1, which is beyond our scope.
