How to disable Certificate Error Warning in IE

Genellay this is not a good thing to do! But sometimes when you work in development environments you need to do this to keep the Certificate Error warning from coming up. In my case it was needed because the logout is actually a logout on several levels using HTTP-redirects to travell between them. This was made impossible by the Certificate Error warning page.

To turn the warning off, change the followin registry key to 0.

HKEY_USERS\<SID>\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings:WarnonBadCertRecving

Don’t forget to turn it back to 1 after testing though! Otherwise you are a bit unprotected.

    Ok, I tried this but all the values are already set to 0. I still keep getting that damned little box, right smack in the middle of each page. What if I just delete the reference to this in the registry?

      I haven’t tried it so I can’t say if it works or causes any troubles. Don’t forget to save the key first though (export) so you can restore it if your browser misbehaves.
