    Default Problem with IE8 not loading one website but loading another website.

    I am using Windows XP Pro SP3 with IE8. At present I am getting an intermittent blocking message across the top of the internet window and am unable to load a particular website but am able to load up another website. I have already reinstalled IE8 with no change. Can anybody help? TIA Spooky

    IE8 is getting a bit ancient now, install another browser and try that. I think firefox still supports XP. Otherwise maybe give us some details of the message & website.

    Yup I think quite a few sites will stop working with IE8.

    IE8 is the new IE6, you're doing us developers a favour by not using it

    The message I am getting is as follows "To help protect your secuirty Internet Explorer has blocked this website from displaying content with security certificate errors." This website is www.Trademe.co.nz.
    The website that I cannot access at all is www.postcrossing.com.
    As an aside from this I was able to access www.postcrossing.com from my tablet when I was in range of a wifi connection.

    It's out of date. Use another browser.

    Make sure your PC date is set right - it messes with security certificates if it insn't.

    XP is to Old, well the IE8 is anyway.

    Just tried the links on a XP, IE8 opened Trademe, but the other site -- Cant connect, yet using FF on the same XP it works fine.

    Thank you for the pointer. Have tried and yes Trademe loads up with IE8 and Postcrossing loads up with Firefox. Problem solved. Thank you all.
