    Default Pesky Security Alert won't go away

    Just recently, Windows XP Pro has started popping up these "Security Alert - Information you exchange with this site cannot be viewed or changed by others. However, there is a problem with the site's security certificate ... blah blah blah ... do you want to proceed?"

    This often pops up on sites I regularly visit such as Hotmail, Ebay etc.

    I have gone into Internet Options / Advanced and un-checked "Warn about invalid site certificates" but still this damn thing keeps comin' back to annoy me..

    What I can't work out is why it's just started recently. I am running SP1 - have not upgraded to SP2 yet.

    When you're about to enter a security-enhanced site, you may get the alert shown below.
    Secure site message

    Security Alert dialog box

    To turn off this warning, click to check In the future, do not show this warning before you click OK.

    When this alert pops up there is no button to click that says "In the future, do not show this warning before you click OK."

    All there is are three buttons "YES", "NO", "VIEW CERTIFICATE". This is after the piece that says "Do you wish to proceed".

    Are you sure? Its not a button as such and its not down by those options - its usually mid window and its a tick box.
