This article explains how to work around the following warning message when you try to connect to a secure website using Windows Internet Explorer:

There is a problem with this website’s security certificate. The security certificate presented by this website has not been issued by a trusted certificate authority. Security certificate issues may indicate an attempt to trick you or intercept the data you send to the server. We recommend that you close this webpage and do not continue on this website.


Also select the products and versions to which this article relates.

NPM 12.2 – EOL;NPM 12.3 – EOL;NPM 12.4 – EOL;NPM 12.5;NPM 2019.4


This warning is generated by the browser because the certificate is not generated by a trusted certificate authority. The warning is not from Solarwinds software.


This warning is because the certificate is not from a trusted certificate authority. The options to avoid this error are to acquire a certificate from a CA and use it on the website or use the workaround below on all workstations that access the web console. As a workaround, install the Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003 (Windows SBS) self-signed certificate on the client computer. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. In Windows Internet Explorer, click Continue to this website (not recommended). A red address bar and certificate warning will appear.
  2. Click the Certificate Error button to open the information window.
  3. Click View Certificates, then click Install Certificate.
  4. In the warning message that appears, click Yes to install the certificate.


  • In Windows Vista, the same problem occurs with self-signed certificates. However, the option to install certificates is not available unless you are running Windows Internet Explorer with administrator rights. To do this, right-click the Internet Explorer icon, then select Run as administrator.
  • When the client computer connects to a Web server that is running Windows Server 2003, the client computer reuses the CA certificate. The client computer is not using another CA-signed certificate.

Internet Explorer 10 ‘Continue to this website’ is missing option

By Ian Hoogeboom | March 28, 2013 – 11:40 am | January 14, 2019 Security, Windows

I recently upgraded to Internet Explorer 10 (Windows 7 64bit) and when I browsed a website with a security certificate issue: “ There is a problem with this website’s security certificate . », the « Continue on this website (not recommended) ». the option was missing!!!

The problem here is that Microsoft has restricted access to pages that use a key that uses less than 1024 bits for protection. Some Oracle products using websites (including Oracle VM Manager) still use it!

Oracle VM Manager with 512 bit key

Oracle VM Manager using 512 bit key

Browsing to the site (which must be done in https in Oracle VM Manager 3.2) results in the page without the Continue to this website option (not recommended):

There is a problem with this website's security certificate

There is a problem with this website’s security certificate

Restriction of less than 1024 keys

After browsing the Internet, I found a Microsoft Knowledge Base article on a trick to block the use of RSA certificates that have keys less than 1024 bits long…: http://support.

To pass all the text on this page to the command, you must unlock this restriction and, for example, set the minimum key length to 512; run the following in an elevated command line (cmd.exe ‘run as administrator’):

certutil -setreg string\minRSAPubKeyBitLength 512

Now the “Continue to this website (not recommended)”. he is back!

Go to this site (not recommended).

Go to this site (not recommended).

If you want to undo this change and revert to the default minimum key value of 1024 bits, run:

certutil -string delreg\MinRsaPubKeyBitLength

Best wishes !
