      • I am having a similar problem accessing my companies intranet that has not got a valid certificate (small company, minimal resources), this never used to be problem and on another machine running windows 7 and ie11 it isn’t an issue. I have tried every thing I have seen so far including the reg entry above and I still can’t get passed the error page to the site.
