Every time i go to the log in page on netflix.com it comes up with a certificate error. I've tried installing the certificate to Trusted Root Certification Authorities but it doesn't make a difference. Every time i go to log in on netflix.com it comes up still. It wouldn't be that big of a deal but i need it to work for a streaming program i use that allows you to access netflix and other things on any dlna device. Please help me get rid of this certificate error.

Hello and welcome.

Try adding the the site to the trusted site.

Open IE Click Tools => Options => click on the tab Security => Click the Green Tick that says Trusted sites => Click the button Sites => Enter in Netflix.com

Re-install Internet Explore 8
  • Please go Here (Click on the Blue link) and download a fresh version of Internet Explore 8.
  • Uninstall the version of IE you have installed now, to do so follow these steps:
  1. Click Start
  2. Click Control Panel
  3. Double click Add or Remove Programs
  4. Scroll down until you find Internet Explore
  5. Then click Change/Remove, and follow the prompts.
** Please Note: If you are unable to see IE8 in Add or Remove Programs follow these steps:
  • Click Start
  • Click Run
  • Type or copy and paste, into the text box:
%windir%\ie8\spuninst\spuninst.exe
  • Then Press Enter **
  • Restart your computer.
  • Install the fresh version of Internet Explore.

Now that i've uninstalled it im having another problem. In order for me to finish the install process i need to restart my pc for pending windows updates. But everytime i restart my pc, when i get back to windows update it just says i need to restart it again. I've restarted my pc a few times now and it still says i need to restart it. It's pretty much in an endless loop right now. What's wrong with my windows update?

Your initial certicicate issue may have been adressed here -> You cannot install some updates or programs

For the time being, it might help clear the installer issue to try this part of that link:

Clear the Windows Update temp folder:
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


1. Click Start, Run, type: cmd /k and press Enter

2. type net stop WuAuServ and press Enter

3. type cd c:\windows and press Enter

4. type rename SoftwareDistribution SDold and press Enter


5. type net start WuAuServ and press Enter


Reboot

I tried that it didn't work. I'm still stuck in a reboot loop. Is there anyway to bypass the windows update and just install ie8, because this program relies on internet explorer so i can't use it at all right now.

In XP you can turn OFF automatic updates.

Left click Start, Right click My Computer. Left click Properties, Left click Automatic Updates and then deselect the service.

If turning off automatic updates doesn't help, these 2 links I believe outline the method to stop the process of running the update after boot (a stuck install).

Startup Program Loading - specifically, wininit.ini

Error Message: A Previous Program Installation Was Never Completed

I've tried disabling windows update and that didn't make a difference. Also the first link you gave me was rather vague, i didn't really understand what you wanted me to try. And the second link only outlines solutions for older OS's not XP.

The Registry in 2000, and XP and Vista is identical for all practical purposes.

Thus, the direction would be under the 'Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000' heading.



However, do as you see fit.

I tried that and i also had no luck. One thing i did notice though is that whenever i try to browse to windows update in my browser it says page not found, this could be what's causing the problem in the first place.

Do you have these problems in any other browsers? Please try one of the below (both are free):

Firefox
Opera
