Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

Message
There is a problem with this website's security certificate. Continue to this website (not recommended). Then when clicking on "Continue to this website" the site is redirected to res://ieframe.dll/ and displays the page: "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage".


Context
Windows XP with IE7 or IE8

Explanation
This is an security setting issue of Active Scripting to be disabled. By default res://ieframe.dll/ (about:internet) isn't in any of the Security Zones defined, so it is handled by the Internet zone. And by default active scripting for that zone is disabled and ie7 (or ie8) doesn't continue to go to the website.

Solution
Add res://ieframe.dll/ to the trusted sites or local intranet.
