    Windows Has Blocked Software Because It Can't Verify The Publisher

    I have AOL as the IP. Top taskbar>Community>Member Directory. I receive two
    boxes/messages.

    1. Windows Has Blocked Software Because It Can't Verify The Publisher
    Name: SWflash.CAB
    Publisher: Unknown Publisher

    2. Internet Explorer Script Error
    An Error Has Occurred In The Script On This Page

    Contacted AOL. Advised system does not show computer on line. Obviously It
    was. Described problem. He said to contact Microsoft.

    Please advise.
    Robert

    Re: Windows Has Blocked Software Because It Can't Verify The Publisher

    The first error means that the software or file was signed by a Certificate
    Authority that the computer did not trust or possibly that it was not signed
    at all. Software files can be digitally signed so that the publisher can be
    verified if signed by a certificate issued by a trusted CA. If not signed by
    a trusted publisher the application is much more likely to be malicious but
    certainly not always. There are two options in Internet
    Explorer/tools/internet option/advanced - security that set security for
    digital signatures which you can change, even if just temporarily, if you
    trust the publisher and want to install the application.

    The second error means that a script on the webpage did not run as expected
    and is not unusual to see and may be resolved by changing security settings
    for the web content zone or adding the website to the trusted Web Content
    Zone [use tools/internet options/security] if you do trust the website. I
    don't [an won't] use AOL so I am not quite sure how this was all generated
    by member directory access. --- Steve

    I followed the directions, and no go. Responds the same. Just a side
    note...I have 3 computers, and compared the security settings, etc.
    Identical. Only one acks as describes.

    I have found that if "allow software to run or be installed even if
    signature is invalid" is enabled then in situations like yours you should
    have the option to install the software after you acknowledge the warning.
    Otherwise if you can examine the certificate and trust it you can go to the
    certification path page, select the top CA in the path, select view
    certificate, if you trust it go to details page, select copy to file, select
    name and path on your computer and save it. After you save it double click
    the .cer file you saved and select install to start the certificate import
    wizard which will install that certificate into your trusted root CA store
    which should keep you from seeing the unknown publisher message. -- Steve
