When performing an app test I kept getting temporarily redirected to an auth page that was HTTPS and then directed back to the page I came from. This was frustrating as i was using burpsuite and i kept getting the certificate error message.

I only used this VM for app testing so decided to stop Internet Explorer from nagging me about certificate errors.

Open regedit and navigate to the following location:
HKEY_USERS\{SID}\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings
In my case I was using Administrator so the SID ended in 500.

Now create a new DWORD value and name it WarnonBadCertRecving. Make sure the value is set to 0 and your all set. No more nagging.

Side note: If you want to disable the XSS filter look here.
