Step 2: To launch Control Panel without Internet Explorer, either search for it in the Start menu or press the Windows key plus R to bring up the Run dialogue box, then type “exe” and click OK.

Step 3: Access this section of Control Panel by clicking the Network and Internet icon and changing the view to Category from the menu at the upper right of the window. Internet Options can be accessed in the same way as in Internet Explorer by clicking the Tools menu in the top-right corner of this window.

Step 4: Go to Settings > Security > Trusted Sites. In the Add URL field, type the URL of the problematic website and click the Add button. Ensure that you are only supplying the relevant URL.

Step 5: After adding the site, go to the Websites section and uncheck the box labelled “Require server verification option (https) for all sites in this zone.”

Step 6: Close Internet Options, restart the browser in which you encountered the error, and verify if you still get the same message when you try to load the page in question.
