    Certificate security error warning in IE

    In Internet Explorer, my site gets this security warning:
    "To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has blocked this website from displaying content with security errors"
    Also, each time you call up a new page an annoying bleep goes off! I have a valid certificate in the correct name and my hosting company have assured me its set up correctly. Can anyone see what I have done wrong with my site or point me in the right direction?

    Thanks,

    warning

    I get a warning with Opera too.
    - The server's name "www.google-analytics.com" does not match the certificate's name "www.google.com". Somebody may be trying to eavesdrop on you.

    You got me worried there for a minute. Just checked that URL and it is correct. Also you inadvertently put me on the right track! It should say "https://ssl.google-analytics.com/urchin.js"
    not
    "https://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js"
    as I had entered it.

    Anyway the result is my site is safe in the eyes of IE (and presumably Opera) so thanks for that!

    Jason.

    Could just drop google-analytics garbage entirely.
    Logic without the fatal effects.

    Not a big fan then I take it? And why not?
    I have used other stats packages before but didn't like what was on offer from my current host. If anyone has got any better suggestions for this sort of thing I would love to know as I am a bit of a novice

    Now back to this IE issue. Everything is cool with the url within the code of the Google Analytics script but now I want a 'Share on Facebook' link. This puts me back in the same situation. Does anyone know the best way to implement one of these buttons on a ssl page. The problem with my e-commerce site is when a shopper adds to cart and then goes back to index page the URL prefix remains https hence causing all this IE " this site is displaying unsecure items" nonsense.
