IE7 Certificate Error connecting to CV EVA mgmt server?

After I start IE7, when I first connect to the Command View EVA management server, IE7 gives me a big warning about Certificate Error from the host.
How do I convince IE7 that the certificate error from the specific server can be ignored now and in the future?

What is the warning??? Is it something like "There is a problem with this website security certificate".

We might try to resolve this issue but IE7 is not supported on CV EVA 6.

Exact warning message would be much appreciated.

" There is a problem with this website's security certificate.

The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority.

Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept any data you send to the server.
We recommend that you close this webpage and do not continue to this website.

Continue to this website (not recommended). "

Then I click "Continue to this website", and everything is typical Command View EVA after that.

I presume the problem is IE7 trying to be too clever. And this seems to be showing up as a common problem when accessing web sites of local servers. I was hoping someone else had already been annoyed enough by it to come up with an IE7 fix, before I cross-post to the Windows forum.

What the Microsoft KB did not mention is, I had to close all my browser windows and restart IE7 to clear the flag on the certificate.
