    Blackboard Web Conferencing

    'Your security settings have blocked an application signed with an expired or net-yet-valid certificate from running'

    Is this a program running on your computer or on the web?

    I downloaded Blackboard Connect and hope to open something from the internet

    You could try whitelisting it on any antivirus programs you've got open.

    Applications often have a certificate attached, which shows which developer created them, but if your file is missing its certificate then your security software might be treating it as a threat. If you tell it that it's safe, it might let it through.

    If that doesn't work, you could try changing your settings in the program to allow files to run without a secure certificate, if it'll let you do that.
