Reporter: are you a mortal instead of an admin? And what settings does your w2k box have? I've run mozilla as a mortal but my machine isn't locked down against local users.
Hmm...no clue. Reporter, can you please try a new nightly build? 0.8.1 is old. Maybe the security guys have a clue here...

I discovered that when I purged neoplanet from my system that this problem went away. Having neoplanet around also seemed to prevent komodo from running. Additionally, if I had neoplanet running in the background and then tried to run mozilla I would generate the error...however If I ran mozilla first and then neoplanet mozilla would be ok but neoplanet would become unstable. It would seem they are in opposition.
I highly doubt we can do anything about this, but there's always relnote.
I'm guessing the problem is with Windows, maybe the registry. Authenticode is a Microsoft technology that we don't use. Since there's a workaround, I'm marking this WONTFIX.
