The three ways to disable the popup:

1) Have the user accept a CA cert for your site. Help Desk Nightmare.
2) Have the user disable the popup. Help Desk Nightmare.
3) Get the top-level-CA cartel to accept your CA cert in the list of ones
bundled into IE.

Yes, it's a cartel, and yes, actions taken by said cartel are at least partially
responsible for the pop-up happening.
