I cannot get my https pages to appear without a warning like "Parts of the page you are viewing were not encrypted before being transmitted over the Internet"
We have verified a certificate with Thawte? Tried to have all parts of the page have absolute https links for images, css etc.
I am sure there is a simple answer but from completing search after search, it appears that I am the only one who has come across this problem.

But you said they are. (?)
It's not so much absolute links. Make sure everything is coming from a secure location. For example, if your secure location is a virtual location, you can use this:
By virtual location I mean often yoursite.com and yoursecurehost.yoursite.com are often the same physical location. So if you use /images to link your images and call this page via [yoursecurehost.yoursite.com,...] the images will be linked from [securehost.yoursite.com...] on the secure server, [yoursite.com...] on the non-secure version. But it's the same physical place (sometimes.)
The same is true of external CSS, if you have an [yoursite.com...] for a background-image, changing it to /images will fix this.
The other thing to look for are external items called by scripts or objects. An example is Flash or adSense/google analytics - Google has secure location for their urchin.js, see documentation. It doesn't have to be **your** secure location, but it has to be a secure location with a cert. The codebase of Flash (if you use it) also has a secure location.
If all else fails, use the process of elimination - start deleting stuff on a test page until the warning goes away.
