Ever since I rebuilt my computer last week, (new board, processor, graphics card, power supply and case) all three of my browsers have gone security crazy. No matter what site I go to, even my bank, I get the "This site has a bad certificate, it is not recommended that you proceed, blah, blah, blah". And, every page has the little yellow bar at the top that says, "I.E. has stopped this site from loading content that may be harmful (blah, blah) click here for option. Even when I allow the content to load sometimes it still does not display correctly. The crazy thing is, it is all three browsers, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari. Oh, this is my desktop running Windows XP SP3.

Make sure your computer date and time are correct.

One of the first things I did once this pc was online was to sync with the server. But just to be redundant, I went to control panel/date and time/time zone and sync-ed again. No, that did not work. Are you sure you are a Bleeping Computer advisor? I have been to this site before and had non-advisors try to play like they are the real thing.

Thats not possible. Look under Broni's Avatar and you'll see his member group is a green color and listed as BC Advisor. Members are not able to modify their member group to impersonate another group or staff. Another place to check is on the main forum page at the bottom is a legend of all the different colors and their member group designation. If you click on the BC Advisors green color it will take you to a list of all the Advisors member names.

If you suspect a member is acting as a Bleeping Computer staff member fraudulently, send me a PM and I will verify that members status for you.

Here is what I get when I try to navigat to any page, that means ones that I have already bookmarked and ones I get from a search (Google) even when I type the address directly into the address bar. Although I did get a surprise when I went to my work email by typing http://calendar,smarthealth.com, it went directly to the sign in page, but after I signed in got pages that had the yellow bar across the top warning of blocked content, click here for options, blah, blah.

This is pissing me off. I am trying to upload screenshots, but your site wont let me.

The firefow page has a yellow icon of a guy with a book or something,

THIS CONNECTION IS UNTRUSTED

You have asked Firefox to connect
securely to ecampus.phoenix.edu, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.



Normally, when you try to connect securely,
sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are
going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.

(arrow)I UNDERSTAND THE RISKS

There is also a button that says "Get me out of here"

Something is wrong.
Boot to BIOS and see, if your computer date is correct there.

Date and time in the BIOS are correct. Going to bed now. I'll try to pick this up again in the morning before I leave for vacation. Thanks for helping, I sent you a tip via PayPal.

Thank you :)

Next thing, I'd like you to try is to restart in Safe Mode with Networking and see, if you have same issue there.

My bed time too.

I'm pretty much stumped here.
I'd probably start a new topic in "Am I Infected?" forum to see, if your computer is clean.

I've seen this problem before on my friend's laptop. The only way to fix the problem was a reformat I believe.
