Hi,
I keep on getting this irritating message "]revocation information for the security certificate for this site is not available", whenever i try to go to any secured site. I dont know what this is. Please let me know if this is also the reason thats preventing me from logging on to my yahoo messenger.

Its really very annoying.
Any suggestions??

Thanks,
Amit

Go into windows update and under additional software download and install root certificates. IE should not prompt you on a regular basis for certificates unless there is spyware on your system. I would try a couple of online scans

You can also download and install an alternate browser such as Firefox.

And how do i go into windowsupdate. I have run all the online scans and there was no spyware found. Could you let me know where is the windows update so that i can try that as well.

I have downloaded firefox as well but it also keeps on prompting for the authentication as well-same as IE.

Amit.

If you don't know how to get to Windows update that leads me to believe that there's a strong possibility you could be infected. Do you have automatic updates turned on for your system? Do you have Service Pack 1 or 2 installed? Go to your start button and select All Programs. Up towards the top of the menu should be a windows update entry or use this link

If this has never been done, it could take some time. Some updates have to install separately
It would take some time, but because you use banking and other secure sites, I strongly recommend you read the Highjack This preparation guide and submit a HJT log for review by one of our members
