I'm getting a message, repetedly, which tells me that there is a problem with the site's certificate, on all sorts of sites!

This was never the case until recently when my MOBO had to be disconnected

I would cut and past the warning here but the "paste" option seem to not work.

Can anyone help me out, please???

Louis, thanks for the response!

I would like to show you the actual message! Do you know how I can copy and past to here???

I can "copy", but, for some reason, I can't "paste"

Thanks
Rui

I think that changing teh date worked!!! That is incredible!!!

Please explain why the date is important to the warning.....I'm "beyond curious"!

Good news :thumbsup:
Security certificates are issued only for certain period of time. If not renewed, they'll expire. If your computer has a wrong date, it'll see some web sites certificates as expired and it'll issue a warning.

I don't know why your computer data was incorrect, but keep an eye on computer's date and time. If it doesn't keep correct date, it may be time to replace CMOS battery.

The MOBO was disconnected recenlty to fix the heatsink retainer breacket. Could that have been a factor? For some reason it has a 2008 date, which I think was when I got it!

I wil assume that the sites are safe ( I've been on them many over the years ).

Where is the CNOS battery?

Lastly, I came across many, long ways to, supposedly "fix" the problem but you had the simplest of the simple, Broni!

I was glad to help :thumbsup:
I can't know what exactly they did to your mobo, but there is a good chance, they removed CMOS battery to avoid damaging it.
That would explain wrong time.
As I said, watch the time and a date for a few days. If it keeps up, you have nothing to do.

The settings for computer BIOS are stored in special memory called CMOS. A battery backs up the CMOS, so the computer's essential settings are retained when the computer is turned off.
