I did it now. Pulled out an older hd I had and put it in this pc.....got it up and runnng...all was ok,
then I downloaded a couple "programs" to see if In could get rid of the slow dialup I had with the previous HD.
Used CCleaner and *gasp* did the wipe free space thing.
Now I'm REALLY in trouble. Trying to sign in to my yahoo mail, I get navigation blocked..security certificate no longer valid.
I tried sys restore, but only had one restore point and it didn't take.

So...please dont tell I have to download windows again...unless it's my only choice of course.

at present, winxp7 professional,sp3.

Is Yahoo mail the only site you are having problems with?

For a better explanation of security certificates than I can give you, read THIS:What does "There is a problem with this website's security certificate" mean, and what should I do?

If it is a Yahoo issue, reinstalling the OS won't help at all.

Could you please try IE 8?

Once you have done that, please RESET your Internet Explorer settings.

OK, I'll try it (IE8) if my slow connection that keeps cutting out will let me.

Reset? As in how/what?

No luck getting IE8.....not with my dialup problems. Tried twice over 3 hours last night...first try, was disconnected....2nd try..went for about 20 minutes, then just stopped...modem just stopped pulling kbs. Tiny monitors at bottom of page showed zero kbs....this continues to be yet another...and my original problem until I started getting these certificate errors.

Sorry...I tried, but sometimes just reaching this forum is a pain, much less trying 16 mb's for IE8.

Do you have access to another computer? If you do, download IE8 from HERE. Save the file, then burn it to a cd or put it on a flash drive.

You can use that to install it on your system.

Is your computer clock set to the correct time/date i've seen that cause certificate errors on my machine.

I was being naughty and turning back my clock to extend a trial then errors with security certificates started popping up so I sucked it up and bought the software and set my clock back to normal :thumbsup:

IE 8 is a window component so It cant be uninstallable IE is where you download system updates and such

I dislike IE8 so try firefox.

On IE 8 try to reset your IE setting as ReviverSoft has stated

Open the IE 8 ( you dont have to be online for this)
Press Alt it will open the file header box
Go to Tools
Go to Internet Options
Go to Advanced Tab
At the button its says Reset your Internet Setting
This will revert back to Microsoft originals configurations
click reset Check Delete Personnal Data Click Reset
