When I use either of my Win 7 laptops, I usually get a "Secure Connection Failed" warning as soon as I go online. (I only use them at public wi-fi spots). It reads in part:

- www.comsys.com:443 uses an invalid security certificate.
- The certificate is not trusted because it is not signed.
- The certificate is only valid for localhost.localdomain
- The certificate expired on 3/4/2010 8:23 am

When I "View Certificate", the Common Name is 'localhost.localdomain', and the Organization is 'SomeOrganization'.

I know that Comsys changed its name a while ago, so there's no such site as www.comsys.com. Could that be the only problem? If so, why does this pop up even if I'm not visiting their old or new site?
