I'm running Windows 8 with Avira, Comodo Firewall, and WinPatrol. I have been suspicious of my Windows update for a while but had no good info to go off. The best evidence I had before was a "glitch" in WinPatrol that allowed me to see some otherwise hidden software entries for a day, such as:
I describe the how I ran into these here
So today I downgraded from Secunia PSI (checks to make sure your software is up to date etc.) from version 3 to version 2 as about a month ago it simply stopped allowing me to open the interface.. I have to admit I like version 2 better anyway.
Here's the thing:
Secunia PSI patched 147 programs, but tells me that Google Chrome 25.x "25.0.1364.172" is at "End-of-Life" and has 4/5 threat rating.
If I try to install Chrome, I get this message:
Installation failed.. requires update to Windows.. via Windows Update
That's just fine, but its been 10 days since my last update, and it says "no updates are available", I'm thinking I may have a malicious Windows Update.. this website: https://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/help/windows-update has untrusted certifications..
and this website: https://update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-us connects without any certificate warnings, but there is a questions mark if I click the little lock icon in IE, and If I click on "Microsoft Update" I get [Error number: 0x8007007E]
I've used IE10, Firefox, Comodo Dragon, Opera... can't get a secure connection, this is common on many websites, even google.com has a "?" next to its security thing in IE and a "!" under "basic constraints", saying: Subject Type=End Entity, Path Length Constraint=None
How can I update Windows and get https to work on most websites?
