I'm trying to fix a classmates Windows 7 laptop that she desperately needs for school. I'm having a hard time figuring out what is going on with her internet explorer. Every time I try and load a page ( Google, Yahoo etc..) I get a error that there is a problem with the websites security certificate. Now, I can click "continue, not recommended" and usually get through but some sites, like the college home page, just come up as web page not available. I've tried turning off the firewall but that has not worked. Any suggestions?

The first thing I usually do is check the system date and time.

 

After that check to see if she's setup to use a proxy server.  I've seen this cause the same problem as well.

I found that the time and date were in fact off, so I corrected that but I'm still having the same problem. Can someone guide me on configuring the proxy server?

Ok, so it was the date after all. When I first changed it, I had it set to 2013. Now that I have it correct, everything works fine. Thanks Trakeen!
