I have a Windows HP Pavillion dv 1000 running Windows XP Home Edition. I recently did a complete system restore and wiped the computer out and have been trying to get all the necessary programs reloaded back into the system. I am making great progress but when I connect to the internet through Google Chrome I keep getting SSL Certificate error messages and it wil not browse nor run any programs in the google chrome, but I can close out go to internet explorer and browse to any where I want to go. I am a student and this browsing option is very important to me to complete assignments. My school also suggests using the Chrome Browser over the IE browser. What could be causing these errors and how do I fix them?

Hello -

Your quote is a bit unsure of if you Need Chrome browser or would Like Chrome browser.

 

Personally unless the computer is school supplied, and had Chrome installed as the Default browser, there is no point. And schools do not supply XP systems these days.

Is it Fully Updated and running XP SP3 for a start ??

 

If it is a Microsoft operating system, chances are it came with Internet Explorer set as Default browser.

 

To add extra programs that are quite often not required, can cause more problems than you want.

 

What was your parents reaction when you said the school wants you to add extra browsers ??

They would provide extra help if this was a Genuine request on an XP system -

 

I keep getting SSL Certificate error messages and it wil not browse nor run any programs in the google chrome

Why change on an older computer/Operating System that is only valid for one month ??

 

HP Pavillion dv 1000 were from 10 years ago (9 years if you got a late one), so just use it as it is.

 

 

Plead for an Updated computer for Birthday / whatever is your best hope. :kiss:

I have a feeling that not all windows updates are performed such as the updating of root certificates from Windows Updates.

Yes Cryptodan I also feel like the computer is not getting all the updates that it needs to get back to proper functioning capacity. I know we are quickly approaching the April 8 deadline and I am unsure of what to do to hndle this transition. I have a desktop that is running vista but I adore my laptop no matter how old it is. I had to do the system restore because of some not so nice so called friends that got a hold to it and then I found out they were using it for some serious illegal activities and they were arrested for these activities. I felt to avoid all or any issues for myself would be to completley wipe it out. 

 

I do not know what to do. 

 

And to reply to you Aussie Addict I am a 45 year old student not a high school student so my parents are not a factor and could trully care less and the birthday plea is out I am lucky to get a card at my age if you know what I mean. Just looking for some help from people I thought might have an answer for me

I did this as I had this problem with this laptop several years ago and it was found by my Tech Support at the college I attend. Thanks so much for your help though

Yes try that first before the windows repair all in one tool.

And in reply to your private message, get this lap top updated to the very latest windows updates and then run the Windows 7 Upgrade Adviser tool and see if it will run Windows 7, if it will not then it will not run Windows 8.

Before you begin :
Before scanning your PC with the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor, be sure to plug in and turn on any USB devices or other devices, such as printers, external hard disks, and scanners, that you regularly use with the PC you're checking.

quietman7, thanks for those links! I've been having various "SSL" warnings with Google Chrome on all of my computers (all has 3 or more OS's with different brands of security). 

 

This just may be what the doctor ordered.
