Hi All,

 

After a short power outage I am now getting this security alert message on my machine:

The security alert message Information you exchange with this site cannot be viewed or changed by others. However, there is a problem with the site's security certificate 

Help please!

 

Thanks a lot

Make sure the computer have the correct time and date, because incorrect date/time can influence the certificate check.

And if this problem re-occurs - change the CMOS battery. This is what keeps the system clock running when the computer is shut down, and if it is on the verge of dying when you boot you can get a completely random date and time set.

 

I don't know what the life of a certificate is, but an error of a few minutes on your clock doesn't matter, probably a day or two is not serious, but more than that all of the certificates your browser tries to check will come up 'invalid'.

Just to pile on :)...I had this happen a couple of weeks ago after an abrupt power outage of a few hours...upon rebooting, I paid no attention to the date/time and started receiving similar notifications for Google.com.  Resetting the date/time in the BIOS resolved it.
