Hello

After a fresh windows install, 

I get warnings like 'your connection is not private' when I try to view webpages on Google chrome, and 'there's a problem with this website certificate' when using internet explorer.

Also, some webpages dont display very well, the pictures are missing and the text layout is wrong.

I set my clock to the right time, it was wrong, but I rectified it.

But I'm still getting these problems

I'm running windows 7 ultimate x64

 

Any ideas?

Thanks, the Venerable

Does the same thing more or less happen using Internet Explorer and/or Firefox?  After the fresh reinstall, what, if any, 3rd party monitoring and/or security programs were installed?  When the BC regulars [techs] appear in here, follow their advice, they won't steer you wrong  :)

Hi
Yes, same on all browsers I've tried

I don't thnk there was any third party software installed, it was just a standard windows 7

My browser wont play youtube videos either due to the security certificate being out of date I think it said.

but I've checked my bios clock, and set my windows desktop clock, and they are both correct.

Thanks

There is no need to bother with the desktop clock, if the BIOS clock is accurate.  If the date/time data is wrong in the BIOS clock, it will cause problems with Windows.

 

A need to reset the BIOS data multiple times...probably indicates the need to replace the CMOS battery for the system.

Of course...any time that changes are made in the CMOS/BIOS...the changes need to be saved (F10).

I didn't have to reset the bios clock, I just checked it and it was fine.

Only the desktop clock was wrong.


So perhaps it's not a bios issue anyway.

The computer is only about 4 years old so I think the bios battery is fine also.

Could any other issue be causing this problem?

Thanks

I decided to do another fresh install

It seems ok now.

I think I must have accidentally changed the clock time while I was setting up the OS, as the clock was wrong when I first got to the desktop.

I guess it must somehow have internally confused my system even though the desktop clock was corrected.

Thanks for the time and tips :)

Make sure you have chosen the correct region.  If you had the wrong region chosen it could have produced these results.
