Unable to load up Wikipedia, in Opera, IE and Chrome. However, it loads up no problem in Pale Moon (Firefox variant)


This problem has been plaquing me since I did a clean install of Win 7, 31 days ago.  Most updates are installed except ones that is rolled back after installing.


Opera Plugins: Ghostery and HTTPS everywhere.


Your connection is not private

This server could not prove that it is en.wikipedia.org; its security certificate is not trusted by your computer's operating system. This may be caused by a misconfiguration or an attacker intercepting your connection.

You cannot proceed because the website operator has requested heightened security for this domain.

To me it sounds like the root certificate isnt trusted.

It might be because your Win7 installation doesnt contain the latest certificates.

Have a look at this article:
It seems you can download a tool to resync the list

(Scroll down to the blue download buttons almost at the bottom)

PS: I would also try with https everywhere disabled just to see if that is causing it
