Hey, so everytime i try to go to reddit it gives me this error :

 

Your connection is not private

Attackers might be trying to steal your information from www.reddit.com (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards).

 

NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID
 
 

www.reddit.com normally uses encryption to protect your information. When Google Chrome tried to connect to www.reddit.com this time, the website sent back unusual and incorrect credentials. This may happen when an attacker is trying to pretend to be www.reddit.com, or a Wi-Fi sign-in screen has interrupted the connection. Your information is still secure because Google Chrome stopped the connection before any data was exchanged.

You cannot visit www.reddit.com right now because the website uses HSTS. Network errors and attacks are usually temporary, so this page will probably work later.

 

 

So, It still refuses to work...does anyone know what i can do for this?

 

thanks

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
 
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
 
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
 
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
 
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):
 
post-33068-0-86653600-1480692866_thumb.j

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

Check to see if you date and time is correct.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
