Win 10

Bitdefender Internet Security (newly installed)

 

Updated Firefox now Most sites not available (I believe they are all SSL). Receive message that either website was configured improperly or certificate has invalid signature. Tried 'no proxy' in settings, flushed..Nothing.

 

Chrome is working without issue. 

 

Ran ADWCleaner, MBAM, etc. No issues.

 

Any suggestions as to cause of problem?

 

Thanks

Could it be Bitdefender? Turn off 'Scan SSL'?

 

If so:

 

1) why is it only an issue on one laptop?

 

2) also, if I turn off 'Scan SSL' how badly am I compromising my security?

 

Thanks

Thanks for the reply.

It was a Bitdefender issue.

Arrived at work and opened Bitdefender Internet Security.

Disabled 'Scan SSL' - Now all SSL sites are again accessible.

Two questions- 1)Why did this problem appear on only one of my 2 laptops (same settings, manufacturer, model); 2)Is there serious risk in disabling SSL scanning?

Thanks
