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

Is the time and date appearing correctly on the system? If you enter the BIOS setup at boot (usually an option shown on screen for a few seconds, such as Esc, F1 etc), and the time and date shown are incorrect, e.g. gone back to something like 01/01/2000, the CMOS backup battery has probably gone flat and needs to be replaced. It's usually a CR2032 button cell on the system mainboard.
