Every time i go to any website like www.logmein.com, www.dbs.com.sg.
When logging into Microsoft hotmail, i also prompt the following problem.
IE7 show the following:

There is a problem with this website's security certificate.

The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority.

Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept any data you send to the server.

And i was not able to login at logmein.com using IE7 as it show the above message.
But for the firefox, i was able to login but was not able to
connect to the remote computer. It fail everytime i launch a remote assistance.
When i attempt to connect to remote computer using logmein, i prompt me that the certificate
from the remote computer is different from the issue certificate from the remote computer.

I re-roll it back to IE6 using add/remove program

i am not able to login to any secure website using IE6 and Firefox.
Eg: logmein.com, gotomypc.com and all secure website
It show that there is a error in the certificate that it is not trusted and other maybe attempting to fool you.

i reformatted my computer about a week ago, everything was fine untill i download a root certificate from microsoft update in the custom not express, the error start to show.

i also did a repair using Window XP SP2 CD.
i even find the ie.inf file located in Windows\Inf folder and right click the ie.inf file and click Install on the context menu. But it still does not solve the problem

I would gladly thank for your help in solving my problem

Hello eggway,

Here's my thought. Given that the problem began when you installed that root certificate thing, I would suggest a system restore choosing a time and date just before you installed that file. You will need to redo any other software or computer updates as well as redoing any software installations or uninstallations that you have done between then and now. Everything else will be fine.

Let us know if that works.
