Been having problems with access to certain sites. I thought it may have had something to do with my Vipre
program. Eliminated that, and changed to Microsoft
Essentials. Am still getting notification re: certificate
error and cannot get to sites I need. Can you guide me?

Is your computer date & time set correctly ?

RE: certificate error?

Are you using Firefox? It can be a sensitive as to certificates.

I don't recommend it, but the certificate monitoring can be turned off.

Tools>Options>Advanced>Encryption tab>Validation button>Uncheck "Use the Online Status Protocol......">OK.


RE: certificate error?

have you tried clearing the cache on your browser do a full clean out of cache, cookies etc it may have something bad stored in the cache.

RE: certificate error?

Thank you so much. Yes, the date and time were incorrect.
When I corrected them, everything fell into place.

RE: certificate error?

Sounds like you might need a new battery on your motherboard. They typically last about 5 years. It sort of a large button/watch type battery that keeps you clock in time when your computer is turned off.

usually quiet easy to replace if desktop tower style computer. big silver coin battery. pretty cheap

RE: certificate error?

OK...thanks for heads up. I will keep this post. Happy
holidays to all.
