I keep getting this Security Certificate error with IE10 on many websites, including this forum at times. My date and time are set correctly and up to date. It has only been happening for a few days.

Any ideas?

Hi Gary,
Very odd I'm not seeing any popup messages on my end ?

Right, I'm sure it's something with my PC. The MS link wasn't helpful since it claims all certificate errors are the fault of the website, I'm using the correct URLs, same ones I've used for years.
This may be cause for concern.

Quote:
A website's certificate provides identification of the web server. If the certificate has an error, it might indicate that your connection has been intercepted or that the web server is misrepresenting its identity. If you're absolutely positive of the identity of the website, you know that your connection has not been compromised, and you understand the risks, you can choose to go to the website. However, we recommend that you don't ignore a certificate warning.
Guess some advanced scanning is in order. I'll try the no add ons mode too.

One offering from the link was to go to Internet options/ Content section/ Clear ssl state,
Others are to sync with internet time,
You might even try safe mode with networking to completely rule out third party issues,
Cheers.

Clearing SSL was no help.
I am synced with an internet time server.
Safe Mode with Networking seems to fix it.

How do I run No add ons?

Win key+R
Paste this into it,
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -extoff
Most likely won't work Norton is now compatible with 64 bit

Pretty much a third party conflict if safe mode with networking is working,
Is your Norton expiring ?
Cheers.

Norton has 127 days left.
I ran Adwcleaner and nothing was detected.
Gotta shovel 10"-12" of snow now.

Reset it?

Hi,

I don't use Internet Explorer much these days but when I did use it as my first choice of browser sometimes the easiest way to resolve issues was to reset it.

Tools> Internet Options> Advanced> Reset> OK.

Or

Control Panel> Internet Options> Advanced> Reset> OK.

IE security settings will then be reset to their defaults.

About the only issues with that approach is that you'll get asked to re-confirm certain settings like default search provider. accelerators and so on. Plus it will re-start with add ons disabled.

It would be a good test to see if you get the same certificate errors.

If it seems to be working fine then just re-enable any add ons that you still need to use:

Tools> Internet Options> Manage Add Ons.
