Windows 7: Can't log in to some websites?

Can't log in to some websites?

When I go to certain websites my computer won't let me log in.
I go through the log in process, and everything goes fine, but when I am redirected to the home page after logging in, I am still not logged in. I know it's not the website because they're forums and other people are posting. I also often get messages saying the websites security certificate has expired at almost every website i go to (even big ones like facebook).

Great advice, like always, Jonathan. In case it does not work, try logging in from another account. You can make one just to see if it is some sort of corruption with the account that you are using.

I just reset it and it still won't work.

By creating a new account do you mean a new account at one of the websites that isn't working, or a new account on my computer?

The one on your computer. If you are in an administrator account, make a standard and try to log in.

That message seems like it could be caused by a security program. What anti-virus and firewall are you using?
