SSL Warnings for Gmail in Windows 7 only
I'm encountering an issue that has me stumped. Every week or two i'll get an error from all my browsers (IE8, Firefox 3.6, Chrome 4) in Windows 7 x64 saying that Gmail's security certificate cannot be trusted:
Even if I click through the warnings I can't seem to login (very slow). And it's not just Gmail, the issue affects all sites that use https.
The wierd thing is, I'll try accessing Gmail (https) from Ubuntu 9.10 (I'm dual booting) and I won't get the error in Firefox 3.6 and access is just as speedy as usual. Also, if I access Gmail from my other laptop running XP SP3 there are also no warnings.
Does anyone have any idea what's going on?!

Strange.. whenever i've seen this problem, its been because of faulty time settings.
In any case, certficates are site specific and this feature is meant to protect your security. In IE, you can also click on the bar to install the certificate.
You can get more info in the following threads.

Also, scan your computer with Malwarebytes antimalware (its free) to make sure its not malware at work.
