SSL certificates popping up

SSL certificates are popping up again and again, in each of the browser I use. Here are some of the screenshots

In chrome


In opera.

Does this help in any way

First, make sure you have the latest windows updates. Also, check your time, date, and time-zone settings.

You can view your certificates (all) by typing certmgr.msc in your start menu search and press enter:

However, unless you know exactly what is supposed to be there, it won't do you much good. Did this problem just start? Have you made any changes that might explain it? Try windows update, then time settings first, if no help, report back. A Guy

It just started out of nowhere. I checked the date and time setting they are correct. I Have set to synchronize with time.windows.com

Also sometimes my connection doesn't obtain a HTTPS ip, but it is resolved if I obtain a new ip. these SSL error also only pop up at times only.

Perhaps try this:

Start> In search box type cmd> Right click on cmd.exe in results above and choose run as administrator> Type in the following, pressing enter after each

ipconfig /flushdns

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /renew

Note the space after ipconfig abd before /

It was ok for a few days now it's popping up again sometimes. I even tried it in Linux Mint, but SSL error is also shown there.

Can you post an address that causes a certificate popup so we can try it and confirm this is indeed not a bad certificate causing this?
