Windows 7: NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID on Iron/Chrome

NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID on Iron/Chrome

Hi,
I've bumped into this issue 2 weeks from now and can't get it fixed. Chrome/Iron reports NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID on every SSL-protected website (google,..)
"Your connection is not private

Attackers might be trying to steal your information from play.google.com (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards). NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID"


and IE reports this:


Date/Time is set correctly
IE Settings reset attempted
DNS flushed/renewed
Services reactivated


Any idea how to fix this other than clean reinstall?

The websites may not be using a certificate authority that was considered "trusted" back when the browser you're using was commonplace.

Upgrade your IE version or get a new browser (I recommend Mozilla Firefox), and try again!

Edit:

Hi Alphire,
Odd that Google is reported.

Can you go
Control Panel >> Internet Options >> Advanced >> then Restore (botton right).

try google again,
If it still comes back blocked.
Would suggest you run an AntiVirus (HELL NO on your specs) scan
try eset on line and Malwarebytes (free)
Did you have anything weird happen 2 weeks ago??

This is most certainly an issue with just that installation. Drweb came out clean (thought so). My other systems installed from that same WIM image work fine.
Already tried IE reset, to no avail.

BTW, that system is running Win7 SP1 x64.

In case you didn't resolve the issue yet.

I would like to ask are you using any other web browsers? Do they got the same issue?

I found this guide, which used to resolve this issue for Google Chrome. But you may apply the same methods.

Fix Your Connection Is Not Private Error In Google Chrome

For example, clean up all cache & cookies.

The thing is to find out the scope of this issue to know if it's an issue with Internet Explorer only or it's on your computer.

I have seen this error issued by browsers when the security certificate has been deleted from the certificate store. Typically you would expect similar notification when using an alternative web browser.

Click on the icon adjacent to the address bar to see details about the certificate. Try this with a web page that you are able to access, and again on web pages where you are blocked by the browser. You might find that the problem occurs with only one certificate.
