Windows 7: Security Alert / Certificate Popping up

26 Oct 2017   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Security Alert / Certificate Popping up

1) Can some one tell me what this popup is about, what worries me is that it says something about a remote computer as if someone is trying to connect / hack into my computer?

2) Also is it a security issue to have posted this image?

3) I also got worried because i noticed that it says that my work group is "WORKGROUP" even though I have never intended to be part of any group to share files, printers, network connections etc

4) So why has this happened and how do i have the most secure/private settings for this?

Control Panel >> internet Options >> Advanced tab....restore advanced settings
