Windows 7: Paypal security certificate error

12 May 2013   #31

windows 7 premium home 64bit

Just for reference purposes: KIS 13 are using a 'sandbox' approach that has either been quietly upgraded/changed in the background or else it is a conflict with IE 10 to which I have recently upgraded; probably the latter, but once the problem was fixed we didn't bother trying to discover exactly why it happened.

Just for the record I started having this same "weird problem" I noticed the user never mentioned whether he was getting the same problem in other browsers. Odd from a troubleshooting point of view? Anyhow, I did have the same problem in all 3 browsers. IE, Firefox and Chrome... I couldn't log into PayPal, same problem with certificate, kept telling certificate was good for and would take me to that site instead! I tried other systems on the network, no problem so I knew it was specific to my computer. Dumped all the temp folders and apps (cc cleaner) and rebooted... still same problem...

Eventually I tried flushing the DNS? on a tip from a forum chat... about downloading some huge program... but essentially the pics were showing that it was doing an ipconfig/release and then /renew... lo and behold... so I tried that manually myself by going into command prompt myself.... and lo and behold.... it worked! :)

This "issue" has popped up more then once though, i.e. (twice so far...) thing I am trying to figure is what is causing it?... is a database corrupting? bad hd? (not likely) I feel it is software related... I use Alvira Personal (free version) because normally I find it compatible and (free of course) But you have made me consider it as a possibility, as it is constantly updating...

For what it's worth... for now I just go to Command prompt and ipconfig... /release then /renew

Certificate error on websites with "Lets Encrypt" certificate
I get a certificate error on every site that has a Let's Encrypt certificate. It happens in IE11, Chrome and Safari, so I'm assuming it's a Windows issue. I can still ignore the warning and proceed to the site, but it's very annoying as loads of sites use Let's Encrypt. Thanks for any...

Hi all, I keep getting these security certificates - at least that's what I think they are - pop up in my browser from my ISP. They warn me of bot detection, but there are no bots; I have even had a sup from tech support give me a whole list of things that might cause a 'false positive'. So,...
