Specs: windows xpsp3, AMD 64

For the past two weeks now I have been getting security certificate not valid errors on all site, ebay, paypal, all banking, Microsoft.com, everywhere that require a ID and password. I have checked system clock, run RegCure, PC Shield Deluxe, Disk cleanup, Check Disk/f, I have been able to work around by self signing etc. I know it is not the sites because after viewing the certificate dates they all have months left til invalid. I have tried to get help from two other sites nothing has worked. Do anyone here have any advice, would greatly appreciate it!

Wild Guess! Maybe your clock is invalid. Try resetting it to a different date/time. Then reboot and set it to the correct date/time.

What browser are you using? Have you tried another?

"I have already check clock date!

Sometimes clock problems don't show up in the display. I suggest that you try what I suggested in reponse #1.

I have changed date/applied/rebooted. reset date and time still nothing. It has the same problem whether I use IE7 which I upgrade recently and Firefox 3.
I am using a Hot Spot 98% of the time and PeoplePC the rest but we do not have fiber optics where I live so I am lucky to get 28.8.

So you're having the problem with both browsers? Does Firefox prompt you to add an exception to accept the Certificate?

when I try to go to PayPal....
[ www.papal object.com: 443 uses an invalid security certificate] The certificate is not trusted because it is self signed.

I also get this...
secure Connection failed

sgw.ngxo.trinity.ebay.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because it is self signed.

(Error code: sec_error_ca_cert_invalid)

* This could be a problem with the server's configuration, or it could be someone trying to impersonate the server.

* If you have connected to this server successfully in the past, the error may be temporary, and you can try again later.

Or you can add an exception…

Lemme guess. Firefox 3? That's normal. Just add the exception.

Jennifer are you serious!! I find it hard to believe any reputable company would put out a software with that kind of obvious bug!! Unless they are trying to go out of business. That does give me an idea, I will research FF3 and see what it's prevalent defects are.

Of course I'm serious. Would you rather the browser allow all certificates? That's more of a security hole than requiring an exception, which is no different than allowing certain connections through a Firewall.

Even adding the certificate, self signing, allowing does not stop it from asking the next time I go to the same site. Also I use ebay Turbo lister and it will not upload to the site because of the invalid security certificate thing. I find it hard to believe everyone is having this same problem!
