Security problem with https sites
Hello friends!

Whenever I try to open any secured site i.e. htttps site, my browser shows a screen which says "This connection is untrusted and to continue, it asks me to add an exception". This is happening in all https sites including banking sites. This never happened earlier and all these sites opened normally till yesterday. I even tried different browsers bit the problem is the same.

Then I tried to open the same site on a different PC connected on the same network and the site opened normally. This means that the problem is just with one PC.

What exactly is happening? Can this be because of some virus attack or is this normal and safe?

Please help.

Is that a warning from Firefox? If not, what browser are you using?

The first thing to check would be that your computer's time is set correctly.

Also, please edit your profile to put your computer specs in the computer specs field rather than in your signature as that is what that area is designed for. Thanks.
