This site's security certificate is not trusted

Q: This site's security certificate is not trusted

I use the Chrome Browser for my internet surfing. When I attempt to log on to the Federal Government's website "ebenefits.gov", I get a warning that states "The sites security certificate is not trusted". I tell it to proceed anyway and it goes to the Veterans Administration website where I can check the status of a disability claim I filed last year. With Firefox, you could tell the browser to accept the certificate once, and it never asked presented the error again. With Chrome, you have to do it every time you go to the website. This is a primary government site for the VA and DOD and I trust it. Any idea how I can get Chrome to accept its certificate as valid? Thanks for reading and sharing.

Preferred Solution: This site's security certificate is not trusted

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Am running XP Pro SP3 on Dell Latitude D820.  All Windows XP & IE updates have been installed.
Suddenly, I am seeing (Topic) appearing when I attempt to login to some websites, even one for software downloaded from this site (Sun Trust...).
Most disturbing is that the login to one of my investment companies is now showing the "..not trusted" pop-up.  This is one of the largest investment companies in the U.S., so I doubt that there is a problem with their certificate, while I could easily believe that my local newspaper (another "not trusted") might not be up to date.
I have Norton installed and updated and have run Hitman, Emsisoft, AdwCleaner & ComboFix without incident but also without the desired result.
Any ideas?

A:Security Certificate not Trusted

Try installing this update http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42092
It updates the list of root certificates on your PC (theses tell your PC how to recognise certificates that it should trust). The update is not installed automatically with other critical or important updates, so if you've only done those, you may have missed this one.

I am trying to install CA root certificate on Windows 7, IE 9.
Encounter error: "Untrusted Certificate".  "This certificate cannot be verified up to a trusted certificate authority."
I have tried to install the certificate to Trusted Root Certificate Authorities->local computer and import was successful. BUT on IE->Internet Options->Certificate->Trusted Root Certificate Authorities, I am unable to find this root CA on
the list.
On mmc->Certificates->Trusted Root Certificate Authorities->certificates, I am able to view this root CA.
I then restarted the IE and view the ssl site again but failed too, "Untrusted Certificate".
Anyone, any idea ?

A:Unable to Install Root CA Certificate - Certificate cannot be verified up to a trusted certificate authority.

May the following workarounds work for you:
Workaround 1:
Modify the Windows settings to allow the Update Root Certificate feature to update the root certificates automatically. For details, see the following Microsoft TechNet article:
Certificate Support and Resulting Internet Communication in Windows Server 2008
Workaround 2?
If the Update Root Certificate feature cannot automatically update the root certificates, you may contact the website vender to see if there is a hotfix can fix the issue.

First, I have reviewed the other posts with similar questions and noted that I can install the certificate into root certificates and most likely this problem will go away, some specifics:

1) When a client reported this error using a pop.secureserver.net on an outlook 2003 client, I just figured it was godaddy or the REALLY old Outlook client, but nonetheless, I went in to troubleshoot it and was convinced it was godaddy, but when I tried
to start my Outlook 2016 client on my Windows 10 computer on their network, I got the same error.  Two notes are important: 1) I use godaddy as well and 2) I used the same computer at a different client just yesterday without a single error message.
2) They use POP 995 w/ SSL & SMTP 465 w/ SSL to pop.secureserver.net & smtpout.secureserver.net repsectively
3) I called the company that manages their firewall and was told that everything was fine, but was sent a certificate from the firewall that might fix the problem.
4) The firewall company tells me they use a fortinet firewall

I have some questions that I'm hoping one of the experts here can answer for me:

I have several Windows 7 and 8.1 systems that can access the "Acronis Forum" web site without any problems. For some reason one system running W8.1 gives me the Security Certificate error when I try to access it. I can eventually log on but as soon as I try to enter a post it kicks me off again. Can someone please give me a clue on what happened to cause this error to start popping up. I don't think there are any other web sites that I access with this system that have this problem?

Thank you,

A:Site Security Certificate

What is the error? You may have to view the Certificate to see what is says is wrong.

Check the date and time on your PC, if it's off it can cause this. If the PC thinks it 2020 and the certificate expires in 2015, you'll get a warning.

I have Windows Vista Home Edition and use Internet Explorer 9. I stopped using my PC for a couple of months, as I had no internet access. When I resumed internet service through Comcast cable, as soon as I went online, I started getting security certificate warnings and errors at practically every site. Also, when I click on links in web pages, I get errors about the page not found, and it's been a complete mess. I have run virus scans and malware scans twice and all is well here. In desperation, I installed Reg Cure Pro to see if it would fix the problem, but it did not. Another thing that is happening is that I'll click on a link to a web page but the page that opens isn't for the website that the link was for.

I don't know what could be wrong. The last time I used my PC prior to restarting internet service, it was fine. The clock's date and time are up to date.

Any suggestions? Thank you.

I am trying to download the free trial version of PGP's security software.

When I click "Accept" after the software license agreement, it tries to redirect me to a secure site (to enter personal information and initiate the download I presume). But I never get there because apparently that site has an invalid security certificate.

I tried switching browsers.
Results are the same whether I use IE or Firefox.

I checked the time on my computer's clock.
The time on my computer clock is correct.

Can anyone think of anything else I might try?

Can someone else try to go to the download page to try to duplicate the results?

Here is the direct link:

If you prefer to browse to it yourself, go to the main PGP page (pgp.com). Click on the link at the bottom of the screen that says "Evaluation Software"
Then click on the third choice:
PGP Desktop Trial Software (Desktop Client Only)

If anyone else can duplicate the security certificate error, then I'll know it's their problem, not mine.

Thanks in advance for the help.

A:PGP's own site has invalid security certificate?

I can get to the download page using Opera 9.63 but get what I assume to be the same message as you;

"You tried to access the address https://woext.pgp.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/Trial.woa?accept=on, which is currently unavailable. Please make sure that the Web address (URL) is correctly spelled and punctuated, then try reloading the page.

In Internet Explorer, when I get a certificate error, if I continue to the web site, I can then view the certificate to see what was wrong.  However, obviously it would be preferable* to see the certificate
before I make the decision to go to the site.  Is this possible?  I'm sure I could use another browser that does this, or maybe use the F12 developer tools, or write a program.   But I'm looking
for a normal-user way to do it.  I think it used to be possible in Internet Explorer, but this might have been 6.x or even earlier.  Or even
way earlier.  Yep.  I'm that old.  I believe this feature is not in Edge either...unless I'm just missing it.  But I'm using ie11 right now.

Facebook buttons and links are embedded in so many websites, that any user who has EMET 4.0 installed will get the alert when generally surfing the web. This alert does not mean in this particular case that there is a problem with Facebook or any hijack or divert is taking place. All this “EMET detected that the SSL certificate for *.facebook.com is not trusted” means is that the rule checking the certificates inside EMET has expired on 30 December 2013. It does not mean in this particular case that the Facebook SSL certificate has expired or that anybody is intercepting or diverting your secure SSL connection to Facebook.

There are 3 cures to stop the EMET detected that the SSL certificate for *.facebook.com is not trusted alert message:

By far Cure 1 is the safest to do. All that option 2 does is delay the warning until the new date you set.

1.Update EMET 4.0 to 4.1 by going to Microsoft EMET 4.1 download and download and install EMET 4.1. This installs over the top of EMET 4.0 and retains any specific rules and settings that you have configured yourself.

2.Open up EMET 4.0, click on TRUST ( CONFIGURE CERTIFICATE TRUST) –> Click on the Pinning Rules Tab –> Under Rule Expiration for FacebookCA you can change the rule to expire next month or later and the message will go away. You can set it to when the YahooCA rule will expire on 3/13/2014 if you like and you won’t rece... Read more

Which tab do I click on,like which "tab" I click on to add Yahoo messenger into a trusted site. And how do I get the messengers address to copy into the "Trusted Site"?
Which line (s) do I check to enable active X?
How do I only allow Y-messenger to use cookies.
Please help me, I miss my friends

I receive continuous trusted site requests from the following:

http://ad.reduxmedia.com, ad.suite6ixty6ix.com, ad.media-services.net, ad.tlvmedia.com, ad.e-viral.com, ad.funky.com and cdn.adbabylon.com.

I've run Malawarebytes and Avast. Avast identified and removed several issues but the problem continues.

When the trusted site requests pop up, also have a dialogue box that asks if I want to restore previous session or go to the home page on the internet - even though I am not trying to get on the net. Windows lockup and the system has to be shut down by turning off the computer.

My operating system is XP. Please advise what should be done. Thank you!

MicrosoftAS shows that 0catch.com is being attempted to be loaded to trusted sites. This happened just as I was uninstalling IESPY-AD and installing IESPY-AD2. This has happened a couple of times since and eg. this page wont load without being refreshed as Spybot message comes up saying 'Spybot has blocked Avenue.A Inc' and page is blank??????

Although privacy report shows cookies being blocked eg.247media.com AdAware shows that they are getting through or so I think.

Here is my HJT log - any advice would be very much appreciated - thanks.
