invalid security cert

Q: invalid security cert

Getting an invalid security cert. warning on chase.com. over the last 3 days on a home computer but not on other work computers at a different location. ?

Preferred Solution: invalid security cert

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.)

Ran a full scan on my comp and it says it detected 5 dangerous events. The option to disinfect was grayed out (I use Kapersky Lab) - I only have quarantine as an option and when I picked that, it asked me to choose what file to open. Eh? Does the fact that my antivirus already detected the events mean it's been handled or I need to do something? Because earlier a security certificate window kept popping up, asking me if I want to install it. I didn't, of course, and worked up the courage to delete all the files the antivirus detected as threats.

....That may have been a stupid move, y/y? The window is still popping up but not as frequently. Is it even a related problem?

If I click on "GMail" from google.com, it claims bad security certificate through "a248.e.akamai.net"...happens usually but not every time.

Also had similar problems with yahoo mail (doubleclick) and bank website (also doubleclick) in the past.

Computer is suddenly sluggish and freezing, requiring hard reboot approximately 3x per week (which is very unusual for my computer).

Could not finish GMER scan thrice due to a "report to windows" error during scan (sorry, I copied error info....but then brilliantly copied Over it before pasting) but it seems to have fully run the fourth time.

Please advise, DDS follows.

No, I don't think it is possible to stop a chkdsk . It should give you a chance to circumvent the chkdsk before it starts.

My computer has been working fine. One week ago I upgraded from a 1T Seagate RAID 1 to a 2T Seagate RAID 1. I used Acronios to make a Clone and it seemed to work fine for the past week. I had rebooted it several times. (Note I have two computers essentially the same and am writing this letter on the non-problem comoputer)

I had just now downloaded the latest Windows Vista 32 update on the problem computer (On this computer it says it wants to download and install Update for Windows Vista (KB972036) So that is probably what was downloaded on the problem computer. Chkdsk seemed to be going on and on "replacing invalid securtity id wiith defaut security id," on the problem computer. I looked the chkdsk message up on the internet on this computer and found that it usually results in inablity to use the operating system. That exact thing did happen to me a year ago.

Out of fear that it was again doing harm I shut the computer down. Help what do I do now?
My thoughts are: BUT please correct me,
1) take the power cable off of the second mirrror drive so that it does not copy the errors.
2) Use repair install
3) If repair install does not work? Clone the Mirror drive with acronis? and start over?
4) Or can I restore from Acronis 11 not the image (which I think would erase some files recently created and not yet backedup) (Backing up was this weekend's job) would it restore the OS?
5) Other programs that I also have are:
a) Norton 360 vers 3.0
b) Powersuite 2009
c) ... Read more

A:Chkdsk replacing invalid security id with default security id

Continued thoughts"
7) Why is it that Chkdsk does this at times and can it be prevented somehow?
8) In order to prevent errors from the "C" drive of a RAID 1 being copied to the Mirror drive (Where chkdsk made the error and windows has not been openedd again yet) is it best to:
a) reformat the "bad drive" and let it be rebuilt by RAID 1? or
b) Using the cabeling make what was the mirror drive now the drive "C" and the old "C" drive becomes the Mirrow drive?
c) Using Raid 1 does it copy and make both the same or does it always make the morror the same as the "C" drive. I guess thatis the same as saying does it mirror both ways on only one way?

I'm using an Acer Aspire 4820TG, Window 7 Professional.

I have absolutely no idea what to do!

My laptop was working hours ago then it crashes. So it restarted. Then it asked me to check my disk. Suddenly this "Replacing invalid security id with default security id for file ######" appeared. It's been going on for hours and it's now on 270,00+. Should I continue this? I have no idea on what to do. Are my files will going to be corrupted? or my laptop will be long gone? I hope not. My final exams are still there and I have no backup. I want to reformat but still it can't.

I need help guys, please and thank you

A:Replacing invalid security id with default security id for file #####

I have not experienced this myself, but I have heard that it will tear up a Windows XP installation but for Windows 7 you should experience minor-to-no problems.

You still want to backup afterwards as a just-in-case. I'd be more worried about the laptop spontaneously crashing than chkdsk fixing the security ids.

Since this morning I've been having some quite weird issues. Firefox (both 26.0a1 and 23) spits an "Invalid Certificate" error at me for anything https. Some of the affected pages are loading slower than normal and Facebook, for example, is showing just plain text. All of this could point to the presence of a hidden proxy, which could be screwing up something, or whatever. I have Bitdefender installed, scanned today and it found what, 7 tracking cookies (big deal). MBAM is scanning atm. Will update with the results.

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;

The certificate has expired.

What can be done to get rid of this - is there a file missing from windows or is there some malware/spyware on the system.

Hello, About a month or two ago I had my computer cleaned of malware with the help of a user from a different forum. However, when I try to access certain sites (sites I know I can trust like google.com, gmail or facebook) I will occasionally (and frustratingly) be told that "this may not be the site you are looking for. At first I thought it was a fluke, but it seems to be happening much too often for that. I get the error on every browser I try to access the site with (IE, chrome, and firefox). When the site works on one browser, it works on all of them, and when it does not work, it does not work on all browsers. (when I click proceed as normal, I get an error or the site just doesn't load). Other than this, my computer seems to be working normally.I will attach a screenshot of the specific message I recieve (from firefox). I don't understand why a site like google would not be safe to visit, and I would like to know if a virus is responsible!Thanks in advance for all your help!DDS (Ver_09-12-01.01) - NTFSx86 Run by Jason at 14:19:18.00 on Thu 01/14/2010Internet Explorer: 8.0.6001.18702 BrowserJavaVersion: 1.6.0_17Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600.3.1252.1.1033.18.1022.352 [GMT -6:00]AV: McAfee VirusScan Enterprise *On-access scanning enabled* (Updated) {918A2B0B-2C60-4016-A4AB-E868DEABF7F0}============== Running Processes ===============C:\WINDOWS\system32\Ati2evxx.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost -k Dco...

Firefox has been acting weird lately, showing an invalid certificate error for pretty much anything https. Some pages such as facebook and soundcloud load only sometimes and when they do, they're completely broken. Bitdefender found nothing but a few tracking cookies and MBAM found 3 PUP.Optional.Conduit.A, which were already removed. So, uh... What do I do?
EDIT: While both Firefox 23 and 26 act like this, IE, surprisingly enough, does not. I also noted that every certificate is issued by Bitdefender, which happens to be my AV. Could it have screwed something?
EDIT 2: Oh well, Google, once again, saved the day. Turns out Bitdefender's SSL antiphishing analysis tool happens to screw with Firefox's security certificate validation.

I am subscribed to several security e-mails, with subjects like "Microsoft Security Advisory Notification" and "Microsoft Security Update Releases". Most of them can also be found here: http://seclists.org/microsoft/.
All these messages are PGP signed, which can be verified with the public key at https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/dn753714. However, I notice that the verification fails for about half of the messages.
For example, the message http://seclists.org/microsoft/2018/q3/7 validates correctly, but http://seclists.org/microsoft/2018/q3/2 does not. I see the same verification in my e-mail client for the original messages, so I don't think that the seclists.org
website has changed the original message.
Can anyone confirm that the signature of some messages is indeed invalid an if this can be fixed?

I've encountered a minor problem with my computer that started happening a few weeks ago. The date and time kept reverting to weird dates years back, and always to early times like 3 AM. Of course I thought nothing of it, changing it back to the correct time while also running several virus scans, all of which came up clean. Within a day or two however, it would always change back to its own date and time. Only very recently did I search for a solution to this, which was to uncheck syncing to the windows website or some other. Didn't change a thing.

As well as this, I've experienced a more severe problem that first happened a week ago. Upon opening my browser I was greeted with the message that Firefox doesn't recognize the security certificate...of Google. I soon found out that it didn't recognize the security certificate of any website at all. Ran a Malwarebytes scan. Clean. Ran an Avast scan. Clean. Super Anti Spyware scan, removed all the offending cookies. Yet the problem persists. At one point my taskbar changed to a Windows Classic style, and I have no idea why. As you can see, I'm pretty sure I have some sort of stealthy virus, but I could be wrong.

Every access attempt for any google site gets directed to a porn site! Same one every time. Can get to google groups through ask.com but when I 'sign in' to my account I get the following window message, "You have attempted to access 'www.google.com' however, the security certificate belongs to 'plesk' ??! Same happens for any google site using ask.com search. Adware, Spybot, and Avast virus scans come back clean, BUT 2 days ago i got hit by a virus, Sality.J and Hidrag? Those are now gone but problem continues with all google sites. Have contacted google concerning this but no reply. I'm using the newest version of Window XP woth the FF2 browser. Thanks for any help or suggestions!

Over the past week or so, I noticed that the security certificates for several established websites (Amazon, for example) have been coming back as invalid. I've also noticed that the calendars used by hotel websites have been returning errors even when a valid date is chosen. For example, it will indicate that I can't choose a date in the past, even when I have chosen a future date. I've noticed this to be the case using a variety of hotels website. I'm not sure if this is a browser or other problem. My computer is fairly secure and virus/adware free. Has anyone else noticed this?

Q: A+ cert

Hey, im just wondering if ne one knows the answer to this:
(since there are 2 parts to A+ cert.)
I took the old core hardware A+ test, 220-301, last summer, and i have school so i didnt take the other one. Now i want to take it the other half (OS), but there are new A+ tests now, so im wondering if i take the old OS test i still get the cert? Or is it useless? Or do i need to write both new ones?

A:A+ cert

Likely yes. Ask them. It all depends on whether they gave you a time frame by which you had to take the second test?
How much did you spend for the test taken? Did you pass well with a good score?

Hey all,

We've just set up a Cisco 3000 series VPN on our network, and are using an internal server here as the certificate server for the VPN clients.

Just one problem. I'm still fairly new to doing new things on Windows 2000.

So I've been going through Microslop's site trying to figure out exactly how to set up the certificate server here. But I haven't found anything which explains everything, or if I need to install something, (besdies Cisco's VPN client) on the client computers.

I've created a couple keys through Certificate Server, but have no idea how to go about using them, or how to view the keys like in NT, like;
You know, that big encrypted key.
So if anyone knows a quick explanation of this, or where to find a description of what I need to do, I will be forever indebted to you.

We have a working DA environment using a single server, we are planning to go NLB  and Multisite but MS advises not to use a self signed cert for NLS which we currently do use.
I have created a Web server cert for our NLS server following the below issued by our internal CA

I add the NLS cert on our DA server, click next and then go to apply the DA settings.
When I do this it says DNS name does not exist. I can create this manually before adding the cert but it gets removed. If I tick use self-signed cert the DNS name gets created automatically.
I can't understand what I'm doing wrong and why DA will not accept our CA issued NLS cert

Our Nessus vulnerability scanner has been flagging our computers with the following vulnerability: SSL Certificate Signed Using Weak Hashing Algorithm

Basically what it's telling us is that we need to upgrade the local Remote Desktop Certificate from SHA1 to SHA2.

These certificates are self-signed and self-generated by the local machine. If you look at the certificate you'll see that theIssued to: and Issued by: fields show the name of the local machine.

The question is: how do these auto-generated, self-signed certificates, which are currently SHA1, get upgraded to SHA2? Remember, these are not created by the local Enterprise CA, they're auto-generated by the local machine itself for Microsoft-branded software such as AD and RDC.

Looking for ideas/suggestions on how to do this.

I installed ATA with the self signed certs as i was having trouble getting it to work.  Now that I have it working i want to put a real cert on the management site.  What is needed to complete this?  

Do i simply go to iis and change the cert?  
Do i also need to change it in the configuration page where it references it by ip address?
When i do that, do i need to redeploy / update the gateways?  

I am on 1.6 as of an hour ago.  Please reference the version number you are familiar with in your responses.  I would imagine that they are the similar if not identical but i want to be sure we are on the same page.
