    The problem with certificate error it's probably connect with a patch microsoft for IE?

    I tryed update IE9 but always the same things


    If i try with firefox it's working well

  • I have been battling certificate error in secure websites for quiet a while. I have IE8 and Windows XP Service pack 3. I have tried just about all the suggestions online including Microsoft support. I even reinstall IE8 and all Windows Update. Made sure the date and time was correct. Nothing helped except one of the replies in one of Microsoft support page. I stumbled upon a suggested link to update the Update Root Certificate pack:


    After downloading the update the error went away in all secure websites.

    Hope this helps.

  • I tried everyone's suggested solutions but they didn't work so I did a System Restore and it worked.  No more "There is a problem with this website's security certificate" messages.
