How to get fix Certificate error on windows computer while using the browser

Well guys Certificate error is one of the issue that we face on the windows computer while using the browser and this can be due to various reason
#Browser Hijack
#System Infection
#Corrupt certificate loaded on the browser
#windows time service not working properly

while dealing with such a problem all you need to figure out is that weather the certificate error is a genuine browser error or a face error generated by the malware or spyware

Now the question lies here is how to judge weather it a genuine error of fake alert and the answer is quite simple


Yes,Observe and see weather the alert at the browser more commonly Internet explorer is generated in a way to inform you to get a security product and generaly it would have an option like "Click here to protect your computer" or "continue unprotected"...if this is the case then definitely your browser is hijacked and it requires a cleanup use some good cleanup utility and manual troubleshooting to reset the browser and disable the addons

If you are getting a certificate error without any option to continue then its a genuine error and that is related to your Browser SSL and Security certificate check the internet option and remove if there are any corrupt Certificate

If this does not resolve you problem...then there is a simple solution.....!!!

Guess what........!!!!

Yes,Your system clock .
Adjust the system **** with the correct time and date and thats it your are all set to roll.....!!!

why dom't my bookmarks open....i get site not trusted

This is your browser warning you that if you continue you may not be on the site you think you are. This warning comes when your browser checks a certificate from the site to validate its identity. If he certificate is invalid or has anything wrong with it you get the warning. If you are storing an old certificate and the site has changed to a new valid certificate you will get this warning. for Internet Explorer, open your browser 'Internet Options' select the 'Content' tab, select 'Clear SSL state' button. Close the browser, open again and attempt to view the page. This will pull the current certificate from the site and validate it. If you continue to receive the warning, I would recommend not visit the site as you cannot validate it not being a spoofed site.

I can not log in with my face book something about a security certificate issue

First check the date on your computer. If the year is set in the past (like 2001) then the security certificate will fail.

Popular Web browsers - Mozilla's/Firefox, Apple's/Safari, Google's/Chrome, Microsoft's/Internet Explorer 8, Opera.
