Tip & How-To about Lenovo Computers & Internet
N.B. This problem may be related to Lenovo's Superfish malware.
If you are having trouble accessing GMAIL or Google when you get the following message:
There is a problem with this website's security certificate
on a Lenovo laptop and you have followed the advice about resetting your clock and it still does not work ...
I suggest the following
1) Remove the bundled Norton or McAfee anti-virus
2) Enable Microsoft Defender
How to turn on Windows Defender in Windows 8 and XP Vista and 7
3) Run a full scan.
4) You will see that Microsoft Defender will find and quarantine some Lenovo software that opens up a security hole (a man in the middle attack).
5) Have Microsoft Defender delete the offending software.
The problem should now be gone.
