Tip & How-To about Lenovo Computers & Internet

There is a problem with this website's security certificate

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.
6) Reboot.

The problem should now be gone.
