ok guys is it only me that is experiencing websites that have their certificates expired. almost every site that i am goiing to has an expired licence.

some sites include:
facebook.com
google mail (because of tihs i cant log into my gtalk)
alibris.com
siteground.com

and many more that i dont remember.

is this just coincidence that so many sites have their certificates expired and nobody has done anything about it to renew them ?

I know what you mean. At my work I run into these warnigns a lot because the security settings are higher in the browser there and I cannot change them.

At home I've resorted to not bother with warnings like that, so I've unchecked the option to warn. It's annoying.

Hi,

If this has just started to happen, try checking your system date and time if you haven't already, that's the most common cause of the problem which I've come across. Also, is the CMOS battery on the motherboard still good.

IE apparently has a problem that it doesn't re-check the system date once it's opened a browser window, it just assumes it to be correct for every subsequent window opened until either all windows have been closed or the PC is rebooted.

My office PC is brand new, so there shoudln't be a battery problem. I have no control over any of it anyway.

But the security is very tight, and I cannot fiddle with it.

Howdy Mustafa :-D

Are you getting a warning message like the following ?
If so, it's most likely a security setting issue. I get these quite often from sites I know are OK.

There is a problem with this website's security certificate.
The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority.
