Security Certificate Alert

  sydhall 09:59 24 Oct 2007

Hi can anyone help?

I run three computers Via a Wireless network: My main computer has suddenly started to show the following Alert when going on to some secure sites. No all but some of my main ones, I have checked with the sites concerned and been advised that the problem is at my END.

I have flattened the computer Four times and done a complete-New Re-Build. NO SUCCESS

Security Alert; Information you exchange with this site cannot be viewed or changed by others. However there is a problem with the sites Security Certificate.

It then goes on to warn that the certificate has expired Etc. I think it may have something to do with Internet Explorer.

PS the other two are OK:

If Fruit Bat is correct the latest Java is Java6 up-date3.If you go to add remove and you have any older versions on there I would delete them all then run C Cleaner then Install the latest version only.Version 6 up-date 3. See if that helps.
