Untrusted connections all of a sudden?????

Hi everyone,

When I try to log onto any site that requires a password I get this message...

(This one is for MSN...)

This Connection is Untrusted


You have asked Firefox to connect
securely to login.live.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.



Normally, when you try to connect securely,
sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are
going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.

What Should I Do?


If you usually connect to
this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is
trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

Technical Details

login.live.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate will not be valid until 05/05/2010 01:00.

(Error code: sec_error_expired_certificate)

I Understand the Risks

If you understand what's going on, you
can tell Firefox to start trusting this site's identification.
Even if you trust the site, this error could mean that someone is
tampering with your connection.



Don't add an exception unless
you know there's a good reason why this site doesn't use trusted identification.


Futhermore, when I have shut down Firefox and go to go back into it it tells me that there is already a firefox process operating and this must be shut down, or PC rebooted if I want to continue.

I am really concerned. I do have a basic version of McAfee that is saying I am protected, but something does not feel right.

What maybe relevant is that before this started happening (2 Days ago) I opened a dormant msn email account that had 1000 messages. Going through them they were mainly spam...could this have anything to do with it.

Has my PC been hijacked, and what can I do

As always....Thanks
