VeriSign Root Certificate. Out of date?

  pce240v 16:56 14 Jun 2004

When I try to surf, I get a message that my 'VerySign Root Certificate is out of date' and the web sites are unobtainable.
There is a link to put the situation right, but that is unobtainable too. Help. Peter.

check your system date, if the date has reset itself to for example October 2000 then the certificates will be invalid.

if your clock/date has changed, double click it and change it back to todays date/time.

then you should be able to browse the web again.

I wish it had been that simple. Peter

does your e-mail work ok?, if so then it must be the security settings in Internet explorer.

click tools/internet options

then click the security tab

and check that it is set as Medium. (default setting)

Hi again, My security setting IS set to medium,
but one thing I have noticed is that the 'content advisor settings' at the top, is greyed out. Why would that be ? Peter

Under ths 'content' tab, I think I may have clicked on 'clear SSL slate' how can I undo that ?

Thanks VoG, I think this may have fixed the prob.
However, it would not let me do it wothout a password. Many thanks Peter
