    Since last night I opened Firefox and IE and get a certificate warning

    I did a Super Anti Spyware scan and a Hijack this and Explorer seems to work but still get the Firefox warning?


    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.



    Any ideas?
    Also Firefoxsays secure connection failed the certificate has expired google.com.443

    My Avast has run out so is that it?

    Well people

    Even no reply to my question I found my Internet clock mysteriously changed to May 10 2015 since last night and this seemed to be the problem.

    Either some aliens or time travellers must have visited me in the night

    No it's not a virus its caused by conflicting information in the security handshake.
    I don't know about your clock mysteriously changing though.

    if you are in UK,
    and use BT, this happens a lot,
    as oxon says when u r changing ips etc..

    tip:
    close browser, switch off modem for a least 3.5 mins,
    connect to network and voila.

    regading the date change, wft r u on about? it is 2015!!!
    j/k

    no seriously have u tried ccleaner and malwarebytes to check, cos
    time changing is sometimes a sign of malware i am afraid.
    also check your firewall everytime you reconnect to network...
    and finally, it is good sometimes to power off the modem at night time for >8hours,
    if you can do occassionaly i find it helps.

    let us know how you get on.

    @newnetworks.
    I'm in the Uk on Bt business broadband.
    Got 13 ips + it broadcasts bt openworld and Fon.
    Pissed right off with them. For a business account
    I should get better service than this. They strangle my
    bandwith during peak periods and switch server location
    whenever they feel like it. Sundays are the worst.
    Never mind, Getting virgin installed at the end of the month.

    Honestly it said May 2015


    I changed it and everything went OK again with the browsers and I did some virus scans.

    I am on BT but ther service so far has been more than 100 percent OK and also I am on Fibreoptic:D Scanned with Super anti spyware Malwarebytes and Hijack this

    Also have Avast free

    Yes I do have some ad netork I think but it keeps coming back in Super Anti Spyware scans its flippng annoying.
    Yes thanks for the tip I also switch off modem every night or nearly.
