Browser Certificate Errors

Recently I’ve gotten a few calls about “Certificate Errors” with browsers on various Windows installs. Quick version – solution in link to Microsoft.

This happens when updates aren’t installed, but that’s another story. Been seeing recently where updates are breaking Windows functions, especially with network printing. Will touch on that later/tomorrow.

Download the update from the link above if you keep getting certificate errors from trusted sites such as Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, YouTube, etc.

One user attempted to test from a site called “ttyoutube” which I had to explain is not a trusted site. While other websites exist to help with downloading videos from YouTube and other sites, you run a risk of malware installations by using those sites. Pop-ups and tracking cookies are hopefully the only things you’ll encounter.

Hopefully this will help if you find yourself with errors while browsing known good sites.
