Unable to open secure websites with any browser

I had a user call being unable to open any webpage that has a login tied to it.  Gets a "page cannot be displayed" message.  I had him check his antivirus, firewall (Windows firewall, no antivirus).  We checked his internet settings in both IE and Mozilla.  He gets this any way he accesses the internet, wireless or hard connection.  Gets it at any location.  Has second laptop that does access web sites involving login.  
Does any one have any other ideas?

    Check his date and time. I just had a guy come in last week with very similar problems. His date was set to 02/14/2099 so it was seeing all certificates as expired.
