Hello,
There is something very weird happening with my hotmail account,

When i click the email button from Windows Live Messenger, the browser opens and instead of going to hotmail.com, it's dispaying the following message :

192.168.0.254:443 uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because it is self signed.
The certificate is only valid for <a id="cert_domain_link" title="NetGear">NetGear</a>

(Error code: sec_error_untrusted_issuer)

Also, when i click on windows live from the tray, msn open with a message titeled Security alert, please check the picture attached.

And even if i open google chrome and simply navigate to hotmail.com i get :

he site's security certificate is not trusted!
You attempted to reach 192.168.0.254, but the server presented a certificate issued by an entity that is not trusted by your computer's operating system. This may mean that the server has generated its own security credentials, which Google Chrome cannot rely on for identity information, or an attacker may be trying to intercept your communications. You should not proceed, especially if you have never seen this warning before for this site.
 
What is That?
Can anyone help please!!
thanks a lot

-> click "View Certificates" button
-> next window goto tab "Servers"
-> bottom right there's a button "Add Exception..."

Could also be spyware or hijacker effecting your browser/computer.
