On my computer, I have Chrome and my main browser and I also have IE8. I have had no problems going to SSL sites (HTTPS://) until today. Now, if I try to go to any SSL site in eiter Chrome ot IE8, I get an invlalid certificate error. I completely reset IE8 and get the same error. I have ran Malwarebytes and MS Security Essentials and both come up clean.

Is there something outside of the browsers that can make every SSL certificate appear invalid?

I know it is not my network or Internet conneciton because I have another computer on my network that does not have this problem.

The thing I was doing most recently was trying to instal lthe Origin downloader from EA so I could get the BF3 Beta. I went to the EA main page but could never actually log in because I started getting the certificate errors.

Thanks in advance for any help.

If you get that error, You also will get a Install certificate option,
Try installing it to trusted root and reset IIS

It sounds to me like you're running some sort of web proxy on your PC like Fiddler...  

Do you have WebScarab, HttpWatch or any similar program running in the background?

Have you tried Firefox?

Also do you still have the DigiNotar Cert?

go to your cert. lists and please delete it. It's bad.

having the wrong date and time can cause certs to appear invalid. Or you are missing a trusted root. Why does it say the cert is invalid?
