Hi Experts,

Hoping you can help with this as it is becoming more frequent. We're starting to get both desktops and servers, where, whatever https site they land on, it will say the certificate is invalid. All clients are above windows 2008 r2/windows 10 that are being affected by this.
On the current machine, a windows 2008 R2 x64 Server, even weirder, when i check the certificate path of google, i can see all certificates are listed as ok; Yet, still it says "This certificate cannot be verified up to a trusted certificate authority"

As far as i know, post vista, all machines now contact windows update for their certificates and update on a daily basis? Does this change when WSUS is in use?

If not, what could be causing this behavior? The time is correct on all servers and clients, and they are patched up to date?
