Windows 10 SSL problems

I had someone give me a new hard drive with a new instance of Windows 10 on it (my version was problematic). I am now having a problem when trying to visit a website that is secure. Most of them give me error
Onedrive.com says "sorry something went wrong" and shows me a site without proper CSS formatting.
Facebook does not show any pictures - only 'x'. This is after being told "there is a problem connecting securely to this website"

I am using MSIE, but I have the same (or similar) problems with chrome and FF.

There is obviously some configuration that is either different or missing in this new windows setup, but I don't know what it is.

Can you help?

Simple things first, is the time set correctly?  Wrong time will break SSL.

THat might have been it. The time is now set correctly (system must have done this on its own), and now everything works.

Thank you.
