I installed Linux on my CPU (DUAL boot). Partitioned disk it all was 100% fine, works fine. 3-4 weeks after install these problems began might that be the issue?

    TY!!! From everyone for thoughts or help!

    Are those large enough to see? I assume you can expand them? Note Penzu is not the only site giving me this error. It is also happening regardless of what browser I use. I did clean / fresh installs of Chrome & Firefox. Can you "advise" or assist me on how to verify current security certificates? Is there a faq/video? I am not remotely computer inept. Any general/broad advice would BE AWESOME! My computer is almost dysfunctional now. I am 100% confident my clock is set right and my firewall seems ok. I get this error sometimes:
    "Some websites try using out-dated (no longer secure) TLS mechanisms in an attempt to secure your connection. Firefox protects you by preventing navigation to such sites if there is a problem in securely establishing a connection. When this happens, you will see an error page with the option to report the error to Mozilla."

    ANY advice before I reformat and install. Would be great. I have ran every virus/work/trojan scanner I know of. Careful to remove each before running the next, I must have broke something, why would someone hack me or something is broke booo !!! (SEE POST BELOW TOO PLS / QUICK REPLY)

    I have asked on Mozilla. But "you" people here are so much more informed typically.
    The certificate you showing expired 3 days before this thread started.

    IS it normal ok for security certificates to just expire? This is the first time I have seen my computer want to install them? Possibly in the past I had it set up to install them automatically? This still only addresses a small portion of my issue - TY though.

    Yes its normal for certificates to expire after a while.
    After the certificates expired they, if I'm correct, have to register their certificates again.

    It looks like something is preventing certificates from updating.
    My guess would be Norton, it is known to cause problems.

    Try to run update yourself: Start - Run - taskschd.msc
    Go to Certificates and run tasks supposed to update it.
    The date should also tell you, when it was last run.
