Google search engine security problem.

    Google search engine security problem.


    I just bought this new Asus VivoTab Smart. The MS Windows Explorer works fine, it was already on the Start screen. I added 2 ordinary Google search engines, (one in the UK) to the Start screen. (Neither was a Google Chrome). When I try to use either one of them I get this message: "There is a problem with the website's security certificate". Now I have the same thing on my laptop & have had no such problem with them. Any suggestions? This is Win8.

    Check the date on your computer, this can happen if the date/time settings are wrong in your OS

    Desktop /Bottom Right (time) / Right Click on Time / Adjust Date and time. Check its correct.
