    Computer won't load websites correctly, store doesn't work

    Weird issue, I've tried to research it and found nothing so here goes. The internet is fine I play games on it and everything, but I cannot load web pages correctly. *windows 8 btw* A youtube video will open up then play for about 5 seconds then stop completely. Some pages get SSL errors, then when I refresh it it loads. Some pages don't load correctly unless i refresh it a few times and pictures still look all messed up. Tried to reset winsock, said i need admin permission (I think I am the admin, only one on my comp) so finally I'm at a loss, any help would be great. Also the Windows store doesn't work. Also I get certificate errors ALL THE TIME.

    Quick update, control panel says I am the administrator.
    Another update, reset winsock, seems to work better but no videos load still.
