    Problem When Setting Up Laptop - Help! 5th Dec 17 at 12:56 PM
    Hello there,

    I'm hoping that some kindly soul(s) might help me out with a problem that I am having with a refurbished laptop that I have just purchased, as each time I attempt to visit a web-site, I receive the following error message:-

    "To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has blocked this site from displaying content with security certificate errors. The security certificare presented by this website has expired or is not yet valdid. Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept any date you send by the server"

    I'm given to options, the first is to close the webpage, which is advised, and the option to continue, which is not recommended, with a red warning box

    Apologies in advance if I appear a little dim, as I'm not the sharpest tool in the box when it comes to computer troubleshooting.

    Thanks in advance for any advice
