Scan the system for spyware and viruses...

I know this will probably sound like a really stupid answer, but...

Make sure your system clock/date is set correctly.

I often double-click the little clock in the bottom right-hand corner when I want quick access to a calendar. A few times, I have accidentally hit OK after jumping to a different month -- and that has caused problems with certificates.

Yeah,I too get that problem on when the date/year is incorrect on the machines in my college.When I set the date correctly then I get no errors.
See ya later,

try doing a Windows update. There was a patch that deal with this, I thought.
