I am a relative neophyte in approaching this problem. I just reinstalled Windows 7 on a new laptop hard drive, but now have a problem that affect many programs. I think it may have to do with SSL or accessing https sites ont he web. For instance it affects Outlook by telling me that my imap client server does not have a valid certificate. It won't allow me to re-register my Quickwen software (can't connect to the server). Cannot use Google Chrome as I can't even access the help pages. Is there perhaps some service or feature of windows 7 that is turned off or missing?
