I keep getting constant alert messages for every site I enter. That includes even Google, Covers, Espn, CBS sports you name it I get it. I have to click "OK" for every box that appears If this does not stop there will be a funeral.

The message box reads as follows:

SECURITY ALERT

Revocation information for the security certificate for this site is not available. Do you wish to proceed?

Click ok.

 

I use Windows Essentials as my anti virus because it's free. I suspect you get what you pay for. I dunno.

Any help greatly appreciated sirs and maddams.

...the other option is to "View Certificate."

I've done that, nothing changes. Same crap day in and day out.

Have you updated the definitions and ran MSE? Or just using the real-time protection?

Also, have Malwarebytes?

I've updated the MSE yes, but it was still doing it before that.

I dunno what Malware bytes is/are? Assume that's a pop or an ad, answer would be no.

And nothing comes up when you run MSE?

Malwarebytes is a program that scans for malware/spyware  -- download that and try running it.
