    I've done a virus scan and a malware byte scan. It found a few things that are unrelated but it doesn't fit this problem

    I can't go to google mail, or google maps on firefox, as I get this:

    http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb...s+untrusted#w_certificates-and-identification

    "This Connection is Untrusted" error message appears on firefox,

    and in Chrome, on another web site, I get 403 forbidden.

    First I thought it's because I delete a few things in my certificate as I went to a web site that a page seems to be hijacked. But I only delete it on my firefox. I can still go to that web site (just the main page not some of the pages), but Chrome and IE8 said 403 Forbidden.

    Should I do a Restore Point? Or what is causing all these? Please help

    I fix some of it. I clear SSL state in IE 8 and I can now get rid of that 403 forbidden

    But how do you do that w/ Chrome and Firefox?

    I already clear everything, including cache w/ Firefox, same thing

    Do you have any proxy settings in Chrome or FireFox?

    No, and No. Ea. browser are separate, so even if I screw up the certificate in firefox, it shouldn't affect Chrome. As I didn't set Chrome to import certificate setting from Firefox

    Check the date/time of your PC if you are getting cert errors.

    I just take all the latest security update, among others, because I thought I need to update my root certificates. Now among the update, there is no update that says root certificates on it.

    And after the update, same thing
