Hello, and welcome to Geeks To Go.
A security certificate revoked messege indicates that the website may not be trustworthy.
If the website is not as it presents itself to be the certificate can be revoked.
This is not conclusive, many trustworthy web sites do not even have security certificates.
If you have used the web site regularly with no problems it may be ok.
Here is a link to an article by Microsoft with FAQ about security certificates.
Does this happen with all web sites, or just one?
If it is happening with just one you may want to decide how trustworthy this one site is.
If it is happening with all web sites you may have an infection.
You can turn off certificate checking, the Microsoft article will tell you how.

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
