Search Engine Issue
« on: February 10, 2020, 12:06:51 PM »
Guys, I am having a problem. Since last night, I cannot use any search engine. Google, Yahoo...doesn't matter. Whenever I put anything in search engine, I get this:
Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

"Firefox detected an issue and did not continue to srchoperaterun.info. The website is either misconfigured or your computer clock is set to the wrong time.

It’s likely the website’s certificate is expired, which prevents Firefox from connecting securely."

I've tried everything. Rebooting, Shutting Down, Virus scan, everything. I can't even research this because of the above message all the time. Now, I CAN surf the web with my established bookmarks, no prob there, just can't search. I'm afraid to access my bank or other sensitive things. Any idea?Guys, I am having a problem.

Is it possible you have malware or something on your machine? Malwarebytes is a free scanner and highly recommended. Here's the link

Not sure what else to suggest but maybe someone else has more idea

Heh, I found a couople of videos for you to check out. These might be helpful. Two different approaches but both seem to work.

Actually, we just fixed it. It was an old malware bug, trying to connect to an old ad site that no longer exists. We cleaned it and all is cool now. But thanks for the reply.
