Hi, well basically a few days ago i noticed that i wasnt able to purchase anything on steam, i wasnt able to redeem codes or anything because i was getting this error:

Invalid SSL Certificate

The SSL certificate for is invalid and the page will not be loaded.

i then tried to buy stuff on the browser version of steam and i got this error:

Your connection is not private

Attackers might be trying to steal your information from (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards). NET::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID

and then under the 'Advanced' part there is this:

This server could not prove that it is; its security certificate is from This may be caused by a misconfiguration or an attacker intercepting your connection.

wtf is going on!? i googled talbots and its a clothes store or something, ive never been to the website before apart from today to see what it was.

my browser is google chrome
os: win8.1

i have malwarebytes and avast, im only after doing a scan on malwarebytes and cleared what trojans nd stuff was there, after reboot im still getting this message.

Okay, let's not jump the gun and assume the computer is infected, but I would like us to operate on that premise. Please download TrendMicro's HijackThis ( you can get it here: ), run it, and then post the logs. I also recommend that you download Avira Rescue System ( you can get it here: ), burn it to a CD/DVD or install it onto a USB drive, reboot and scan. Post those logs here too, if possible. From there, I/we can assess whether or not there's something unwanted lurking in your system.
