Google Chrome will display a message, "The server's security certificate is not yet valid." This is due to your Windows calendar / clock is not set to the right time / date."
The full message may read, "You attempted to reach www.website.com, but the server presented a certificate that is not yet valid. No information is available to indicate whether that certificate can be trusted. Google Chrome cannot reliably guarantee that you are communicating with www.website.com ...Your computer's clock is currently set to Wednesday, October 1, 2003. Does that look right?..."

A few common causes of your computer's clock being wrong include missing a step during Windows installation, incorrect time zone input during Windows installation, or your CMOS battery located on your computer's motherboard needs to be replaced. The normal life of a CMOS battery is 3 to 5 years. A PC CMOS battery replacement is a relatively simple procedure.
