Question

I keep trying to log in and SL is saying my clock is set incorrectly. My PC clock was never incorrect so that's ridiculous. I tried putting in the wrong time for real and relogging because I was told that could work too, but I'm still getting the same message. It also says check my network and firewall so that it's set up correctly but I did and I don't think that's the problem. It's being more than 21 days hapening this...so please help me..please I have a file saying this...attached

Search Awesome also installs a ransom named root certificate into the Windows Trusted Root Certification Authority. There certificates will have random names similar to 6f5d3053c2b315ab. This root certificate allows it to see traffic passing through SSL connections so that it is able to inject ads even into encrypted connections.

I'm really not surprised this thing causes this login error with SL viewers.  It's pretty nasty.

That error is often created when the system clock is set incorrectly, as the note says.  It can also be triggered by two other things: (1) a failing CMOS battery -- that's the tiny battery on your motherboard that keeps your clock running (among other things), even when the computer is not plugged in, or (2) use of an unsupported operating system, like Windows XP.

This Mother board is new, just 15 days using it... I have windows 10.

Hmmm... well, that rules out those options, unless the "new" computer was shipped with a used battery -- not likely.  Another long shot  .... double check that all parts of the clock setting are correct, including the year.

Some antivirus tools might cause it as they break up the HTTPS stream between your computer and the login servers to scan for dangerous content. To check if that's the case, see if you can login with any antivirus (temporarily) disabled.

Yes this problem can be caused by antivirus or malware.
Which web browser do you use?  You can check the security cert for secondlife.com in your web browser. In most cases the cert will be poisoned there too.
If you tell me which web browser you use. I'll tell you how to check the certificate.

Hi Whirly...I'm using Chrome...and if it's a malware..how can I fix it? It's being a long time using Sl with issues like that...just 11 years!

Thanks.
On the affected computer, in Chrome, go to https://secondlife.com/and log in.

In the address bar, click the padlock to view site information & click on "Certificate"

Take a screenshot of the General tab & post it here...

This is to check the cert issuer & valid dates are correct.

Hey, I was having the same issue, with all viewers...and it appears that it was because of the same malware.  I thought I had killed it, but it was very persistent.  I wound up having to completely wipe my computer and reinstall Windows and all my apps.

Thank you Whirly Fizzle...

I removed this malware "Search Awesome" and it's fixed finally! Thank you for you help and others too...xxooxx

Oh that's great!
Glad that worked for you  :)

Seeing as both yourself & the filer of BUG-225668 were fixed by removing Search Awesome, I wonder how many other people having this problem have the same malware.
