    Annoying Banner

    I run a MacBook Pro with Snow Leopard. When I try to access Google or to read my mail on google, I get a drop down banner saying [I]Safari can't verify the identity of the website accounts.google .com. It has to do with a certificate from GTE CyberTrust Global Root . The certificate says This Certificate is not valid (host name mismatch). What is this all about and importantly how do I get rid of this darn thing which is blocking my access?

    As strange as this might seem, Certificate error messages like these can 'sometimes' be down to your Time and Date or Time Zone settings being incorrect. So as a first step could you go to System Preferences > Date & Time and check the date, time and time zone are all set correctly. If that isn't the issue then we will have to think of something else.
