  2. After upgrading to Windows 10, Security warning appears blocking most websites

    Hi Claude,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. I understand the inconvenience you are facing. I will certainly help you with this.

    I appreciate if you could answer few questions to narrow down the issue and to provide you better assistance.

    • Does this issue persist in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer both?
    • Are you connected with any VPN connection?

    This problem can occur if the client computer's clock is set so that the date/time is later than the expiry date of the web server's SSL certificate.
    I suggest you to check and verify the Date and time are set properly. If issue persist, kindly perform the below given steps and check if it works.

    • In Windows Internet Explorer, click Continue to this website (not recommended).

      A red Address Bar and a certificate warning appear.
    • Click the Certificate Error button to open the information window.
    • Click View Certificates, and then click Install Certificate.
    • On the warning message that appears, click Yes to install the certificate.

    Please post back with the results and the information asked, we will be glad to assist you further.

    Thanks you.

    a warning message appearing on screen about window license

    Taskbar locks on startup, unrecognised warning message

    Thank you very much for your suggestions.

    I have made some progress with this but my problem is still ongoing.

    I tried both the clean boot and the safe boot. I was unable to draw any conclusions as the problem persisted. After the clean boot, the warning message did not appear and the taskbar was even less responsive. After the safe boot, the task bar did not appear and some programs would not run at all.

    I also ran full Malwarebytes and Kaspersky scans, but no errors were found.

    I have not been able to create another user - trying to open Settings locks the taskbar again, and in Control Panel/User Accounts, it just hangs if I try to create a new user.

    I contacted the support desks of both developers with products using the name Nlib or NLib. The first, SMLib, said it could not be their product as it does not output such a message and it has nothing to do with images. The second, CodePlex, does appear to be the product that gives the warning message. Some of their projects involve the production of splash pages, so there appeared to be a connection.

    The first application to install automatically when I start the laptop is Ashampoo Snap. It usually opens with a small splash page, so I thought it was suspect. When I tried to start the application, I got another warning message, again with the label "NLib". So this seems to be the application that gave the original warning message.

    To see if the application was actually causing the problem, I uninstalled it, and restarted the laptop. The result was the same, an inactive taskbar, but without the message. Again, after a while, the taskbar became active, but with limited access to applications. The problem is just the same, so the Ashampoo Snap message is a symptom, not the cause.

    It seems to me, therefore, that the problem arises before the computer tries to open applications. Based on the error message that I got when I tried to reinstall Ashampoo Snap, "Setup was unable to create the directory ... Error 5: Access is denied", I think the problem may have to do with permissions. I am the only user and my account is an admin account.

    Just to summarise what the laptop is doing on startup: I log in to my account, the background appears accross my two screens, the taskbar appears, the battery/network/volume icons appear, also the clock (although it doesn't increment). I can open the Task Manager - there are no applications running but the background and Windows processes are listed. (I can provide a list of the running processes if they would help.) I have Classic Start Menu and True Launch Bar installed on my taskbar and they are both inactive initially. After a period of at least 15 minutes, the taskbar becomes active, but many of the applications will either not run at all, or have limited functionality.

    Does all of this give you any further ideas? I am loathe to spend too much time on this - it might be quicker to reinstall Windows 10 and my applications from scratch (although it would take me full day to do it!)
