Getting: NET::ERR_CERT_DATE_INVALID

I keep getting this: NET::ERR_CERT_DATE_INVALID using Chrome and some web pages won't load [other pages do load], IExplore won't access these pages also. I found the certificate for the: DST Root CA X3 has expired. Investigating, I found a reference to: 48504E974C0DAC5B5CD476C8202274B24C8C7172. I run Windows 7 64 bit and found teh SystemCertificates locations in the registry. How do I remove this old certificate and replace with the proper one? Thank You, Dennis Nichols.

Finally, i've found the way :

  1. Win + r. and type “certmgr.msc”

  2. Then, delete 3 items :
    R3 Certificate and DST ROOT CA X3

To delete, just win + r “certmgr.msc” then go thru :
1. Trusted Root Certification Authorities > Certificates
2. Intermediate Certification Authorities > Certificates
3. Third-party root Certification Authorities > Certificates

Right click, and press delete

To locate the right certificate :
Just use Issued By and Expiration Date, search for certificate issued by DST ROOT CA X3, and expired around 29-30 sept 2021.

  1. Install new certificate :
    Download this : https://letsencrypt.org/certs/isrgrootx1.der
    Double click it.
    Then, Choose Local Machine, Next
    Choose Place all Certificates in the following store, and then choose "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" folder

  2. Restart your PC

Worked for WIN 7 and WIN 10 ( Tested )

I'm getting the same problem, this is might be caused by the latest Windows Update. Once again, what's wrong with you windows.

Edit :

Turns out, the certification is expired

Finally, i've found the way :

Win + r. and type “certmgr.msc”

Then, delete 3 items :
R3 Certificate and DST ROOT CA X3

To delete, just win + r “certmgr.msc” then go thru :

3. Third-party root Certification Authorities > Certificates

I just made this account to say thanks, FahrulPutra-6017.

I was having an issue with Steam Store appearing as basic HTML, related to the steam store just being a flashy web browser. some other sites had significant issues too.
The above solution fixed steam, and fixed all other pages I have seen so far.

Thank You very much for this great solution!
It was really annoying to get these errors all the time.
All other methods like turning back the system time or reinstalling browsers did not work, but this method does.
I have an Acer Notebook with Win7/64bit SP1
and the browsers are Opera 90.0.4480.54 and Chrome 104.0.5112.102
Both had the errors on almost every website I visited. Now gone.
You are a hero!

Thank you @FahrulPutra-6017 ! Putting up my information here if it helps anyone:

In my case, CA root ISRG was not present in the system at all. Downloading and installing the above link installed ISRG. I did not have to restart the computer, closing and opening Chrome worked.

Thank You, FahrulPutra-6017. I had to do some clean-up of my computer files before I could do what you suggested. I tried using Chrome to download isrgrootx1.cer and it gave me: NET::ERR_CERT_DATE_INVALID. Fortunately, I had IExplorer and went to site and it warned me not to trust it, but I went ahead and accessed and got the download with no problem. YAY, IExlporer; BOO, Chrome.
Running certmgr.msc, I went to Trusted Root Certification Authorities > Certificates and deleted DST ROOT CA X3; then to Intermediate Certification Authorities > Certificates and deleted DST ROOT CA X3; finally to Third-party root Certification Authorities > Certificates - nothing to delete.
When I ran isrgrootx1.cer, I selected "Automatically select the certificate store based on the type of certificate". And the websites didn't work after a restart. I ran it again and this time selected: "Place all certificates in the following store". I then placed ISRG Root X1 in: 1)Trusted Root Certification Authorities > Certificates; 2) Intermediate Certification Authorities > Certificates and 3) Third-party root Certification Authorities > Certificates.
After restart, the websites were able to be accessed with no problem. One thing, when I ran certmgr.msc again and noticed DST Root CA X3 is back! It's in: Trusted Root Certification Authorities and Third-party root Certification Authorities, but not in: Intermediate Certification Authorities. Anyway, I just wanted to say: "THANK YOU".

Hi there,

SSL certificates do expire, so if you see this error NET::ERR_CERT_DATE_INVALID, it may be time to have your certificate reissued. You can quickly check this right from Chrome.

Start by clicking on the three dots in the top-right corner of the browser window. Then select More Tools > Developer Tools:
Navigate to the Security tab, where you’ll be able to see if the certificate is valid. You can click on the View Certificate button to get more details, including the certificate’s expiration date
If it is expired try updating them
