In short, your SSL and BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) problems are related, and it's not a stretch to assume they have been caused by whatever changes the 'IT guy' made a few days ago. In your screenshot, note that the cause of the failure was ndis.sys, a driver required by Windows for your networking card. Such issues are typically caused by hardware failure, file corruption, or improper configuration changes, with the latter being the most probable based on recent history. Hopefully it turns out to be just a one-time issue cured by restarting the computer, but if the problem persists I'd focus on finding out what changes the IT guy made.
I'm having the same issues with all of my browsers, which means there must be something corrupted with my computer itself...
Starting yesterday (left the office on Tuesday, everything was fine; came in Wednesday morning and everything was weird) I've been having lots of issues with secure websites. It's only my computer, and it's only secure sites with SSL certificates (i.e., anything that starts with https://).
My browser says that every secure site is untrusted and insecure even when I know they are (Gmail, my work email, Twitter, Facebook, Amazon Seller Central, my personal website login, et cetera). My computer has been acting funny since our outsourced IT guy did some network stuff a couple days ago. Not sure if it's related. I called him already and he's "researching" but I wanted to look into it myself as well.
Got to the office today and saw this: http://juicemousezero.com/blue.jpg
Restarted (not in Safe Mode) and it's been running ok, but I'm still weary... Anyone have any ideas what might be causing these symptoms?
I'm running a full system scan now but who knows if it'll find anything...
Thanks a million
