Can't access secure sites

Hi, just recently I don't seem able to access any secure website. I just get the message

"Could not establish and encrypted connection because the certificate presented by [????] has an invalid signature"

I get the same whether I use Internet Explorer or Firefox.
Any thoughts? It's really frustrating because for purchasing, banking, etc., I need to access a secure site.
Thanks for any help.
