Win10 chrome ssl
Format: Brief Scope
On some Windows 10 deployments, Chrome might not connect to anything; seeming to time out and say "Establishing secure connection" in the taskbar at the bottom. This fix was found on https://www.reddit.com/r/pcmasterrace/comments/9rtf87/win10_google_chrome_establishing_secure/
NOTE: You must be a Local Administrator on the machine to fix this.
- First, you must stop the Cryptographic Service:
- Open Task Manager, click "More Details" at bottom
- Click Services tab
- Scroll down to CryptSvc and right-click, Stop
- Next, make a backup of the \Root\ key
- Open regedit
- Scroll down to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\SystemCertificates\Root\
- Right-click ProtectedRoots. You may get an error here about something being "out of order", this is part of the over-all issue we're fixing.
- Find your account, tick "Allow Full Control", click Apply
- Right-click back on Root, Export to Desktop
- Now, delete the whole key of HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\SystemCertificates\Root\
- Reboot your system
Chrome should now connect correctly. You can now safely delete your exported backup if you want.
