We had that same issue at home with their system, claiming security certificate was not verified, etc. and think it was a marketing ploy for them. We had the computer guy fix the problem and has not occurred since.

Looks like you aren't the only one.

It seems to be a McAfee thing.

It's McAfee's decision, so put in a bypass. There are other protection companies besides McAfee - Trend Micro, Norton and Avast to name a few.

I've often wondered is these companies aren't stirring the pot for marketing purposes. (Just like the burglar alarm people calling you to say that the FBI has announced a crime wave and wouldn't you like a "free" alarm system?
