Can' t get HTTPS login page due to cert error?

Did anyone experience this problem? I suddenly couldn' t get to login GUI page via HTTPS at FG40C from my Win7 Home laptop because of: " The certificate CN name doesn' t now match the passed value." and " A certificate chain could not be built to a trusted authority." according to CAPI2 event log. Then it (laptop side) just drops the session. But if I try from another laptop it gives me the warning page " Untrusted" and I just need to make an exception as trusted. So seems to be a Win7 setting issue or some sort. I also tried another FG40C with this laptop and got the same result.

Before I could figure this out, I got a DVD for Window7 Pro to upgrade this Home Edition. After the installation, it' s now back to normal and I can set exceptions for FG GUI accesses. I' ll keep this in mind and wait for the next time when it happens to this Laptop.
