Missing CA Certificate - Error masking as a time error.( because the cert is missing)
In my case, the Microsoft Windows Update web server SSL cert was untrusted due to a missing root CA cert.
GTE CyberTrust Global Root cert was not installed. (It needed to be in the Trusted Root Certificates store)
Rather than mess with the individual missing certificates, I decided to directly download the current (July 2008 CAs).
I bypassed windows update and download the current certificates directly based on this KB article:
