Error code: ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR

I've been having this error in google chrome since 2 weeks ago when there was an update for the browser.

 

Error code: ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR

 

 

People say it's related to the new SSL modifications google is doing.

 

People on other forums are saying to disable SSL scanning in anti virus software from another brand and I do not see this option in Webroot.

 

There was someone that didn't have the other brand was mentioned and they had yet another brand that had the same issue.

 

Anyone here on Google chrome that has this error?

Hi Remixed

 

Do not use Chrome (for many reasons) but this error seems to have been in the news since mid last November at least with other AVs/ISs.  If it is for the same reasons then I would open a Support Ticket to see what the Support/Development Teams have to say about it, since as far as I know you are correct and there is no way to change the use of SSL scanning in WSA.

 

Regards

Re: Error code: ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR

I got a message from suppoirt saying to disable the web scanning which is really risky and I would make a test vm for this.. however I dont have enough keys to add another for testing. I do a lot of sensitive stuff on this pc and Im weary about disabling the web sheilds.

I don't think it was a good idea for google to mess with SSL.

Honestly the rest of WSA Shields will protect your information perfectly fine but how about trying Firefox 26 or IE do you have the same problems as I don't use Chrome either?

If you moving to FF for the reason of using less resources you going to get a big suprise!

Re: Error code: ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR

Its multi process tho so each tab has its own process.

ARG nobody can do a browser right tho. All of them rock and suck at the same time
