    Can't make secure connections with virtualBox in windows 10


    I installed Oracle's virtualbox on a windows 10 machine. I'd like to download software to it like adobe reader. I can't. I can start up internet explorer and connect to the web and if I click on links it goes to those links. If I try to go to google.com I get a message that it can't make a secure connection. I tried downloading adobe acrobat in windows 10 and transferring it with a shared folder to the virtual machine. I was able to transfer to the virtual machine but when I tried running it, it tried to connect to the web and could not. This looks to me like a security problem because the browser can connect to some sites in the virtual machine and only complained when they were secure sites. Is there some security setting in windows 10 that could be blocking virtualbox from connecting to secure sites?

    Is the date/time correct on your VM?

    Yes. I'm running xp in the virtual box and it's date and time are correct and match the windows 10 date and time.

    Are you using bridged or NAT networking? I set up networking as bridged in virtualbox and my (Windows 8 and 10) guests worked without doing anything in 10.

    Bridged didn't solve the problem.
