Seems that you are having the rights issues here. There might be a chance that you do not have the appropriate control of the system as an administrator that it is giving you this problem. But assume that you have everything else set up, lets proceed below.

  1. It might be a chance that your network is using some sort of proxy settings.
  2. This means that you need to make sure that the SSL certificate that is being used is valid and from a reliable source.
  3. You can also use the windows troubleshoot option just to solve such problems which windows can do automatically.
  4. Just hit the troubleshoot button and it will take you to the appropriate section.
