[SOLVED] Invalid SSL Certificate
Ok, so I bought a Steam Card today, and I went to redeem it. I click "Redeem" and got this:

Invalid SSL Certificate

The SSL certificate for https://steamcommunity.com/market/eligibilitycheck/?goto=%2Fmarket%2F is invalid and the page will not be loaded.

I need serious help. Thanks.

Have you tried redeeming it on both the steam client and the browser? Have you tried another device (computer, tablet, smartphone, console, etc..) or a different network (cell or different wifi.)?
Is your date and time correct? Do you have admin privilidges? Are you running any security software (antivirus, firewall, etc...)?

I redeemed it on the browser, but notice this is this is the market that I gave. I have problems getting into the Market, Redeeming page, and anything else regarding purchases. I can do it on the browser however.

Hmm have you tried repairing steam through the installer, flushing Steam's config file, or switching to or from the beta then restarting your computer. Maybe give running Steam as an admin.

I'll try that, and get back to you.
Ok, I tried it, but to no avail.

I\m out of ideas then. I've suggesting everything I thought/or knew could work. I'll look into it later. Good luck.

P.S. if you find a solution don't fprget to post it so if someone else has the same problem they can find this thread.
Understood. :p2turret:
I'VE FOUND A SOLUTION: To fix it, go into your settings. On the first tab you will see a button called "Beta Participation". Click "Change". Go down into the dropdown menu and choose "OPT out of all Beta programs". Click "OK". It will ask you to restart Steam. When you load it back up, it will be downloading an update. Then when the client is finished, you should be able to go into everything again. NOTE: I found this out myself. :p2turret:

Did it not do the same when I recommended earlier in my second post to opt in or out of the Steam beta client or just when you did the universal opt out you mentioned ?

It wasn't exactly what you told me, I don't think.

I'm just trying to isolate it. Apparently it has something to do with a beta participation and it seems like it would be the client being beta. do you know if you were participating in any other betas?

I'm not sure. What's important is that the solution has been posted.
