Your date and time is set incorrectly, usually. Your system thinks it's 1994 again.
Replace the CMOS battery on the motherboard, it's a little disk shaped watch battery that you can buy at radio shack. Then set the date and time. Then everything should work OK again.
When the battery is old, it stops keeping track of time, and the security certificates don't match the dates in your system, that's why you get the error.

Dude! You were so right about the time. My computer went back to daylight savings time on March 24th, 2010. I can't believe that. It is April Fool's Day today. hmmmmmmm. (2012) But I changed the date and time and I can now get into my Yahoo email. Thank you so much.
