Don't use the "fix" and turn back the date on your PC. You will create more problems than you already have.
Wait for a stable official solution from Oculus.

This is a brilliant way to mess up your other installations and will cause you further problems, headaches and anger. DO NOT DO IT.

Oculus has responded in the Reddit thread that they are now working on the issue. I don't care if you chew them the hell out or what, just DONT CHANGE YOUR SYSTEM TIME.

I put my computer back a few days and restarted the service in the service management console and now it it working.  See this news link also

It’s pretty bad timing considering the Rift has now overtaken the HTC Vive on the Steam Hardware page.

Level 4
If the Runtime Service won't start, how is it going to download the fix?

Level 2
Whenever I am playing a game and I encounter an error, or a server crash, I find nothing. This community is so insanely quick at reporting this sheez. **Claps** Resetting Time since im on Windows 7 😉

Not only did you guys screw up bigtime by letting a DLL cert expire, it's also been hours for many users unable to use their hardware with no official word from Oculus! Not even a "hey guys we are aware of the problem are working to fix it" Your customers are PISSED. Extremely unprofessional for such a large corporation with such a large user base. Enjoy that brief takeover of marketshare over Vive because people aren't going to forget this or the way you handled it.
