That's weird. Do you have a custom CA certificate added in your configs? Try running npm config get ca

Can you open up https://registry.npmjs.org/ in a web browser? Does it complain about the CA certificate there? Perhaps you are on a network that's doing some funky stuff?

Is this still a problem for you?

There were some changes earlier this year to npm's use of cryptography -- specifically, a switch from using a self-signed certificate to a certificate signed by a public certificate authority -- which manifested as SSL errors for some people.

There have been a lot of improvements to npm since node 0.10.29 and node 1.4.16. Can you try updating your node and npm installation?

To update node on Windows, follow the instructions here:

To update npm on Windows, follow the instructions here: https://github.com/npm/npm/wiki/Troubleshooting#upgrading-on-windows

We are trying to clean up older npm issues, so if we don't hear back from you within a week, we will close this issue. (Don't worry -- you can always come back again and open a new issue!)
