The random generator of Windows is very poor, and the basic statical test of a 1/n^0.5 standard deviation is not satisfied.

As the secured HTTP server need to generate a long random string, the message basically says that the random generation led to a result out of the statistical bounds (see Release 47 using Windows: "The random seed is biased. retrying." discussion.
