Trust root certificate store is not updating - Microsoft certificate error

Q: Trust root certificate store is not updating - Microsoft certificate error

I have some Windows 7 systems which have not run Windows Updates for many years, and cannot due to regulatory reasons. We rely upon Windows to automatically update the Trusted Root Certificate store whenever we browse to a web site/web service
that uses a certificate the system doesn't recognize.
Sometime recently, the Trusted Root Certificate Store no longer updates automatically. The Windows Event Log shows an error stating that the certificates cannot be downloaded from:
http : // ctldl.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/v3/static/trustedr/en/authrootstl.cab
If we browse to this location manually, the cab file contains an invalid Microsoft certificate.

This was also an issue in Sept 2018. At that time, the certificate had expired, and Microsoft eventually updated the certificate to resolve the issue. This time, the certificate does not appear to have expired. Why is the certificate
invalid this time, and can Microsoft fix it again?

Thanks

Preferred Solution: Trust root certificate store is not updating - Microsoft certificate error

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello,

First, I have reviewed the other posts with similar questions and noted that I can install the certificate into root certificates and most likely this problem will go away, some specifics:

1) When a client reported this error using a pop.secureserver.net on an outlook 2003 client, I just figured it was godaddy or the REALLY old Outlook client, but nonetheless, I went in to troubleshoot it and was convinced it was godaddy, but when I tried
to start my Outlook 2016 client on my Windows 10 computer on their network, I got the same error.  Two notes are important: 1) I use godaddy as well and 2) I used the same computer at a different client just yesterday without a single error message.
2) They use POP 995 w/ SSL & SMTP 465 w/ SSL to pop.secureserver.net & smtpout.secureserver.net repsectively
3) I called the company that manages their firewall and was told that everything was fine, but was sent a certificate from the firewall that might fix the problem.
4) The firewall company tells me they use a fortinet firewall

I have some questions that I'm hoping one of the experts here can answer for me:

- What in a firewall setup can cause a certificate to fail as listed in the subject?

Hello,

I am trying to resolve an issue where multiple client computers in the organisation are using an internally deployed Root CA certificate (before my time and no longer required) to sign the end entity certificate for external websites, google.co.uk
for example. All SSL sites appeared to be affected by this.




However this is not the case as sub domains of sites with issues show the correct cert chain, the below is for mail.google.com




Removing or untrusting this root ca cert breaks access to these sites.

I have reset root certs in various ways, removed machines from the domain, applied no GPOs, manually updated CRL and pulled down updated certs with rootsupd.exe.
It always attempts to use this rouge CA cert to sign the websites cert.

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Hi,
I am trying to install CA root certificate on Windows 7, IE 9.
Encounter error: "Untrusted Certificate".  "This certificate cannot be verified up to a trusted certificate authority."
I have tried to install the certificate to Trusted Root Certificate Authorities->local computer and import was successful. BUT on IE->Internet Options->Certificate->Trusted Root Certificate Authorities, I am unable to find this root CA on
the list.
On mmc->Certificates->Trusted Root Certificate Authorities->certificates, I am able to view this root CA.
I then restarted the IE and view the ssl site again but failed too, "Untrusted Certificate".
Anyone, any idea ?
Regards,
Eye Gee

A:Unable to Install Root CA Certificate - Certificate cannot be verified up to a trusted certificate authority.

May the following workarounds work for you:
Workaround 1:
Modify the Windows settings to allow the Update Root Certificate feature to update the root certificates automatically. For details, see the following Microsoft TechNet article:
Certificate Support and Resulting Internet Communication in Windows Server 2008
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc771121(WS.10).aspx
Workaround 2?
If the Update Root Certificate feature cannot automatically update the root certificates, you may contact the website vender to see if there is a hotfix can fix the issue.

We are experiencing this problem with a few workstations and laptops and what we are currently doing is exporting the CA certificate from a workstation that has it in its store and importing it. The problem with this is that the certificate will eventually
expire and we will have to re import a new one again. I don't believe it is a group policy issue because other computers in the same OU are not missing the certificate.

Cany anyone shed light on how to troubleshoot this or how to force (if possible) the workstation to download the CA certificate?

Thank you in advance.

Hi

I recently had a very nasty infection (zlob dns changer) Which was apparently a rootkit. I don't actually know what a rootkit is but I was made to understand that it is very bad.

I got a lot of help, first from stang777 and then from Dachew. Dachew helped me for four days until we (he) finally eliminated the rootkit.
I can not sing the praises of him and this forum enough.

I am getting an error message on boot which I assume is related to the former rootkit. It says:

validation failed for c\windows\system 32\ vsinit.dll. you are probably missing a necessary root certificate.

Other than getting the message my computer seems to be working normally.

I would greatly appreciate any advice on what it means and what to do about it.

I hope I posted this in the right place, I am still learning how to use this forum.

In Internet Explorer, when I get a certificate error, if I continue to the web site, I can then view the certificate to see what was wrong.  However, obviously it would be preferable* to see the certificate
before I make the decision to go to the site.  Is this possible?  I'm sure I could use another browser that does this, or maybe use the F12 developer tools, or write a program.   But I'm looking
for a normal-user way to do it.  I think it used to be possible in Internet Explorer, but this might have been 6.x or even earlier.  Or even

Hi guys,

I had installed this mapping tool before applying all the Windows Updates and I got this Untrusted Certificate warning error as shown in the image.

Now, I had reinstalled Windows 10 and ran all the updates and then installed this tool which is a NON-Web version, meaning its a program that runs on the desktop but gathers all the mapping data from Bing Maps and so forth.
After when I launched it this time, that message DOES NOT appear now.

So clearly, it had something to do with a Windows Update that updates all Root Certificates.
But the issue is, I really need to know which update is it so next time I can install this Windows Update myself manually.

Anyone know?

Hello,
I've a very nasty issue with root CA certificate that's disappearing from the trusted root authorities store. I'll shortly describe the environment: 
- Two tier PKI infrastructure with a offline, standalone root CA and a domain joined Enterprise issuing CA (both W2012R2); root CA certificate is published in AD
- There's a parent and child domain. Issuing CA lives in parent domain (2012R2 domain&forest level)
- Employees are working on a 2012R2 RDS&Citrix XenApp 76 server in the child domain
- In the parent domain several servers are using a SSL certificate signed by the company owned issuing CA; it's a SAN certificate
- The root CA's certificate is in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store of all member servers in parent & child domain (so, that's also valid for the 2012R2 RDS servers)
The issue is that the certificate of the root CA that's in the trusted CA store of all RDS servers is being deleted on a regular base (at least once a day on each RDS-server). I enabled CAPI2 logging, but I couldn't find anything that makes sense. However
I'm able to reproduce this issue in very simple way: if I start IE11 on a RDS-server and browse to the IP-adres or NETBIOS-name of a webserver that host a site that's using a certificate from our PKI (so, it's clear that the URL isn't matching the names entered
in the SAN certificate) and I click on 'Continue to this website (not recommended)', the root CA's certificate is being removed from trusted... Read more

Hi,
I have a user who has a strange issue with his Cert store. It only seems to be affecting his "personal" store. When inporting or creating a cert manually the certificate isn't staying in the store. It simply vanishes, not allowing anything to remain.It will
create the key in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Crypto\Keys, but the cert is nowhere to be seen. importing certs to other store works fine, it's just Personal.
We eventually managed  to manually create the cert using the below command (same result for pfx and certs)
Certutil ?user ?importpfx c:\temp\test.pfx
This works, but when programs (in this case the user needs to use "Fiddler") try to create a cert, nothing is imported. This behaviour also occurs as another user logged on to the machine. all are local admins.

I'm not massively confident with Cert Store, is there a quick way to repair or force permissions etc??

(64bit, Win7 Enterprise)

Thanks

Hello,
my name is Adrian and I need your help. 
My goal is to achieve usage of openvpn client on windows workstations to use certificates, which are stored in certificate store. I have tried to install them to personal store, but it is not working. 
Is there any way to achieve this to use openvpn with certificates in personal certificate store? We see it, that using personal and CA certificates in one folder is a security issue and we want to secure it this way.
Thank you,
Regards,
Adrian Bardossy

Hi,

Really confusing one here. Since this weekend (16/17 July) we have started getting Certificate errors on some sites and applications. This seems to be due to the structure of the URL compared to the "advertised" name IIS is presenting. I'll try
to explain.
I have a site, Website. This is in my domain, domain.com. Therefore the FQDN is website.domain.com. IIS is running and I can access this site through FQDN,NetBIOS or IP address. Good news.
I create a certificate for the server using the FQDN as the subject, I add the Netbios and IP addresses in the Subject Alternate Names and Bind this to port 443 on the server.
I browse to https://website and all is good. I browse to https://website.domain.com I get a certificate error. Checking the certificate, everything is fine, no errors, chain is trusted. open Chrome and do the same, I get that the certificate website.domain.com
is being presented by Website and may not be the site I want.
Using either URL has never been a problem until this weekend, but it seems that IE/Windows/IIS is not liking any URL that is not EXACTLY what IIS is presenting. so my questions are:-
Is anyone else finding this?
Can we issue a certificate that covers all possible DNS resolutions for a site?
How do I control WHAT IIS advertises itself as?
SO far this has affected two major systems on our network and I can see that more will arise, so any help would be appreciated.

Can someone walk me through the steps of having Advanced Threat Analytics (ATA) request a new certificate from Active Directory Certificate Services (ADCS)?  I'm not familiar with either product so I will need detailed steps please.  At a high-level
i'm guessing
1. ATA issues a certificate request
2. I send the request to ADCS
3. ADCS issues a cert for that request
4. Install new cert in ATA
I'll need detailed command line statements.  My ATA Center server is named ATASERVER.DOMAIN.ORG, and I but the URL is configured as ATACENTER.DOMAIN.ORG in ATA.  Can the cert handle both the servername and the URL?
Thank you in advance!

Hello Everyone!
This is my first post, basically I received an e-mail today from paypal, when I open it an annoying banner appeares stating my certificate is out of date & stops me doing anything else. I can't delete it & have to use task manager to close windows mail.

If I click for information it tells me it's from GTE cybertrust global root & also referrs to a 248.e.akamai.net. I have Trend Micro Internet Secuity (up to date) & can't imagine a virus has got past.

I have done a system re-store to a date five days earlier, but it's made no difference

I can no longer log onto ebay or paypal which is a problem as I am currently selling.

What is this & how do I get rid of it & get my pc back to normal??
Thanks Robert

Good day,

I work for a company that uses an ethernet connection and a netgear switch to connect a bunch of trucks together, and then software on the main computer to control all the different trucks and display the data off the trucks, rates, pressures, engine diagnostics etc.

Lately I have had an issue with the software on the main computer locking up. When I checked the event viewer the last couple of times I had a crypt32 error right around the time the software froze. Now I understand why this is happening, because windows is trying to update the root certificates, and I'm not connected to the internet.

The questions I have are:

Do you think it's possible that windows trying to update the root certificates could interfere with the connection between the main computer and the pumps, even for just a split second, to interrupt the software?

And also how would I go about trying to recreate the windows certificate update to see if I can make this issue happen again? Is there a program that runs to update the certificates? I've tried searching the internet and can't find a name or anything. This is the most important part of these questions. Recreating this issue and seeing if it shows up in the event viewer is of the utmost importance to me.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks.

Hi,
I recently (foolishly) played around with my documents & settings drive trying to move it to another partition. In doing so I've managed to nuke my certificate store, and lost my EFS certificate. Given that I've just moved the whole folder from one partition to another and then changed the registry to suit, the store should still be on my hard drive just in the wrong place. Can anybody help with where the store is located and what registry key points to the location? I'm running a standalone XP Pro box, and by the time I realised my mistake the system restore had been overwritten .

Thanks

Ok, I won't pretend to be an expert on this, but have you tried using the certificates snap-in in mmc?

I notice that if you right-click "Certificates - Current User" one of the options is "Find Certificates".

Well, I screwed up yet again. If you haven't seen "Firefox Frustration ", I'd recommend that you skim and scan through that first, but I am here with my computer. I need a working computer for school, or else I get lots of F's, so I'm screwed. Please help me. Anyways, I found a ContentWatch (NetNanny) injection on my PC that wasn't trusting Firefox Quantum, so I solved that problem. But, I decided to go into "manage you certificates" in start, I entered trusted root certificates, deleted ContentWatch, and now all websites (except this one) aren't trusted. Is there anyway to undo this? HELP ASAP.
Well, this isn't trusted, but I can bypass it (but not normal websites).

But wait folks...there's even more good news....






Dell customers have turned up a second root certificate installed on some Dell machines, which could make them easy prey for malicious attacks on public Wi-Fi networks.

The second problematic root certificate is called DSDTestProvider. Its discovery follows yesterday's removal by Dell of the dangerous eDellroot certificate from affected Dell PCs.

With DSDTestProvider, once again a Dell support feature has inadvertently exposed customers to attacks that would be trivial to exploit. It is the same security blunder made by rival Lenovo in February with its Superfish adware.

Carnegie Mellon University CERT has warned that the DSDTestProvider certificate, which includes the private key, allows an attacker to create trusted certificates and perform impersonation, man-in-the-middle (MiTM) and passive-decryption attacks.

Good Day



We have a problem where we encrypted files using EFS, however we can't access or decrypt these files now.

We have the certificate in the certmgr.msc but we do see that the key is missing.



I have reproduced this on another computer and was able to run certutil -repairstore -user MY "Serial Number" which worked in repairing the store and files was decryptable again.

However on the machine that encrypted the files that we need to access this is not the case as there is a popup asking for your Smart Card.

We are not using Smart Cards at all, and have had a look at the following article regarding this issue, but the hotfix didn't work: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2955631




I have software that can remove the encryption but will require the .pfx file, which can't be exported as the certstore doesn't show that it still has this.



It is a self signed certificate generated by Windows, so I can't request a new one using the CA.


Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi,
Having some fun with a windows 7 setup of DirectAccess, have it configured to use ECC certificates on the client for the IPSec authentication, which was working brilliantly, we even have it loaded up behind a Citrix Netscaler to do SSL offloading of the
HTTPS tunnel encryption. But when trying to get Client Preauthentication working, we hit a snag, it seems that the NetScalers dont support ECC certificates, which is a pain, but something we thought we could work around by using an RSA certificate on the client
to performed the pre-authentication (as shown here https://directaccess.richardhicks.com/2016/05/10/directaccess-ip-https-preauthentication-using-citrix-netscaler/).
So we have three CA's, CA1/2 issue RSA certs and CA3 is setup to do the ECC ones, so nice separation of the chains.
So we have our Cert chain for RSA loaded into the load balancer and a new cert issued to the client from CA1... But, every time the client connects to the server (LB) we see the handshake taking place, the server sends a list of its DNs (CA1/2) (https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/kaushal/2015/05/27/client-certificate-authentication/)
to the client, but then the client looks in its store, picks out the ECC certificate (issued from CA3) and fails to authenticate saying no suitable certificate can be found, its like its not even looking at the RSA one at all.
So, thinking something was wrong with the way the LB was asking for client authentication, I tried deleting the ECC cert a... Read more

Hello there guys,

I installed ZoneAlarm free firewall yesterday and during the install i recieved an error message saying "Validation failed for Vsmon.exe, this is probably due to a missing root certificate." ZoneAlarm seemed to install fine but it slowed my firefox and IE browsers down to crawling speed, so i uninstalled it, and they seem to be working fine again. I had a look around on the net for info on this 'missing root certificate' and found out that Vsmon.exe is a ZoneAlarm file and that a missing root certificate on my pc can be caused by Malicious software.

So to sum up my issue and question is that 'if' i have missing root certificates on my pc (and it wasnt related to ZoneAlarm) does it mean that i have some sort of hidden malware or even a rootkit that could be causing damage under my nose?

I have Super Antispyware, Avast Antivirus free edition, MalwareBytes Anti-malware, Spy-Bot S&D and windows defender and firewall. Have run scans with all of these (not in safe mode) with nothing malicious showing up. I'ts probly nothing just want to make sure if possible, and here is my Hijack log cheers.
