Preferred Solution: Option "Find Certificate" is missed when I try to edit certificate on another computer using mmc.

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.)

Running Windows XP Service Pack 3.

I set this up last night on my own wireless network and it worked fine. I have brought it to another location and I'm getting this error when attempting to log on wirelessly. Both routers are running the same type encryption with the same key.

"windows is unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network"

When the above error disappears, I see the list of available networks with the network I just attempted to connect saying "Validating Identity". That message stays there continuously and I have no throughput.

I have verified the time and date on the computer is correct. Other Windows 7 laptops at this location are working fine wirelessly.

I have tried the advice at this location with no luck.

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.

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 ?

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
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.

I have had a HP computer for 2 years. Twice this week, as soon as start up the computer and go online, i have got this official looking 'HP certificate' that takes up the entire screen ,even over the taskbar areas.

It impossible to copy it in any manner and i can not even open up a browser window til i answer questions.

The certificate says if i want to ...something,something encryted something from HP, press yes or no ...i pressed no because im not 100% what i'd be pressing yes for.........than i get a second question that kinda asks' am i sure about pressing no'.

My guess is it is something legitimate HP sends a person who bought one of thier computers,what it does i am unsure.

A:what is the exact criterion for "Use simple certificate selection (Recommended)" checkbox ?

From this document, we can see:
“Use simple certificate selection This check box enables and disables simple certificate selection. When enabled, Windows attempts to simplify the list of certificates with which the user is prompted for selection. The certificates that are usable for EAP-TLS authentication are grouped by the entity that was issued the certificate based on the Subject Alternative Name and Subject fields of the certificates. The most recently issued certificate from each group is used to create the list that is presented to the user. Simple certificate selection is only used when Use a certificate on this computer is selected. When Use a certificate on this computer is selected, simple certificate selection is enabled by default.”

Annoying, isn't it?
HOW do we forever get rid of this pox upon humanity, oh woe?
Even after installing the certificate into the root store, and shutting off all the suggested "fixes" in IE Options (mixed content off, server revocation off, check this and that off, etc etc etc)
this stupid pointless annoying message (THEY ARE INTERNAL SERVERS HELLO GO AWAY STUPID RED BOX) won't leave.
Please don't waste everyone's time by suggesting putting the sites into trusted servers (like anyone wants to continually answer the also annoying popup asking if we want to open a site in the trusted zone
THAT'S EVEN WORSE).   THE QUESTION is how to shut off the warning on all browsers on all OS (except for Edge in W10 of course, they made it even worse there)   Like you know, in the registry, for example.  On Windows 7 IE 11, for example.

Have been on 2 sites in the past week that have stopped working when an error message came up, telling me that the site's certificate was invalid, that another site might be trying to impersonate the site I was on, etc., etc. One site I was on at the time was FB, and I could not get to the FB site until I reset my cookies. Today it happened again while on the members.directbuy.com site. I could no longer get to the site once this error message started coming up, and clearing cookies did not help this time. I checked your forum, and there in a closed thread I found info on the problem, which helped me end this error message (thank you!!!) Here's what it said to do (it worked!...I can now get back to the site I was on, and it's back to functioning normally!):

1. Click Start and select Control Panel .
(Windows XP Classic View - click on Windows Start button and
select Settings and Control Panel ).
2. Double-click the Internet Options icon.
3. Select the Privacy tab.

Hi there,

Since yesterday Eset is warning me very frequently while on Yahoo and on some other websites (such as Stacksocial). I know it happens occasionally to Eset to warn from time to time about an untrusted certificate. What's unusual is how many alerts there are (on Yahoo there are up to 5 in a row and the regularly as long as i stay on the website).

This happens on our 3 PCs using the latest version of Eset Internet Security with the latest database downloaded on Windows 10 CU (64 bit). Someone in my family using Eset is also experiencing the same warnings.

I've included a poll to know your opinions on this. I also included the screenshots of the warnings but since my systems are in French, i included as well a screenshot of the same alert in English that i found on a Eset forum somewhere.

Thanks for reading me, i was just curious to know your opinions on that

A:Eset throwing warnings about "Untrusted certificate" on Yahoo and other websites. False positive ?

What is being said by ESET - either by staff on the ESET forum or other places - about the issue ?

I'd like to learn more about why this was logged in the Event Viewer:  i.imgur.com/a2vTjwD.png
After looking it up, I found this article (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/security/2728973) which stated that "An attacker could use these certificates to spoof content, perform phishing attacks, or perform man-in-the-middle attacks."

I've never seen this logged in the Event Viewer before, and am not sure how to be protected from any of these vulnerabilities that Microsoft has outlined, now that a potential infection could have already happened.

So my question is: how do I remove the certificate? Where are these "disallowed certificates" located?

Lately, every time I boot up my computer, I'm getting a Security Alert on a certificate because "the name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site."

If I view the certificate, I can see it was issued by GTE CyberTrust Global Root to "a248.e.akamai.net".

I've done some poking around on the web, and I've found that Akamai is a company that does Internet caching and that it's not uncommon for internet requests to be rerouted through an Akamai server.

However, I'm not using a browser when this happens. It just pops up as soon as the computer is booting up. So I'm thinking that some program on my computer is trying to access the internet on boot-up (possibly to check for updates), and there's this bad certificate.

My question is: How do I find the program that is causing this certificate to appear? Maybe I can reinstall it, or tell it to stop looking for updates or something. This happens every time on boot-up. If I don't accept the certificate, it reappears the next time on boot. If I do accept it, it reappears next boot anyway. Kinda annoying.

Any thoughts?

Hi everyone, my first post.

Just bought a used IBM T41 Thinkpad, which I have to say I'm more than satisfied with. Everything seems to be working fine, however I've yet to have it working on wireless lan. The signal is there, with the little ball swinging it's heart out in the icon tray. Problem is, I get this message coming up all the time saying: "No Certificate has been found". I thought at first that it just meant that I needed to put my DSL code in, but it appears that's not enough.

On further checking in the WLAN properties menu there is a certificate listed with the name "C&W HKT Securnet CA Root", with an expiry date 16.10.2010. When I try to uncheck the button that's next to it, it won't allow me.

Does anyone have any solutions for this?

Many thanks.......!

Hey everyone, I have somewhat of a puzzling problem and I'd very much appreciate some leads as to what's causing it.

For the past few months (maybe longer) I've been having spoadic internet connectivity issues. My service is AT&T and I have a 2Wire modem, although I'm not sure that has anything to do with it.

I'm beginning to wonder if it has to do with my browser or a problem with my computer's setup itself. What happens is, multiple times every hour (seemingly at random), no programs can establish a secure internet connection for a couple minutes. Skype calls drop, online games freeze, pages stop loading, that sort of thing.

If I try to open my browser again (Chrome mainly, but it happens on all of them), it tells me that the certificate of the page I'm trying to reach is invalid. My homepage is Google though, so I know that's not true.

I basically have to keep opening and closing my browser until that finally stops coming up and then everything will connect to the internet again.

Considering the large amount of time I spend in Skype calls or Google Plus meetings, this is very infuriating to deal with and nothing I'm finding online about the problem seems relevant. Any ideas?

Is there a way in 10 to add modifiers or switches to a default program?

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

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?

I have a HP Pavilion notebook. A bit older I think. It had built in windows Vista Home Premium. Somehow my hard disk crashed and I bought a new one. I installed windows 7 ultimate 32 bit and updated to service pack 1. I made a system image using windows default recovery console. Everything was fine. But today I needed to restore my computer to a previous restore point. Every time I press F8 to get to the advanced boot option I see everything is okay except the "repair your computer" option. Somehow the "repair your computer" option disappeared. I tried ctrl+F11 button and the F11 button too. F11 button worked for my previous vista home premium but for Win-7 it's the F8 key. Can anyone help me with this please? How may I get the "repair your computer" option back? Is there any way to edit advanced to boot option to get that option back? I would be needing it in case of system image recovery. Please I don't want to reinstall the O/S once again. Please somebody help me.

A:Advanced boot option doesn't show the option "repair your computer"!

On my clean OS install, the "repair your computer" option also does not appear in the F8 Advanced Boot Options list.
The option does appear on my ACER PC.

You can access this option by booting from a System Repair CD/DVD. A system repair CD is a must have.

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!

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
way earlier.  Yep.  I'm that old.  I believe this feature is not in Edge either...unless I'm just missing it.  But I'm using ie11 right now.
*understatement level is set to "high".

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.

I got a warning on ATA that the certificate is going to expire. While trying to change the certificate, I found that both the URL and certificate fields are empty.

If I try to set a URL and click SAVE, nothing happens.
The errors.log shows this:
