How do I install a certificate to Trusted People > Local Computer in Windows 8?

Q: How do I install a certificate to Trusted People > Local Computer in Windows 8?

When I go through the MMC, I add the snap in for certificate. When I go through the import process for Trusted People, in Win 7 you can click "show physical stores" and "local computer" becomes an option for "trusted people".
I don't see this in Win 8. I see registry, enterprise, and group policy. Which do I use, or how do I get "local computer" to show up?

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.)


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.

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?

Very annoying problem.
XP Pro with IE6 on desktop computer.
Trusted Sites contains: https://pilotweb.nas.faa.gov

When ever I go to the following site I get a Security Alert that states that the certificate was issued by a company that I have not chosen to trust...would I like to proceed, or install the certificate. Normally, I just click "YES" to proceed and I get my data. Sometimes I'll re-install the certificate as if it will do any good for next time...but it doesn't.

Here's the URL:


Any ideas of what I can do so that this site is always trusted and I no longer get the Security Alert?

I have a computer certificate stored in the computer certificates store and I want to set for a dedicated local user (the "read only") permission to this certificate. (OS: Windows 7 / 32bit with SP1 DE)

I know that I can do that over the mmc
and the certificate snap-in (mmc => add certificates (local computer) snap-in => certificates (local computer) => personal => certificates => right click to the certificate of interest => all tasks => manage private key),
but I need to do that on many computers. How can I solve that problem with a script (i.e. certutil.exe)?

My work involves several sites we use on a daily basis. One of these sites (via Chrome) has started coming back as "unsecure", and no fixes I've done are working. I've modified the settings (and then) turned off the warnings, I've added -ignore-certification-error to the shortcut properties, and I've added the site to the list of Trusted Sites. I still keep getting the damn "not secure" warning.

The PCs in question are Dell Optiplex 7040. Does anyone have any other ideas? I've looked at doing Copy To File for the site certification, but the one in question is grayed out.

Am running XP Pro SP3 on Dell Latitude D820.  All Windows XP & IE updates have been installed.
Suddenly, I am seeing (Topic) appearing when I attempt to login to some websites, even one for software downloaded from this site (Sun Trust...).
Most disturbing is that the login to one of my investment companies is now showing the "..not trusted" pop-up.  This is one of the largest investment companies in the U.S., so I doubt that there is a problem with their certificate, while I could easily believe that my local newspaper (another "not trusted") might not be up to date.
I have Norton installed and updated and have run Hitman, Emsisoft, AdwCleaner & ComboFix without incident but also without the desired result.
Any ideas?

A:Security Certificate not Trusted

Try installing this update http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42092
It updates the list of root certificates on your PC (theses tell your PC how to recognise certificates that it should trust). The update is not installed automatically with other critical or important updates, so if you've only done those, you may have missed this one.

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.

Facebook buttons and links are embedded in so many websites, that any user who has EMET 4.0 installed will get the alert when generally surfing the web. This alert does not mean in this particular case that there is a problem with Facebook or any hijack or divert is taking place. All this “EMET detected that the SSL certificate for *.facebook.com is not trusted” means is that the rule checking the certificates inside EMET has expired on 30 December 2013. It does not mean in this particular case that the Facebook SSL certificate has expired or that anybody is intercepting or diverting your secure SSL connection to Facebook.

There are 3 cures to stop the EMET detected that the SSL certificate for *.facebook.com is not trusted alert message:

By far Cure 1 is the safest to do. All that option 2 does is delay the warning until the new date you set.

1.Update EMET 4.0 to 4.1 by going to Microsoft EMET 4.1 download and download and install EMET 4.1. This installs over the top of EMET 4.0 and retains any specific rules and settings that you have configured yourself.

2.Open up EMET 4.0, click on TRUST ( CONFIGURE CERTIFICATE TRUST) –> Click on the Pinning Rules Tab –> Under Rule Expiration for FacebookCA you can change the rule to expire next month or later and the message will go away. You can set it to when the YahooCA rule will expire on 3/13/2014 if you like and you won’t rece... Read more

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

Hello, I work at a school where we use a filter program called BlueCoat this filter allows us to filter both http and https traffic. In order to accomplish this we are required to create an SSL certificate and install in on all our local machines. Without this certificate on the local machine the user is unable to use any SSL traffic. In Windows 7 and earlier installing the certificate in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities through internet explorer allowed the entire system to use that installed certificate. In Windows 8 installing the certificate this way only installs the certificate for Internet explorer and programs like the Windows Metro Store and Windows Update will not work because they are not seeing the SSL certificate. Is there someway to install the SSL certificate so the entire system can use it? I also tried installing with the certification manager 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.

Hi there

If you are running a Linux VM and want to install Calibre it's easily done and this method means you don't need to have a root certificate (standard method throws up "Certificate Error").

simply from command line in most distros :

sudo -v && wget -nv -O- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ko...x-installer.py | sudo python -c "import sys; main=lambda x:sys.stderr.write('Download failed\n'); exec(sys.stdin.read()); main('/opt')"

Ensure python is installed.

Works fine just like the Windows version.

Since I have far more HDD space on my Linux VM's than the windows host seems great that this very useful program works on Linux.

I needed to get this working as eventually the library will be moved to my NAS servers.

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?

d. your Wifi is enabled on your router.

OK let's see what's up. Yesterday I woke up and suddenly my wifi wasn't showing any networks and my wifi manager kept crashing. I have a Samsung RV511 and for the year or so that I've had it there has never been this problem. Following instructions I found online I've done just about everything but everytime I try and start up the autoconfig service in 'services' I get error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start.
I found this post on this forum: wireless service can't start
I did all the things mentioned, including downloading the reg files again from the link given in the thread, but to no avail. I even went to the drastic measure of deleting my wifi and lan drives from the network adapters part of Device Manager and downloaded two from the Samsung website. The computer is exactly how it was though; my LAN remains intact while wifi is just the same. I've run virus scans (I've had Avast since November 2011), run wise doctor to fix registry and used SuperAntiSpyware to remove any spyware it found. Overall I spent almost 16 hours trying to sort this yesterday and I'm at my wit's end. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Also, even though the LAN works from my downloaded drivers, is it possible I have the wrong one for my wifi? Or are they somewhat interchangeable?

Maybe your WiFi card has failed. It can happen.
Does Samsung have a hardware diagnostic program you can run.
