Certificates

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Help, Please., Mar 2, 2004.

  1. Okay... so my wife (can I blame it on her?) decided she was going to delete
    all certificates stored on my system after reading this. She thought that
    they would just be replaced (like cookies are after you delete all cookies),
    but apparently, they are not. I'm viewing and installing all (reasonable)
    certificates encountered. Of special concern are those isued when I visit
    my bank's website (bankone.com). I install them every time I go there, but
    for some reason, the "Security Alert" window reappears each tiem I visit the
    site. When I ask to see the certificate information, it says "this
    certificate cannot be verified up to a trusted certification authority."
    When I click on the "Certification Path" tab, there is a little path tree,
    with "Class 3 Public Primary Certification Authority" at the top, followed
    by "versign.com/CPS (blah blah blah)," then there is "bankone.com" under the
    verisign certificate. The bankone.com certificate logo has a red "X" on it,
    though, which would indicate a problem.

    How can I get this certificate installed back on my system?



    In addition, I'm unable to use Windows Update because of the certificate
    problem. I'm not presented with a "trust certificate" option, yet WU thinks
    that I am declining it when presented.
