    BEST PRACTICES

    Security certificate updates cause headaches


    By Susan Bradley

    The security certificates provided by various companies are supposed to update automatically, but sometimes the process fails and creates a mess.

    But botched updates can leave behind remnants of certificates that are a pain to remove. They also raise the question: Why do we need them?

    This is exactly the kind of article which more than justifies my subscription to this Newletter.

    Great article! I too as probably many of us, had a log full of 'CAP12' errors. What the heck is that and how do I fix it? These questions were answred fully. Great job!

    I recently had a customer call, stating he had a problem with security certificate errors, after going on vacation and unplugging his system.
    Upon further checking, we found the system date had reset to an earlier year. After correcting the date, the security certificate errors disappeared.
    Replacing the coin battery fixed the problem with the date resetting.

    Thanks for your articles. I have subscribed to Windows Secrets for many years.

    When entering your %windir% full path in the run box I got a Window's error. I cannot see where to attach a file that shows my computer screen.

    Been there; done that. What a pain --- it took me two months to find the fix.
