Question:

I know that Windows has a GUI interface to manage digital certificates. I have seen it on another computer but I cannot find a shortcut on my system at home, even though I have admin privileges. How can I start the Certificate Manager on Windows XP?

Answer:

The certificate manager is implemented as a Management Console Snap-in Control (MSC) file. The application can be started as certmgr.msc

Below is a list of other management console Snap-in controls. They are all in \Windows\System32

You can start them from the start menu, by clicking on 'run' and then entering the desired command, e.g. certmgr.msc.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>dir *.msc /b
certmgr.msc
ciadv.msc
compmgmt.msc
devmgmt.msc
dfrg.msc
diskmgmt.msc
eventvwr.msc
fsmgmt.msc
gpedit.msc
lusrmgr.msc
ntmsmgr.msc
ntmsoprq.msc
perfmon.msc
rsop.msc
secpol.msc
services.msc
wmimgmt.msc

After a few weeks of non use of my PC a message appears when I activate my yahoo
e- mail, saying 'the security certificat for this website (yahoo. com, I assume) with a recommendation to renew the 'certificate#'or close it all together! Plse advise what could be the reason for this and what can I do to reactivate my programme.

I got into Certificate Manager on my XP my going to computer Tools, Options, then certicates. I am horrified that there's all these foreign certicates on there, are they necessary and are they bad? Like TUrkey and a bunch of other places I have no idea what they are or why they're there. I've been trying all day to speed up my computer, cleaning, etc. and this is the latest thing I'm finding to question.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

that's wrong too, I can't figure out how to get Dahlonega out of there and put in Blairsville which is about 40 miles north.
