    I would like to install a certificate on my computer for Win7. But what exactly will happen if I do this? What is written and where? Can I undo it and how?

    Please help. I could not find any answer to those questions.

    OF COURSE I READ THE STICKIES! Otherwise I would not have these questions. The stickies do not mention what is exactly altered on the system if you install a certificate. Could not find an answer to my other questions too. If I am wrong please correct me. I have not so much experience with those things.

    I may be mistaken but I think it writes it to tokens.dat dude. At least that is how Slic Toolkit makes it look lol

    Thank you for the info token.dat. I see now if I play around with it a partition restore will repair any damage since this is in the Windows folder. Was worried there is something written outside the partition that I cannot clean up with a partition restore.
