    Hi everyone,

    cert_rem.jpg

    i'm trying to remove the above mentioned (in pic) certificate using CMD (all the problem relies on using CMD which is what i need)


    i've tried those lines:

    certutil -delstore Root 02ac5c266a0b409b8f0b79f2ae462577

    certutil -delstore "Root" "DigiCert High Assurance EV Root CA"


    (02ac5c266a0b409b8f0b79f2ae462577 is the certificate serial number)


    and this is what i get in CMD:

    Root "Trusted Root Certification Authorities"
    CertUtil: -delstore command completed successfully.
    Press any key to continue . . .


    but again when i run Microsoft Management Console (mmc.exe), the stupid certificate is still there.


    Hope someone could help me with this.

    EDIT: all commands were run with admin rights

    YEES mess around with root certificates! Did you know that for example all https-sites and therefore also WinRT-Apps rely on certificates. If you distrust a certificate from a root authority you will basicly distrust the whole chain of trust. If you distrust the "right" root certificate you won't be able to run any WinRT-app again! Sooo goodluck on disttrusting root authorities. :D:D
