    Is it possible (without doing an across the board exception) to edit/extend certificates so as not to get the pop-up window, "Do you want allow the following program to make changes to your computer?" :eek:

    Thanks Much!

    Security certificates can not be edited in any way. A certificate that could be edited or extended would be broken.

    Thanks, I wonder why even M$ lets them expire?

    For the same reason driver's licenses and other certifications expire: things change with time and they need to be considered again.

    Do you mean disabling UAC?

    NO! Disabling UAC has not any effect regarding the Certificates!

    No, the two are totally unrelated.

    Perhaps: "So they can create new ones"; or "So new ones can be created"; or "So they can create a new one"? :wiggle:
