Re: [WIN7] CAP12 error HELP

As longs as the URL/Address bar still indicated an HTTPS connection in addition to something akin to a padlock icon/picture, your connection was/is secure end to end. If you were actually missing a suitable SSL cert. for that banking site, it should have prompted for it to be downloaded once your login credentials were authenticated.

Also, I strongly suggest that you upgrade your OS to Win 7. (Not 8)

XP is getting too old.

The OS on this computer is Windows 7 64bit. I keep stressing the XP rootsupd. (Win32 cabinet extractor) because I installed that version out of desperation and feel that I broke the roots update certificate mechanism in the process.

In view of what I did, does what you said still stand that seeing https and a lock indicates that the connection is secure?

BTW, the MS fix I linked to in my first post seems like it will fix this problem, but it says it is for server 2008, and I don't understand the instructions fully.

Thank you.

Sincerely, Libra
