Yes, I was going to mention that tool to update certificates. I use it and it's very good. I will go into some detail here about it. It was developed by heinoganda, who is a sharp, knowledgeable contributor there for WinXP.
He's got many things going on with WinXP as well as Dibya and others. Anyone interested in WinXP for the future should stay in touch with that forum ... for XP, Windows 2000 and such.
Older Windows NT-Family OSes
Now to heinoganda's certificate tool ... if I can locate the information and download link.
If anyone here uses the XP POS update ... you need to follow heinoganda's input. He also keeps up with all the updates, time zone updates and such.
Well, I had to go back to 2015 ...
Root Certificates and Revoked Certificates for Windows XP
heinoganda - Posted October 23, 2015 (edited)
For all who are interested in an independent Update Root Certificates and revoked certificates, I want to offer a small downloader and updater (available now) without version confusion.
update 12/18/2015 Version 1.1
The creation date of the downloaded sst files appears.
update 02/16/2016 Version 1.2
Due Country-specific formats of date display, partly the creation date of sst files was not correctly displayed.
Some input about the POS updates ... heinoganda - Posted May 16 (edited)
Sorry, it was explained in the previous comments!
Download Link for Windows Installer 4.5, please install first!

I don't use the POS update hack myself but Windows Installer 4.5 must or should be installed first before the POS update.
There's much information there if interested.
The certificate updater will work on WinXP with POS or no POS.
More questions can be asked at the WinXP forum ... heinoganda usually answers very fast.
Just to add ... sdfox7 and Dibya are also top contributors along with others.
There is 'stuff' happening there !!!
... just to add, I have never quite understood about certificates. I have WinXP and IE8 ... so the certificates are needed, I think. I don't want anyone to possibly mess their computer up. I no longer use IE8, only had it for updates and those are long gone.
I run the certificate updater anyway ... just not sure if I really need to anymore. I would like to update the K-Meleon certificates, this program won't do that, only IE8, if I understand everything.
