Can't complete windows update, Many other security errors poping up

When I try and do a windows update I get a "do you want to accept this certificate" window , but it has this error in it.

Warning the authenticity of this content can not be verified, therefore it cannot be trusted.
Problem listed below

The Root Certificate has Not been Enabled as a Trusted Root

Do you want to install and run "WIndows Update"

bla bla

If I accpet the certificate it still won't run update.

I believe this is the source of my problem.

I have windows 2000, and IE 6.0 with SP1, and I am running the program as the administrator.

There were no root certificates authorities listed.  I exported them from another machine, and now it works.  Any idea how they all could of been deleted?
