Windows 7 domain members do not accept valid root CAs

Hi All,

We are currently working on a Windows 7 roll out and have come across an issue were the domain members are unable to verify any SSL certificates.

Before the PCs are joined to the domain this works so I suspect it is a Group Policy issue.

Any https:// address flags up as an SSL failure even if the certificate is valid.

Examples are Facebook login and Google Analytics.

This is not just IE it is in any browser.

Thanks in advance for any help.

This was caused by Windows Update not being able to download the root CA updates.

I installed the update manually and it fixed it.
