Certificate Error "A revocation check could not be performed for the certificate"

Hello Experts,

I am seeing this error on a new WIndows 7 X64 laptop when connecting via RDP  to a Server 2008R2 machine running terminal services. I just installed the server and a 2048 bit godaddy cert. I looked at the other posts concerning this issue but my issue is unique beucase I am only seeing the problem on the new laptop...I can connect from every other machine I have tried (including windows 7) just fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks Dave but that did not help. A windows update to SP1 however fixed the problem.

I assume you can hit the CRL URL from that particular machine?
https://certs.godaddy.com/anonymous/repository.seam

If you can hit the CRL and it isn't being blocked for some reason, the cert may not be properly installed.

I found we needed to add the CA cert to the clients "local computer" list of Trusted Root Authorities by going through mmc.exe, then File | Add Snap-in | Certificates | Local Computer and importing the CA certificate to the Trusted Root Authorities area.

HTH.
