How do I update a root certificate for an old Windows Server 2000 box.  LogMeIn just stopped working and they tech from LMI says that it is happening everywhere this week with XP, server 2003 and server 2000 boxes.  Not sure what to do here.  This box runs our fax program and it will not die so I have never replaced it

Root certificates are installed via Windows Update and that no longer works on Windows 2000 (at least not on my Windows 2000 machine).

I suggest you get a different fax program and possibly run it a small and more modern PC.

That means that LogMeIn just updated their SSL/TLS certificate to one that does not match the root certificates available in those OS's.  Thinkpads_User makes a good suggestion.

You'll need to download the Root certificate concerned from the company concerned and manually install it.

See http://help.logmein.com/selfserviceknowledgerenderer?type=FAQ&id=kA0a0000000shSNCAY  The Windows 2000 instructions are at the bottom.

Now I don't know which certificates are the problems here.  Also note that the techy has said other boxes are having the same problems and those are boxes which should not be because they are still currently supported so have another check with the techy and see what is going on.

Now there's a lot of solutions in that thread.  Three pages.  I suggest you read carefully and if you use any of those solutions document carefully what you did in case you need to revert and try again.
