I've seen lots of posts about this in Vista and Win 7 but nothing I've seen fixes the problem. Is there a fix available for Win 7? It doesn't seem top be causing me any problem that I'm aware of but I hate seeing all those errors in Event Viewer (I know, don't look).

You may have seen this page before: PeteNetLive - KB0000304 - Event ID 4107, CAPI2 Error Windows 7. If followed, it will point to what program is causing that error.

I actually had the same error a week or so ago, but at the time I was getting ready to restore a backup image of my C: drive and it hasn't come back, so I didn't ever check on it too much.

Hope this will maybe help you.

Yes, I did see that page. After turning on logging it tells me lsass.exe is the program having the problem, which is the Windows Local Security Authentication Server so I'm pretty sure this is caused by an epxired MS certificate.

Why doesn't MS fix it?

Looks good so far. Last CAPI2 error I had was at 7:24PM on the 24th. Thanks again Phone Man for the link.
