Windows 7: Event Warning - SChannel Event #36885 - Certificates

29 Mar 2014   #1

Win 7 Pro x64 SP1, Win 7 Ult x86 SP1
Event Warning - SChannel Event #36885 - Certificates

I've been getting this warning for a long time but I'd like to clean things up to end it.
It's a Windows 7-x64 Test system that was installed late 2009.
I've tested many browsers, email clients, AVs, AMs, etc. on this system
Nothing illegal, no torrents/P2P, nothing dodgy, ... (if that matters)

From what I've found, only 3 certificates are really needed for Win 7.
Trusted root certificates that are required by Windows Server 2008 R2, by Windows 7, by Windows Server 2008, by Windows Vista, by Windows Server 2003, by Windows XP, and by Windows 2000

I had 350 certificates, deleted 40 expired certs, and I just got the warning again.
If I delete all but the 3 required certs, will certs be re-added "as-needed" ?
Or, am I shooting myself in the foot and will have to restore a backup ?

Other people have reported this "Warning" issue, but I never found a real answer.
I look at the list of certs, but I have no idea what is used now and I should keep ...
I found a hotfix for Server 2003, but not for Win 7 ...
