Windows 7: How do I Find the last Certificate installed

How do I Find the last Certificate installed

Hi All,

I think I've just done a dumb thing! I never learn, don't make decisions first thing in the morning, before I've finished my coffee and have had a chance to boot up.

I had a pop up telling me that there was an unverified certificate from the revocation list, do you wish to proceed? There was a choice of install certificate or not to proceed, no prizes for anyone guessing what I did!

My question is, how can I now find this certificate and actually see what it's about and get rid of it if it's suspect. The prompt was accompanied by the Java Logo down on my task bar so I assumed it was ok. Big mistake, I know, as Java has been on the usual suspects list for years now so I'm feeling pretty stupid at the moment. Is it possible to find it by date of installation, I've found by searching already that all the certificate have expiry dates but nothing to show when they were installed. Can anyone help me out?

thanks Addram for showing me where to find them, but I still don't have a clue as to which was the last certificate installed as there are no downloaded / installed dates, only the validity dates. I did find however that there is the section for untrusted/ fraudulent certificates and I'm guessing that this may be a fail safe section to protect me from myself and my dumb arse decisions? I guess I'll just keep my fingers crossed and hope that I didn't do a dumb thing, and if I did, I hope that it was corrected by the system.

Certificate error on websites with "Lets Encrypt" certificate
I get a certificate error on every site that has a Let's Encrypt certificate. It happens in IE11, Chrome and Safari, so I'm assuming it's a Windows issue. I can still ignore the warning and proceed to the site, but it's very annoying as loads of sites use Let's Encrypt. Thanks for any...
