My friend (still on XP-SP3) cannot connect to any secure sites that rely on the Go Daddy root certificate, saying the certificate is corrupt or altered.
I went to the Go Daddy site and downloaded the .crt file and attempted to import it into the secure store but while the Cert Manager reported success, nothing changed that I can tell. The cert is still considered corrupt and the user cannot access certain websites, such as dropbox.com and others.
I have been working in IT for years but have no experience with this particular type of problem Any help would be greatly appreciated.

One thing I alway check when there are any cert problems is the time and date of the machine. Although I never encountered a corruption problem. A bad date on the machine will render a certificate invalid.
