WinXP just notified me of a "Root Certificate Update"
What exactly is this and is it something I should go ahead and install?

thanks John and for the read Bob.
I was curious because it was listed as an optional software update and when I googled it all I was finding was complaints of internet connectivity issues after installing it

similar to these Latest Root Certicicate update Problem in Windows Update

I haven't been able to find enough to decide if these were isolated incidents or a bigger problem.
