    Update for Root Certificates for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems [December 2012] (KB931125)


    Update type: Optional

    This item updates the list of root certificates on your computer to the list that is accepted by Microsoft as part of the Microsoft Root Certificate Program. Adding additional root certificates to your computer enables you to use Extended Validation (EV) certificates in Internet Explorer, a greater range of security enhanced Web browsing, encrypted e-mail, and security enhanced code delivery. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer. Once you have installed this item, it cannot be removed.

    Do I need this?

    Yes, install it. It won't hurt or decrease performance in any way, and apps that use root certificates from that list will have the latest additions and removals at their disposal, increasing overall security.
