Hi,

We have a piece of software that only checks for the existence of a
certificate not whether it has been revoked or not.  For this reason
we would like to remove all of the archived certificates from the user
My Store on workstations in the environment.  The certs all had
encryption set as a purpose so they have been archived and not
deleted.

I know that I can use a "certutil -delstore -user MY 999999999999999"
command to remove individual certificates but I'm looking for a way to
manage this across 5000 workstations.  Is there an easy way that I am
missing?

Thanks,
Bill
