    1. Win + r. and type “certmgr.msc”

    2. Then, delete 3 items :
      R3 Certificate and DST ROOT CA X3
    To delete, just win + r “certmgr.msc” then go thru :
    1. Trusted Root Certification Authorities > Certificates
    2. Intermediate Certification Authorities > Certificates
    3. Third-party root Certification Authorities > Certificates

    Right click, and press delete

    To locate the right certificate :
    Just use Issued By and Expiration Date, search for certificate issued by DST ROOT CA X3, and expired around 29-30 sept 2021.

    1. Install new certificate :
      Download this : https://letsencrypt.org/certs/isrgrootx1.der
      Double click it.
      Then, Choose Local Machine, Next
      Choose Place all Certificates in the following store, and then choose "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" folder

    2. Restart your PC
    Worked for WIN 7 and WIN 10 ( Tested )
    That is because it needs to be activated. If this copy of windows 7 was once used on another computer it may not activate. If it is a retail copy it may but if a OEM it will not.
