Description of certificate provider is incorrect On page 48, the second paragraph from the top of the page contains incorrect information about the certificate provider. Change: "The certificate provider gives you the ability to sign scripts and allows Windows PowerShell to work with signed and unsigned scripts as well. It also gives you the ability search for, copy, move, and delete certificates. Using the certificate provider, you can even open the Certificates Microsoft Management Console (MMC). The commands used in the procedure are in the ObtainingAListingOfCertificates.txt file." To: "The Windows PowerShell Certificate provider lets you navigate through the certificate namespace and view the certificate stores and certificates and open the Certificates snap-in to the Microsoft Management Console (MMC). However, because the Certificate drive is read-only, you cannot edit, copy, move, or delete certificates and certificate stores. The commands used in the procedure are in the ObtainingAListingOfCertificates.txt file."
