    The majority of them of are Trusted CA root certs. If you remove them you are going to get warnings on any https you go to so it's not a good idea to remove them.

    Hi I agree with Neemobeer! Here's a list of some bad guys you don't want!
    • Sendori
    • Purelead
    • Rocket Tab
    • Super Fish
    • Lookthisup
    • Pando
    • Wajam
    • WajaNEnhance
    • DO_NOT_TRUSTFiddler_root (Fiddler is a legitimate developer tool but malware has hijacked their cert)
    • System Alerts, LLC
    • CE_UmbrellaCert
