322756 How to back up and restore the registry in Windows
You have a Windows XP-based computer that has security update 835732 installed. When you connect the Windows XP-based computer to a Windows Server 2003-based computer that is running Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0, you receive the following error message after you select a certificate:
403.13 Client Certificate Revoked
You may receive this error message if mutual authentication is enabled.
Note This problem also occurs when you connect the Windows XP-based computer that has security update 835732 installed to a computer that is running Microsoft Windows 2000 and Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.0.
This problem occurs because of a retrieval time-out in the certificate revocation list (CRL).
Security update 835732 introduces a new CryptoAPI behavior for network time-outs. This change was first made to address the problem of long delays that occur because of CryptoAPI blocking during CRL retrievals when the target URL is inaccessible.
In Windows XP, the default time-out value is 15 seconds. Windows XP includes a feature that retries the download on a background thread with a default time-out value of 60 seconds. CRLs that reside on a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) URL may be especially affected because of a reduced throughput.

Hotfix replacement information
This hotfix does not replace a previously released hotfix.
Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.
After you apply this hotfix, configure the URL retrieval time-out values by modifying the registry. To do this, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then press ENTER.
On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
Type the time-out value, and then click OK.
The ChainRevAccumulativeUrlRetrievalTimeoutMilliseconds entry is the default revocation accumulative URL time-out value. The first revocation URL retrieval uses half of this time-out value.
This value represents the time-out period in milliseconds. If this value is set to zero (0) or if it does not exist, a default value of 20,000 milliseconds is used.
Exit Registry Editor.
