Do old certificates pose a Windows security threat?

Security certificates are a good way to boost security in a Windows shop, but where do you store these certificates? Should you delete them from your server after you have issued them? Do old certificates pose a threat if they remain on your server undeleted? Find out here.

Question: From our Windows Server 2003 Web server, we are using Windows certification services for issuing certificates for our clients. After issuing the certificate to the client, the certificates are stored in the server. Is there any way to delete the issued certificates from the server? Do they pose a security risk if they remain on the server undeleted?
