I suspect that what you need to do is to apply the certificate update
patch to your Internet Explorer from Microsoft, then export the
certificates. When I do that, they export as a pkcs7 file, from which
you can print the certificates using
"openssl pkcs7 --inform DER -in infile -out cert.pem -print_certs -text"

You should be able to leave out the "-text" if you don't want to review
the details of the certificates.
