How to install an untrusted root certificate / certificate?

If you enter a web site with an untrusted root certificate, the browser(s) don’t let you install the certificate, the Install Certificate option in e.g. Internet Explorer (still my favorite to manage certificates) is greyed out.

Simple answer: Run Internet Explorer ‘As Administrator’, and the option will be enabled for you.
