I have been playing Minecraft for over a year with no problems and something happened so when I start the launcher it does not let me on, said there were broken/missing root certificates. I reinstalled java with revouninstaller and then tried to reinstall Minecraft. It would not install.
Here's the message:

Bootstrap (v5)
Current time is Dec 1, 2013 6:31:08 PM
System.getProperty('os.name') == 'Windows 7'
System.getProperty('os.version') == '6.1'

System.getProperty('java.vendor') == 'Oracle Corporation'

Please fix the error and restart.

Any ideas?

As the error states, try reinstalling Java and make sure minecraft/Java can access the internet.

Are you sure you have Java and minecraft.exe allowed through your firewall?

Click on the search bar and paste this into it- "https://s3.amazonaws.com/Minecraft.Download/launcher/launcher.pack.lzma"
after that it will start downloading, when it's done click on it and then start up your minecraft.
It might not work for you but it did for me.
