I've not used any of the git credentials before, but now I'm looking to use an https repo address and have tripped over the cliff of knowledge into the swamp below with regard to setting up a credential store....

I'm still on XP.

I have git version 2.3.1 (from the new SDK)

My config has:
credential.helper=!"C:/Program Files/GitExtensions/GitCredentialWinStore/git-credential-winstore.exe"
(which is installed at that location)

and recently added:
(note that both are https, while all my other remotes are mainly git://, with a few http://)

I have a little script "BringGitUptodate.sh" for collecting all the disparate development threads of Git (Upstream, Msysgit & G4W-SDK ;-), so I've now included these remotes but often get this error.

When I fetch the two new remotes I get:
fetch g4w-git & dscho-git =====
fatal: unable to access 'https://github.com/git-for-windows/git.git/': error setting certificate verify locations:
 CAfile: /mingw/bin/curl-ca-bundle.crt
 CApath: none
fatal: unable to access 'https://github.com/dscho/git.git/': error setting certificate verify locations:
 CAfile: /mingw/bin/curl-ca-bundle.crt
 CApath: none

Most of the google searching has shown ssh setups, and I've not found anything that shows the way into the system (aka "Speak, Friend, and Enter").

What [program/command] should I run first?
What should I expect to enter/enable first?
What pitfalls should I be wary of? (hence this email;-)

Any advice or guidance for this first dumb user [1] step would be greatly appreciated.
