Renewing personal certificates in Internet Explorer 8

Personal certificates in WM Keeper WebPro (Light) must be renewed once every two years.

WM Keeper WebPro (Light) will inform you of the need to obtain a new certificate on the "Purses" page a month before your current certificate expires.

If the current certificate has already expired by the time you try to renew it, you have to start the access recovery procedure for WM Keeper WebPro.

Before renewing your certificate, it is recommended that you add https://www.wmcert.com to your list of trusted sites (in "Internet Options" in the "Security tab," choose "Trusted Sites," then click "Sites," the name of the site, and "Add").

The procedure for obtaining a new certificate is similar to receiving a certificate when registering on WM Keeper WebPro (Light).

To renew your personal certificate in Internet Explorer 8, perform the following actions:

1 Log in to your WM Keeper WebPro (Light) and go to the "Purses" tab. The message telling you to renew your certificate contains a link to www.wmcert.com; click on it.

2 In the window that appears, enter your e-mail address. This may be the e-mail you gave when registering on WM Keeper WebPro (Light) or any other address. Your new certificate in such a case will become a certificate for the given e-mail address, and you will be able to sign your messages to it. Then click "Prolong registration."

3 Next, confirm the operation by clicking "Yes"

4 If the resulting window is identical to the one shown below, this means that your certificate has been successfully installed in the browser's storage. Click "Start."

5 Delete the old certificate form storage. To do this, bring up the brower's settings under the "Tools" menu, "Internet Options," inside of the "Content" section there is a "Certificates" heading. Select the old certificate under "Personal" and click "Remove."

Important: make sure before removing the old certificate that the new certificate has been installed to the browser's storage.

6 Close the settings window and click "Start."

7 Reopen your browser and login to WM Keeper WebPro (Light) at light.webmoney.ru. The renewal process is complete only when you log in to your WM Keeper WebPro (Light) for the first time with your new certificate.

Immediately after renewing your certificate, create a backup copy of it on a removable disk. In Internet Explorer, open the certificate manager under the "Tools" menu>Internet Options>Content>Certificates: select the certificate in the "Personal" tab and click "Export," selecting a place to save the file and a password.
