I'm using IE.7 and Vista Ultimate:
I'm trying to place a my cert for access to the our company's Citrix Web Server.  Normally I would just double click my cert and click install.  Then I notice that it says under the "certificate information", "windows does not have enough information to verify this certificate.  Well, I click underneath that "install certificate anyway.  Then it takes me thru the wizard.  Then I choose to install it "Automatically select the certificate store based on the type of certificate".  Then click Next, finish and you see the import was successfull.
The problem is it doesn't go to Personal, it goes to Other People store.  And I tried the other method where it asks "Place all certificates in the following store".  I direct it to "Personal".  Yet still when I view the cert, its goes into "Other People" store.
How can I make sure it goes to "Personal"?

Installing a certificate from the CertServ page will not work for Vista clients until the server is updated with the latest service pack.  Please see http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=922706 for more details.
To install a certificate when visiting a self-signed OWA server on Vista, you need to perform the following steps:

1> Run IE as an administrator (Right-click the desktop icon)
2> Visit the site.
3> Click through the certificate error
4> Click the "Certificate Error" button in the address bar.
5> Click View Certificate
6> Click Install Certificate
7>  Unlike on XP, you must click the “Place all certificates in the following store” radio button, and choose the “Trusted Root Certification Authorities” store.  If you don’t do this, the certificate goes in your personal store, and it isn’t trusted by IE.

Yes, this is cumbersome, but for good reason: Self-signed certificates are quite dangerous, because unless you manually compare the thumbprint/hash via secure or out-of-band communication, you have no assurance that your connection isn't being man-in-the-middle attacked.
