I have created a Windows Forms Application in Visual Studio 2008 and successfully added it as a ClickOnce deployment to our company website. The company website has an IIS SSL Certificate from Comodo and I want to know how I can now sign the  ClickOnce manifest for the project using the Comodo certificate because I don't want users who install the application to see "Security Warning - Publisher cannot be verified..." message. A step-by-step guide on how to do this would be really great as I can find very little of use on the web. Thank you.

You can't.  An SSL cert that would be used for IIS woud not have the correct key usages specified to be used for code signing - you would need to order a code signing certificate from them.
