Export and importing a wildcard certificate to IIS 7.0 causes Windows 2008 to hang on restart

We have a wildcard certificate from network solutions (*.ourdomain.com).  It has been exported from IIS 6.0 with the private key and imported into Windows 2008 IIS 7.0.  When the server is restarted, it will hang on "applying user settings" at the console and you can't even ping the machine.   We have tried it on multiple Windows 2008 servers with the same result.  Booting into safe mode and removing the certificate clears up the issue.  I have tried the suggestions in this article below but it didn't work.  Has anyone seen this behavior before?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Does this is an 3rd party certificate? If yes, then you need to install the Intermediate Certificate Bundle on the Server first and then the Certificate.
