I have 1 user that is all of a sudden getting an error when logging into Office Communicator 2007 "There was a problem in verifying the certificate please contact your systems administrator"   She states that nothing on her box changed or malfunctioned.  One day she was working with OCS just fine and the next this error appeared.  We have tried uninstalling and re-installing but get the same error.  I am not all that familiar with certificates so require assistance....

Thank you

The certificate may have expired.  You will have to go into the user store in certmgr.msc and look for expired certificates

There are a ton of expired certificates.  Which one is for Office Communicator?  How do I install a new one?  Where does the new one come from

Any that are expired you can delete. Look for the Key Usage Property.

The curse of the end user strikes again      

You’ve updated all your end user’s email signatures. Hooray! But guess what? They’re playing around with the HTML, adding stupid taglines and ruining the imagery. Find out how you can save your signatures from end users today.

There is not a Key Usage property.  This is on a Windows 7 box.  I see

Issued to
Issued by
Expiration date
Intended Purposes


However intended Purposes is VERY VERY vague and does not out right say "Office Communicator"  So what am I looking for here?

Is this the only user that is getting the error? or is it everyone that uses that office communicator server?
If it is the office communicator 2007 server

It is only happening to one user and yes it is Office communicator 2007.  Why would this happen to only one user?

OK so like I said IM a dummy when it comes to certs.  THsi is a good link but when it says the cert info and use ISS I have no idea what its talking about.  What on that HTTP link do I replace to get my IIS site and get a cert?  


Use the CA Web Site
 to get the certificates was to use the IIS site, https://NewCaName.CompanyName.com/certsrv.
