Security cert. issue in IE 8

Renewed the certificate on the linux and everything seems fine. After importing the certificate in Oracle Wallet, it shows Ready. However when I browsed the site hosted on the server with ie 8, it still shows the old certificate info: "This certificate has expired or is not yet valid."
Is there any way to make it use the renewed one?
1) I tried to cleanup the cache, everything. It does not seem to make any difference.
2) I imported the certificate with ie 8. It is no effect either.

Can our gurus shed some light on it? Thanks.

Minimally make sure that your date and time settings are correct in the computer. That should least possible cause. For importing new issued certificate, pls see the below

http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B28196_01/idmanage.1014/b15989/chapter8.htm#i1015586

In Internet Explorer (IE), use the following steps to import a certificate from a PKCS#12 wallet:
-From the Tools men, select Internet Options.
-A window opens showing six tabs you can choose from.
Select the Content tab, and click the Certificates button. The Personal tab lists your certificates.
-Click Import. The Certificate Import Wizard window appears.
-Click Next and then Browse to the directory containing your desired certificate.
-Double-click to put the full path into the Wizard, and then click Next.
Enter the password for the wallet you selected.
-Click Next.
Internet Explorer can automatically select the certificate store based on the type of certificate, or you can tell it where you want the certificates by clicking the other radio button and entering the path to that store.
-Click Next.
-Click Finish.
If the certificate store being used by IE does not yet contain the certificate of the the CA who issued your certificate, a dialog box will appear asking if you want to add it to that store.
-Click Yes. Having that certificate makes it possible to authenticate with other servers or users whose certificates were also issued by that CA (or another authority in the same chain of trust).
-IE displays a dialog box telling you the import was successful.
-Click Close and OK to exit from the certificate and security area of IE.

Minimally you should se your new cert in the personal store as shown in the last image in the article talking abt importing p12
