You may try something like this:
Sub RenameFiles()
    Dim fs As FileSystemObject
    Dim fdBase As Folder
    Dim f As File
    Dim sFV As String
    Dim sTV As String
    Dim sPath As String
    Dim sName As String
    Dim sFullName As String
    sPath = "c:\"
    sFV = "cert"
    sTV = "cert1"
    Set fs = New FileSystemObject
    If Not fs.FolderExists(sPath) Then
        MsgBox "Invalid Path"
        Exit Sub
    End If
    Set fdBase = fs.GetFolder(sPath)
    For Each f In fdBase.Files
        sName = f.Name
        sName = Replace(sName, sFV, sTV)
        sFullName = f.ParentFolder & "\" & sName
        Name f As sFullName
    For Each fd In fdBase.SubFolders
        For Each f In fd.Files
            If f.Name Like "*" & sFV & "*" Then
                sName = f.Name
                sName = Replace(sName, sFV, sTV)
                sFullName = f.ParentFolder & "\" & sName
                Name f As sFullName
            End If
End Sub
