What blue ribbon icon?

Please see attached image. Do you mean BLUE RIBBON as this image.

Then you need to contact your vendor and ask them about the blue ribbon not visible when clicking on the certificate.

Yes , some time you need to double check the certificate back in MMC by double clicking it. If your certificate states “You have a private key that corresponds to this certificate.” This means your SSL Certificate was able to marry with its private key, and is now ready for binding to its services, export, etc..

If you still do not see a private key associated with your certificate then perform the following command :
certutil -repairstore my “<thumbprint>”
