A public key certificate, usually just called a certificate, is a digitally signed statement that binds the value of a public key to the identity of the person, device, or service that holds the corresponding private key. One of the main benefits of certificates is that hosts no longer have to maintain a set of passwords for individual subjects who need to be authenticated as a prerequisite to access. Instead, the host merely establishes trust in a certificate issuer.
Most certificates in common use are based on the X.509 v3 certificate standard.
Typically, certificates contain the following information:
A certificate is valid only for the period of time specified within it; every certificate contains Valid From and Valid To dates, which set the boundaries of the validity period. Once a certificate's validity period has passed, a new certificate must be requested by the subject of the now-expired certificate.

" And how important is it? "
My Puter thinks it's pretty darn important because with out it, It won't let me do stuff... Like upload pics to this site.
" And where do you go to get a new one?? "
AA went to Comodo Repository.com for theres, and the issuer was UNT-userfirst-object
" And how do you check to see if this or that site has one "
The Find Certificates dialog box allows you to locate certificates based on criteria that you specify.
Users or local Administrators is the minimum group membership required to complete this procedure. Review the details in "Additional considerations" in this topic.

Every certificate has a validity period. After the end of the validity period, the certificate is no longer considered an acceptable or usable credential. The Certificates snap-in enables you to renew a certificate issued from a Windows enterprise certification authority (CA) before or after the end of its validity period by using the Certificate Renewal Wizard.
You can either renew the certificate with the same key set that you used before, or you can renew a certificate with a new key set. This decision can be based on a number of factors, including the lifetime of the certificate, the length of the existing or future key, the value of the data protected by the key pair, and the possibility that a private key has been obtained by a malicious user.
Before you renew a certificate, you need to know:
Windows provides an expiration notification to let you know that specific user or computer certificates have expired or are about to expire. In most cases, autoenrollment will automatically renew these certificates the next time you are connected to the network and log on to the computer.

Certificates are typically issued to a particular computer, user, or service, for specific purposes, for specific durations, and often for specific recipients. As a result, at times you might need to obtain additional certificates, renew existing certificates, examine or modify the properties of a certificate, or move certificates. Although many of these tasks can be performed for a single user, computer, or service, other tasks are best performed automatically by an administrator from a server. The following sections describe common certificate management tasks and the procedure to complete them.

I cannot enroll for a new certificate by using the Certificate Request Wizard.
Cause: The type of certificate you are requesting is not available.
Solution: Contact your administrator.
I get a message indicating that I need to enroll for a new certificate, but the enrollment process fails.
Cause: In order for clients to receive certificates, they need to be able to contact the certification authority (CA) that will process the request.
Solution: If a CA is intended to be offline, the certificate request must be processed manually by copying it to removable media and physically carrying it to the CA for processing. Otherwise, wait until the CA is once again online and try again.
Cause: If the CA is online but enrollment still fails, autoenrollment permissions might have been configured incorrectly.
Solution: An administrator must modify the access control list on the certificate template to grant Read, Enroll, and Autoenroll permissions for the intended recipients of the certificate.
I cannot enroll for a new certificate over the Web.
Cause: The CA Web Enrollment pages on the server that you are attempting to contact need to be updated to process certificate requests from this version of Windows.
Solution: Contact your administrator.
I am no longer able to use my certificate.
Cause: The certificate has expired or is not valid for the intended purpose.
Solution: View the certificate to determine its expiration date. If it has expired, use the Certificate Renewal Wizard to renew the certificate. If it has not expired, verify that the certificate is valid for your desired purpose. If it is not, request a new certificate for the desired purpose.
