Today we're going to look how to add and remove security certificates from Internet Explorer 8.

1. Click on "Tools" from the Internet Explorer browser menu. Next, select "Internet Options."


2. Go to the "Content" tab and under the Certificates section, click on the "Certificates" button.


3. Select "All" from the drop-down box located next to "Intended Purpose." Use the scroll bar beside the last tab on the right to find the certificates listed by source type. Highlight the certificate you would like to delete. Next, click on "Remove."


4. Click "Yes" at the prompt to continue the removal process.

If you want to add a certificate, click "import" instead of export and go through the dialog, select the certificate and click ok.
