Install trusted root CA certificate in Windows Vista

Because of the new adminstrator rights in Windows Vista installing a new Trusted Root Certificate isn't straight forwarded.

The steps are:

Start Internet Explorer as Administrator (right click and run as administrator).

Goto Tools-Internet Options-Contents-Certificates

Goto the trusted root Certification Authorities and choose Import.
