About this Version 

CertAid for Windows manages the entire certificate setup procedure for Internet Explorer on Windows 7 and 8, giving users a more reliable installation experience.

The setup procedure includes installing the MIT CA as well as your personal certificate, optionally deleting old certificates, and setting the correct security settings via a single, graphical application. If you need to retain access to old user certificates, choose "No" when asked to delete them.

CetAid for WIndows now includes an option to subscrive (unsubscribe) to MIT WAUS service. When you select "Change Settings for All Users" - "Configure Internet Options" CertAid automatically subscribes your machine to use MIT Auto Update Service -  MIT WAUS.
