Password for certificate

I'm trying to talk to a webservice that requires a certificate. I have
generated a .CER file using certmgr.
My code looks like this:

ServicePointManager.ServerCertificateValidationCallback = New
RemoteCertificateValidationCallback(AddressOf ValidateServerCertificate)

certFile = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings.Get("CertificateFile")

password = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings.Get("CertPassword")

certificate = New X509Certificate2(certFile, password)


resultString = service.DoSomething()

However, when my code reaches the line where I actually call the webservice,
I am prompted with a dialog that asks me to enter my password (same as if I'd
used the certificate to log into homebanking etc.).

I would like my application to run in the background, without requiring the
user to enter the password every time the webservice is called.

Any suggestions?
