If I add this registry setting:

Quote

[HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\SystemCertificates\Root\ProtectedRoots
"Flags"=dword:00000001

It will of course block Eset from updating its cert. in the Win root CA store. Will this in turn bork the Eset updating processing? Assumed is I will have to manually add the new Eset cert. to the Win root CA store.

I assume it could affect adding the root certificate to the system trusted root CA certificate store so SSL filtering might not work. However, module and program updates should work fine I assume.

Actually, the question was any impact on the update processing itself? Assuming successful updating processing, I would manually add whatever root cert. Eset shows in SSL/TLS section to Win root CA store manually after deleting any existing cert. there. Of course to do so, I would have to temporarily disable this registry setting.

Scratch this inquiry.

All this reg key setting does is prevent non-Admin users from creating certs. in HKCU root cert. area. As such, it would have no impact on Eset's creation of a cert. in HKLM root cert. area.
