My System Specs

Default PSA::: Own a set of Sennheiser cans and used their HeadSetup software?

If you've ever run the software (even if it's been uninstalled) you might want to have a look at how to remove the root certificate.

Do we know why they were installing this certificate in the first place?

Apparently Microsoft has "removed trust" from the certificates.

Some companies block automatic certificate updates from MS, so if a user installed this software on their work PC, it could still be a problem...

And yeah, I'm sure it's nothing "good" whatever they were doing with this.
