A

There are two certificate store locations on a Windows system. You can see them using the "dir" command on the "Cert:" drive:

PS C:\fyicenter> cd Cert:
PS Cert:\> dir

Location   : CurrentUser
StoreNames : {TrustedPublisher, McAfee Trust, Root, UserDS...}

Location   : LocalMachine
StoreNames : {TrustedPublisher, testCertStore, Remote Desktop, Root...}

The "CurrentUser" certificate store location have certificate stores holding certificates specific the current logged in user, you.

The "LocalMachine" certificate store location have certificate stores holding certificates apply to the entire system.
