Need to remove the Network access account in SCCM but task sequences now fail

I have been asked by security to remove the sccm network access account. When I did this, the task sequences started to fail. We reverted it back for now. I reviewed all of the folder access that the network access account uses. I added Domain computer and authenticated users to all of those folders with the same read/execute access. Will this fix the task sequences? Thanks.

I attached a screen shot, I have to select the "Use the computer account of the Configuration Manager Client"

I have to make sure that once that is selected, all the task sequences and the image deployment will continue to work.

    If you configure the SCCM site for HTTPS or Enhanced HTTP, a workgroup or Azure AD-joined client can securely access content from distribution points without the need for a network access account. This behavior includes OS deployment scenarios with a task sequence running from boot media, PXE, or Software Center.
