No, it won't make Windows more secure. If it did, since UEFI is an Intel property rather than Windows, it would have been employed years ago. The UEFI is not new; the proposed use of it by MS, is new.
Sooner or later someone will figure out how to make a counterfeit key, and bam, there goes the alleged security. Obviously this has to be one reason why UEFI hasn't been employed in the past; it causes more problems than it solves.
