    Controlled Folder Access is not letting me save any files I work on since this last critical update. Defender will also not allow me to install any programs.

    Tried to save word docs and also JPGs in photoshop after the update today and the computer will not save them stating the files were not found. Some warnings suggested going to Controlled Folder Access and allowing those programs to save modified files.
    I did that and Defender will still not allow any files to be modified or saved.
