  1. SVCHOST.EXE PROTECTED FOLDER ACCESS BLOCKED


    Lately I've been getting constant notifications of Svchost.exe trying to access a protected folder of mine, I would like further explanation into why Svchost.exe is running in the background and why Window Security is blocking it. Is it some sort of Virus or threat? My last question is why are for than 40 of Svchost.exe running in the background when I checked my Task manager.

    :)

    What does "Protected folder access blocked" mean?

    Hi Ronaldo

    Windows 10 Defender has a new security feature called Controlled Folder Access, that is designed to protect your system against Ransomware attacks

    Sometimes it will block an application from accessing your personal folders, if you trust the application in question, you can add it to the list of allowed apps through Controlled Folder Access . . .

    Open Windows Defender Security Center

    Go to Virus & threat protection - Virus & threat protection settings

    Scroll down to Controlled folder access

    From there, you can add an app to the list of safe or allowed apps to prevent them from being blocked

    Please do not leave Controlled Folder Access turned off permanently

    Controlled Folder Access blocked

    Hi Aeolus0,

    The Controlled Folder Access is an enterprise-class ransomware protection component that was recently added to Windows Defender. When you turn on Controlled folder access, a lot of the folders you use most often will be protected by default. This means that
    content in any of these folders cannot be accessed or changed by any unknown or untrusted apps. Once you add additional folders, they become automatically protected as well. To add protected folders:

    • Select Virus & threat protection settings.
    • Under Controlled folder access, select Protected folders.
    • Select Add a protected folder and follow the prompts to add folders.

    If you see an App is blocked message when you try to use a familiar app, you can simply unblock the app. If this message displays:

    • Write down or take note of the path of the blocked app.
    • Select the message, and then select Add an allowed app.
    • Browse for the program you want to allow access.

    As for your query about having no sounds on your computer, it could be caused by an outdated or corrupted audio driver. For us to assist you better, kindly answer the questions below:

    • Have you made any changes to your computer prior to this issue?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?
    • Which version and OS build number of Windows 10 is currently installed? To check, press the
      Windows key, type winver, and press the
      Enter
      key.
    • Have you tried to download and install the latest audio driver from the manufacturer's website of your device?

    Meanwhile, you can try the steps in this
    link
    to troubleshoot sound issues on Windows 10.

    We'll be looking forward to your reply.

    Windows Security - Controlled Folder Access - Recently Blocked App List

    Hello,

    I thank you for your response. I know how to add and remove apps to and from the controlled folder access. My question is how to remove an app from the "Recently Blocked Apps" list. In Windows 1809 they made it easier to add apps to the controlled folder
    access without having to navigate to the exe. They added a Recently Blocked Apps list you can select from. The steps for Windows 1809 are:

    1. Open the Windows Security and click/tap on the Virus & threat protection icon.

    2. Click/tap on the Manage ransomware protection link under the Ransomware protection section.

    3. Click/tap on the Allow an app through Controlled folder access link.

    4. Click/tap on Yes when prompted by UAC to approve.

    5. Click/tap on Add an Allowed App (+) sign

    6. Click or tap Recently Blocked Apps from the drop down menu. (NEW)

    7. Click or tap on the (+) button for the app you want to add from the list. (NEW)

    It is this Recently Blocked Folders List I am trying to edit to remove apps I have not authorized and that have been deleted from my PC and are still in this list. I know you can select an allowed app from the controlled folder access list and you will
    see a REMOVE button, which in 1809 will put the app back in the Recently Blocked Apps list if it was there originally. But that same process does not work on the Blocked Apps list.

    My question still remains:

    How do you delete an app from the "Recently Blocked Apps" list in Windows Security for Windows 1809?
