    This app has been blocked for your protection error


    Hello,

    when I am trying to launch one game I get the following error screen :

    "This app has been blocked for your protection An Administrator has blocked you from running this app.For more information,contact the administrator."

    I guarantee with 100 % , that the game is safe for running,so I would please you to help me resolve this issue,in order I play the game without the need of disabling the UAC.

    Thanks in advance.

    My Win 10 OS version is : 1909 (OS Build 18363.778)

    :)

  2. Publisher not Trusted, App blocked for 'protection'


    Hi all.

    I upgraded from 7 to 10 over the weekend. Few minor issues with graphics drivers, but everything was working smoothly.

    When I went to open my VPN (Torguard), I received a UAC error message, stating that the app had been blocked for my protection, citing an untrustworthy publisher.

    It was working fine with Windows 7, and is a reasonably well-used app.

    I googled around, and activated the administrator account and re-installed on that account. Unfortunately, the same error occurred. Most other searches have suggested the same.
    I have disabled Windows SmartScreen, and there isn't a 'Run Anyway' option.

    Please advise!
    Thanks

  3. This app has been blocked for your protection: inetmgr.exe

    Hi Lindsay,

    In addition to the steps that were already provided in this thread, we would also like to verify if you have tried checking if the app is being blocked by Windows Defender. The "This app has been blocked for your protection" error may also
    occur when SmartScreen is blocking the app. To unblock, you can follow the steps below:

    • Open the file/program blocked by SmartScreen.
    • Locate and right-click the file.
    • Select Properties and go to General tab.
    • Right next to Security, add a check mark on Unblock.

    You also disable/turn off Windows Defender SmartScreen temporarily and check if the issue will still persist. You can do this by navigating to
    Windows Defender Security Center app > App and browser control >
    Check apps and files > select Off
    for apps and files, Microsoft Edge, and
    Windows Store apps
    .

    Feel free to respond back and tell us the result.
