  1. Windows Defender’s Controlled Folder Access blocking System 32


    Hey there, am I the only one having issues with Defender’s Controller Folder Access?

    The feature works as intended but my problem is it’s blocking System32 tasks.

    I saw posts from more than a year ago but no reports of this issue recently.

    Things blocked by CFA:

    Windows\System32\SrTasks.exe from making changes to memory

    Windows\System32\svchost.exe from making changes to memory

    Windows\System32\svchost.exe from modifying %userprofile%\Videos

    This is stressing me out. Hope this is just a bug.

  2. Controlled folder access Problem

    I want to use ( Controlled folder access ) for my custom folders like system 32,
    but want to remove the default folders like the desktop folder .
    Found in :
    windows defender > windows defender security center > virus & threat protection >
    virus & threat protection settings > Controlled folder access :

    Sometimes I cant save or edit things at the desktop with Controlled folder access On.
    Yet if turned Off ; then I cant protect my custom folders.

    Hows protecting the desktop more important than system 32 ?

    Asking for advice to get around this by any means, to delete the default list, so only my custom folders remain in the control access list.

    Windows Defender’s Controlled Folder Access blocking System 32

    Is anyone using Windows Defender Controlled folder access?

    Thanks for bringing out that 1127.. This event (blocking memory) isn't listed in Controlled folder access events, yet it occurs from time to time. And I don't notice any side effects of it... *Confused

    It is triggered (on my system) by hwinfo, powercfg, UUP2ISO, nothing to do with Controlled folders, but memory.
