    Windows Sandbox "Virus & threat protection settings" all off & disable


    Got the 1903 update a couple days ago and fooling around with Windows Sandbox. A few minutes after powering it on, I got the notification, "Turn on virus protection." I click on it, and I get:

    "Page not available

    Your IT administrator has limited access to some areas of this app, and the item you tried to access is not available. Contact IT helpdesk for more information."

    So I contacted myself (this is an ongoing, multi-decade inside joke at Microsoft), and I told myself to open up Settings and see what's going on. I found that everything looks normal under "Windows Security -> Virus & thread protection" with everything at "No action needed," but when I click on "Virus & threat protection settings -> Manage settings," everything is switched off and disabled from being switched on, explained by the red text, "This setting is managed by your administrator." These things include "Real-time protection," "Cloud-delivered protection," etc. Moreover, there is no "Scan with Windows Defender" in context menus.

    Am I missing something here? The main thing besides isolation I want in Windows Sandbox is real-time protection! In addition, I've spent half a frustrating day trying to learn all about Hyper-V because enabling Sandbox killed VMWare Player, which Microsoft failed to warn me about when I enabled Sandbox. And the end result appears to be completely worthless. What the heck. Seriously.

    :)

    Disable Virus & threat protection

    Hi Rahpouyan

    Most likely this is the setting blocking you . . .

    Open Windows Defender Security Center

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

    Scroll down to Controlled folder access

    Temporarily turn off Controlled Folder Access and check to see if you can install those apps

    Please do not leave Controlled Folder Access turned off permanently

    Virus & Threat Protection

    There are some applications that are not yet compatible Control Folder Access. It is intended to block Ransomware. Until third party apps catch up, the best you can do is to disable it.

    Open Windows Defender Security Center

    Click Virus & threat protection

    Click Virus & threat protection settings

    Scroll down to Controlled folder access

    Toggle it off
