    Windows Security Virus & thread protection warning for ransomware protection


    I have Windows 10 Home with all the updates installed as of 2019-11-30, 15:38 UTC.


    For a couple of weeks, the notification centre warning has been annoying me with asking to set up OneDrive, which I do not want to use.


    When I click on "Dismiss", I expect the warning to disappear. But nothing happens. As if there is an error happening in the background, and the UI simply swallows it.


    After I removed OneDrive, reopened Settings, the warning was no longer there. But the notification icon in the system tray was still present.


    A similar thread of the last year seems to have no answers from Microsoft or anyone.


    I would like OneDrive to remain installed, yet not bother me with the suggestion to become my ransomware backup option.

    Virus and Threat Protection Warnings

    Hi Penelope_AV

    ETD_GetSMART.exe is HP Software and it is safe, that software is designed to check your hard drive for imminent failure and warn you

    You can add that to the list of safe files in Controlled Folder Access to get rid of this warning

    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

    ETD_GetSMART.exe is located in the following folder:

    C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\HP Support Framework\Resources\HPActiveHealth\Executable Agent Data\_Shared\DiskCheck\

    Virus Protection

    I'd Suggest You Better Skip The Idea of Using Those Security Suites. Better Use Some Free To Use Yet HIghly Rated For VIrus Protection Engines. Here's What I Suggest Top Three...


    1. Avira AntiVir Personal Classic Edition
    2. Avast! Home Edition
    3. AVG Free


    Avira Is Found To Trigger Less False Alarms Than Anyother AV (Even Paid Don't Have That Kind'a Accuracy), & Is Much Better Than some of The Paid Ones. Next Is Avast!, For It's Individual Scanner Protection & It's Unique VRDB (Virus Recovery Database) Feature.

    If You're Looking For Firewall Protection Then Again, The Free Stuff Come To The Rescue.


    1. ZoneAlarm Free
    2. Comodo Firewall Pro.
    3. PC Tools Firewall


    We All Know How Good ZA Firewall Can Be..! Comodo Has Passed All The Leak Test That Can Be Serious For Your System Security. PC Tools Is Not New To The Scene Here, Still Has Very Good Firewall With Less Questions Asked, Recomended For NewBie.

    Windows Security Virus & thread protection warning for ransomware protection

    Virus security protection with W10

    Check to see if controlled folder access is activated under Windows Security -> Virus and Threat protection -> Manage Ransomware protection. If it is activated, there should be an option to allow Quicken program to bypass the protection to install and run. Don't know if admin login would have helped.
