Windows 10 Controlled Folder Access Blocking Apps

Having trouble with Windows 10 blocking everything here’s what you need to do. You need to add the program to Controlled Folder Access in Windows Defender Security Centre

  • Navigate to:  Windows Defender Security Centre > Virus & Threat Protection > Virus & Threat Protection Settings > Allow an app through controlled folder access

To find the offending (or not) process you need to use the Event Viewer and find the event ID.

To do this follow the instructions below

  • Open the Event Viewer by typing into the search box
  • Navigate to Applications and Services > Microsoft > Windows > Windows Defender > Operational
  • Create a custom view for event ID 1123

Hope this helps 🙂
