Many users have problems with the Windows 10 folder protection when Defender real-time protection is activated!
Folder protection is a well-intentioned thing from Microsoft, but it denies any program access to gun directories, but the folder protection is quite over the top that usually prevents only normal desktop programs from working properly. For a virus or other malware do not present a major obstacle, because they usually infect the system and have full access to the system, with or without folder protection is your own decision, I turn off the folder protection and Defender almost always else I am can not developed further software for my SoftwareOK.com and can kick the PC in the bin since it is useless.
1. If you want to give certain programs the folder access so that they can work correctly! Start the window for PC settings in Windows 10, press the key combination [Windows logo] + [I] and then enter "folder access" .
(... see Image-1 Point 1 to 3)
2 Just adjust the Monitored Folder Access to allow further access to gun directories.
(... see Image-1 Point 4 to 5)
PS: You need the full path to the program:
►► Open the location of a program in Windows-10 (path, folder)?
►► Find File Path in File Explorer Windows (10,8,1,7, ...)?
