    Unauthorised changes blocked C:\...DDVDataCollector…


    Hi,

    I'm getting a lot of Unauthorised changes blocked C:\...DDVDataCollector…from making changes to memory messages, this happens every few minutes and appears to be happening since the last update. I think I'm right in saying that the DDVDataCollector cannot be turned off, so can I turn off the annoying messages ? Clicking on these messages takes me to where I 'think' I should be able to do so but then I get stuck...

    Thanks.

    You most likely have controlled folder access enabled in Windows Defender.

    ...and have just been updated to 1803, the April 2018 Update.

    Memory protection seems to be an addition protection starting with 1803. The solution is to permit Controlled Folder Access for the DDVDataCollector file named in the alert (recommended) or to turn off Controlled Folder Access (referred to as 'Ransomware protection' in 1803).
