    @Pulcinella, I just added a rough draft for a video(made more on the fly than with real thought & planning) on how to do it, to my post above, but here it is now:

    If you like the concept of ransomware protection then take a look at the bitdefender options - it's a lot more configurable - both in adding and removing folders and allowed apps whitelist

    I'm using the full security suite - paid version (unlimited PC MAC, Android & IOS devices With central management) but not sure what if any of the paid options are available in the free one

    @Barman58
    Thanks for your suggestion.
    Now that Windows Defender offer a decent protection greatly increased by the anti exploit features, I would very much prefer keeping as much as possible native apps in my computer to avoid conflicts.
    Unfortunately I had some difficulty with Bitdefender free since migrating to Windows 10.
    I had no issues on W 7 and I liked it very much then, simple install and forget, just for me.
    Now I have Mbae and use to have VoodooShield, I uninstalled VS as I'm looking to streamline my protections, in short to keep it simple.

    A big sorry to everyone that downloaded my posted Eventlog "custom view".
    I just noticed it was my LOGS and not the custom view I had uploaded.
    I have now corrected the post: Change Windows Defender Controlled Folder Access Settings - Windows 10 - Page 4 - Security System Tutorials

    But for those who have "installed" the wrong one already, here is the correct one: Controlled Access Events.zip

    Now for the reason I noticed it:

    I had to do a clean install this weekend(too long a story), and I'm in the middle of resetting my system back to somewhat the way it was.
    I had forgotten to save a copy of this custom view, and came here to get it, when I installed it, I notices it wasn't the view, but the log oop!

    Anyhow, something else I found out about using Controlled Access:
    If you use multiple disks for everything, like I do, libraries on one disk, OneDrive on another, and system Images on yet another one, you will find you get permission problem accessing those disk and the folder on them.


    So the moral of the story: if you want to or must do a clean install: turn off controlled access(make a copy of the registry key if you wish), then do the clean install.

    After having played with it briefly last week, I turned it off again, and have just clean installed both my laptop and my desktop.

    Were these tests all performed in the same build of WinX?
