    Just FYI, the Controlled Access Problem also causes a System Restore to fail.

    Turn off the Controlled Access feature and the System Restore will work.

    I am not getting it; if I see a notice in the lower right that an app is blocked, what do I do to allow it if I cannot find it in file explorer. The path given does not take me to the site blocked. If I know where it is I can go to that folder and allow it but what if I don't know where it is and the path given in the notification area is incomplete?
    I have had a dozen blocks but cannot tell if they are for good or for worse.
    I have read the tutorials and watched YouTube but I guess I am just admitting my ignorance.
    I am either missing the purpose or functionality or both.
