Controlled Folder Access behaves the same with DefenderUI and ConfigureDefender.Updated KeepSolid VPN to latest version. Could not access internet afterward. Disabling DUI CFA (ransomware protection) gave me access to the internet again. Enabled CFA afterward and all is sweet now, no more blocks.
DUI CFA blocked another upgrade via Patch My PC few days back, forgot which app, Qbittorrent, Libre Office or CCleaner. Is this a normal behavior? Will I be required to disable CFA for any future Apps upgrade?
BTW does Configure Defender MD CFA behave the same?
At the moment you can't see the block history or allow an app with DefenderUI, the options do not work yet.
You still need Windows Security for that:

It depends on the app (and your system) if an update or upgrade is blocked by CFA, most of the time it is not.
