    Problems loading new software

    Hi all

    I have had some problems loading some new software and it took me ages to find the problem so thought i would pass on what i did to solve it as Microsoft has hidden the problem quite deep
    Windows 10
    It would seem that MS has decided with ver 10 to stop any new software from loading that it does not know of so treats it as a virus threat

    There answer is to have a controlled folder access hidden away
    In defender settings under control panel
    Firewall & Network protection
    Virus and Threat protection settings
    Controlled folder setting which by default is on and needs turning off if you have problems on setup.exe

    Found it about 10 seconds before it went through the window in frustration
