Virus and threat protection warning


Recommended Posts

I just had a CCleaner update and have had 3 Windows notifications saying Unauthorised Changes Blocked - Controlled Folder Access Blocked. What can I do to rectify this?

This often happens with a new software version.

Especially something like CCleaner which can clean 'controlled' folders.

Give Windows Security CFA a day or so to catch up that there is a new version of CCleaner so the number has changed.

Worried about 'Tracking Files'? Worried about why some files come back after cleaning? See this link:

Just checking:

  • Was this the automatic update, or did you manually update from the website?
  • Were these notifications after the 5.80 update had already been applied?¬† Or did they prevent you from updating to 5.80?
