A few days ago I updated my second pc, an old and very slow laptop, to Windows 10 1803. I noticed the protected folder feature and left it "as delivered". Today I have tried to update that pc to Affinity 220.127.116.11 and during installation everything appeared to stop (difficult to tell on this pc, it doesn't really have enough umph to pull the skin off a rice pudding). The Notifications box was showing that it had something to tell me and on checking it, it was showing "Unauthorised changes blocked. Controlled folder access blocked C:\Windows\Sy...\VSSVC.exe from making changes to memory". That's really helpful of it, truncating the folder path, but on checking I reckon it's C:\Windows\System32\VSSVC.exe. Simple solution, I turned off folder protection, ran the installation again and everything was fine. So I reckon that MS are shooting themselves in the foot. After all VSSVC is Volume Shadow Copy, maybe something to do with taking a checkpoint before installation? Any second opinions please? Thanks, John
