How to Overcome This App Has Been Blocked For Your Protection

This App Has Been Blocked For Your Protection

You could say that Windows 10 is the most restrictive version of the operating system of Windows. This is because Windows 10 already has a built-in antivirus. And that’s what causes many applications to be unusable, then a message appears “This App Has Been Blocked For Your Protection”.

Antivirus itself is actually very good for protecting computers from virus attacks and malicious malware both on the internet and also through media intermediaries such as flash drives.

It’s just that sometimes the protection provided by Windows 10 seems too excessive, because there are some applications that are detected as dangerous when they are not.

Moreover, if for example we want to install a crack application or other illegal smells, there will definitely be these notifications. Indeed, the Windows system itself keeps bad things from happening to the computer, because some crack applications are very dangerous, in contrast to us buying the original version officially.

Of course it’s very annoying isn’t it, when you’ve opened an application by “Run As Administrator” but the application still can’t be opened? As for how to solve this problem, there are three things you can try.
