Cannot use Rufus and WinToFlash with CIS installed

I use Rufus (and WinToFlash) to burn images to USB, and after installing CIS I found neither of these were able to format the USB drives any more, complaining that the drives were locked. After removing CIS everything is back to normal. If this can be fixed, or someone can explain how to get around it, I’d be happy to come back to CIS as I still install it regularly for home users who I help.

Thanks for any help on this!

Hi mfarmilo,

Could you please provide us exact steps to reproduce the problem and let us know your configuration settings for our investigation ? It would be highly appreciated if you could fill in a bug report about that.

Thank you very much for your feedback.

Kind Regards

I split and moved this post from Why did you uninstall CIS? Please help us improve by telling us why topic as it is a help question.

Please try adding Rufus and WinToFlash executables to the Exclusions of Detect shellcode injections (i.e. Buffer overflow protection) and see if that makes a difference or not.
