Thank you for your bug report in the required format.

Moved to verified.

Thank you


i would also like to add that this happened again to me yesterday with a few legit applications that were not modified like auslogics disk defrag and quicksys reg defrag
really annoying bug

i also found this to happen when defense + is in clean pc mode. certain applications get sandboxed even if they are installed with no problems when defense + is in safe mode then its switched to clean pc mode they get sandboxed.

What programs are that? Do you url’s for the devs to download them?
