USB-Stick accidentally blocked: How to unlock / remove settings


Too quickly I agreed to a permanent setting. A specific USB Stick is blocked now (others work).

The defense+ log says:
C:\windows\system32\services ¦¦ Modify Key ¦¦ hklm\system\controlSet001\services\usbstor\start

I can find the modified key in the registry.

Question: How can I remove this setting and access the usb stick again?

Thanks for help!

Open CIS-Defense±Advanced-Computer Security Policy

Double click on services.exe - Access Rights

Click on ‘modify’ for the access rights of which shows ‘Ask’.

Navigate to ‘Blocked Application’ or ‘Blocked Registry Key’ (as the case may be)

Remove the particular entry you are referring to. Click ‘OK’ and ‘Apply’.

Try again.

Hope this helps.
