How to ensure that windows update processes would not be interrupted by customized access protection rules?

Jump to solution

Hi. Recently I am learning to make customized access protection rules in vse.

I hope to know that, would there be any tips on preventing the customized rules to interrupt the windows updates.

In particular, if I block the processes launched from the TEMP folders from creating/modifying exe files and dll files, would the windows update process be interrupted?

Best regards.

Windows Update does not execute updates from TEMP. They are downloaded to a folder within the Windows directory and executed by the Windows Update Agent.


You can test by enabling the AP rule on a single system and running Windows Update.
