ENS July full installer prevents Adobe reader in Protected mode

The latest release of ENS 10.6.1 (July release) prevents Adobe reader from starting in Protected mode and also prevent Outlook from viewing pdf's in preview mode

A suggest workaround (from McAfee) was Disable Exploit Prevention, or set Adobe to not run in protected mode. Both of these workarounds are removing security.

A better way around is to Exclude **\AcroRd32.exe in the Application Protection Rules section of Exploit Prevention.

Is there going to be a hotfix for this? I have tested with the may update and this issue doesn't happen, so it's definitely being caused by the July update.

Fortunately, I haven't pushed the July version out to many machines, but the Win 10 1903 machines that didn't have McAfee (about 200 of them) are now getting a separate Exploit Prevention policy to allow pdf's to be read.

This appears to be a replica of the problem with VSE 8.7 from about 9 years ago!
