Tweaking.com 4.7.1 after running all repairs in safe mode under build 1803, I get this error that the app has been blocked when trying to open computer management. This is an old and longstanding bug that crops up from time to time.

Yes, I've experienced that in the past but I can't remember what the fix for it was.

Do you have a restore point prior to running the repairs you could try ?

I managed to solve it by upgrading the Windows build. That undid the "damage". However, that it can happen indicates there is a bug in your program.

The program is supposed to be backwards compatible, problems usually arise when the latest version of Win 10 is run on an older version of WR because the Permissions will be different.

However, I'll pass this onto Shane as it shouldn't have happened.
