• First off, we need to restore the file that was blocked.
    Open the Start Menu and search for Windows Security.

  • Click on Virus & threat protection.
  • Now select Protection history.
  • Look through the history list for any Threat quarantined events. Expand the section and check the Affected items section for MedalEncoder.exe.
  • Once you have found the event, click on the Actions button and select Restore.
  • Now we are going to exclude Medal. Return back to the main screen and select Manage settings under Virus & thread protection settings.
  • Scroll down to the Exclusions section and select Add or remove exclusions.
  • On the new screen, select Add an exclusion and then select Folder.
  • In the file path, type %localappdata%\Medal, then click Select Folder.

Do not worry that Windows doesn't show your added exclusion in the list. There is a bug in Windows preventing it from showing the exclusion list correctly!

All done!
