My company is attempting to role out Windows Defender via GPO. I have the proper security settings on the share folder, UNC path in the policy is correct and it is being installed by computer. The application will install, but it will also display an "access is denied" error message, yet the application still functions normally, searching for updates and then running a quick scan. After a subsequent restart, when you try to run Defender, that same error comes up and this time Defender will not open. Restarting the service did not help either.
I have searched the site, but it is seems no one is having my particular problem. Thanks!
