Why did Windows Defender block Camtasia?

Episode 1529 (1:09:56)

Thomas from Vancouver, WA

Thomas was running into problems with Windows Defender blocking Camtasia and OBS from saving files. Leo thought that if he had been running as a limited or standard user, that he simply wouldn't have the permissions for that, but he's running as administrator. Leo says this does seem suspicious. Thomas should set up a shortcut for Camtasia and OBS to run as administrator. When you right click on an application, one of the options that comes up is "run as administrator." It may be that those apps need more permissions. Leo says Thomas should also check the Camtasia and OBS forums to see if anyone else is having similar problems. This also could be a configuration issue. It's not unusual at all for file permissions to get messed up.
