Exclamation "Controlled folder" access Message in Windows 10 (Action Centre) how to bypass

I have had a handful of messages regarding Controlled(Protected) Folder (antivirus access) alerts in Windows 10 (New Apps) in the Action Center notifications sidebar and I disregard/delete these as a rule
But I click the Link and the Shortcut to the Windows 10 media creation Tool Shows in this Folder (I Have just installed a fresh copy/update) and all I did was click the add to and save inks in that folder ..Hopefully I have no Stop error (or the Like ) when I run it to update Windows 10 shortly

It also flagged VLC media player on a recent major Update But I disregarded that and that App is running OK for us

Here is what Bing Says about this Feature ( Its hard to Navigate to on W 10 )

Reminder to self to switch this off before I get swamped ! (Link is shown in the URL above) Good intent, but seems to go OTT on false flags Plenty of similar comments on the URL too.

For the Record, among other items it's tried blocking was the Media Creation Tool(for W10 update) and CCleaner! Cannot choose between friend and enemy
