  1. Process of elimination on this was quick and easy. I removed all the files on the above list except for c:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2020\Photoshop.exe and PS still started up without issue.
  2. Okay, so I tried both solutions and I was still getting the Generator message at PS startup. But then I decided to check my Windows Virus & threat protection settings and opened the Ransomware protection area where they have a link to "Allow an app through Controlled folder access." Once there I clicked "Add an allowed app" to see if I could add node.exe there as well. A prompt actually comes up when you click that button allowing you to choose "Recently blocked apps," where I saw that a number of apps listed. Many were Adobe apps so I chose all of them. None were actually the \Adobe Photoshop 2020\node.exe, but adding all of these files to that list has corrected the issue for me. I'm sure that I don't need to allow all of these filles access to resolve this issue, but I don't see why I shouldn't allow them either. After this worked I returned to my MB settings to switch ransomware protection back on and reopened PS to make sure this still worked, which it did. Thanks again for the assistance. Now I just need to make time to research if Microsoft is aware that this is an issue on their end.
  3. I had previously excluded node.exe from all detections, but reset detection to ransomware only per your screenshot. However, I am still seeing the error. I am running PS 21.0.3 and MB
  4. Thank you for keeping us updated. I started experiencing the issue earlier this month and found the Allow List solution which had worked until yesterday when I started seeing the error again. I am glad to know that MB staff is working on this and look forward to a solution.
