MWB blocks use of Windows PowerShell during VS upgrade

Go to solution Solved by Porthos,

While upgrading Microsoft Visual Studio (developer IDE), the installer attempts to update the C++ redistributable (I believe that is correct), but is blocked by MWB. Apparently, this uses Windows PowerShell v1.0 to perform the upgrade, but MWB treats it as a threat and blocks it. I am confident Micosoft is not distributing malware via their library resdistributable updates. How do I resolve this?
