SAC is blocking wsl, wimcy and WebClntmdll which are necessary for other programs like dockers, openvpn and also linux distributions on wsl to run.

I have windows updated, sfc scannow and dism scanhealth turn out good.

    Hello there,

    Might be due to location of your devices.

    At this time Smart App Control is only recommended in the North American and European regions.

    When you try to run an app on Windows, Smart App Control will check to see if our intelligent cloud-powered security service can make a confident prediction about its safety. If the service believes the app to be safe, Smart App Control will let it run.

    Hope this resolves your Query !!
