Get-ProcessMitigation -Name "executable name" produces zero results

kgnau-05 1 Reputation point


I am managing my exploit protections in Windows 10 Professional. When I verify the status of mitigations for an executable in PowerShell as Administrator nothing is returned.
For example, executing the command "Get-ProcessMitigation" -Name excel.exe" returns nothing.

What can I do to fix this issue?

    Hello GnauKennethA,

    What is exactly the Set-ProcessMitigation script you ran before?

    Could you describe the output better? Does it come blank, or they appear as NOT SET?

    Can you try just get-processmitigation <processfilename> (same but without the -Name)

    Looking forward for more information,
    Best regards,
