User Account Control: Virtualize file and registry write failures to per-user locations

This policy setting controls whether application write failures are redirected to defined registry and file system locations. This policy setting mitigates applications that run as administrator and write run-time application data to %ProgramFiles%, %Windir%, %Windir%\system32, or HKLM\Software. The options are: - Enabled: (Default) Application write failures are redirected at run time to defined user locations for both the file system and registry. - Disabled: Applications that write data to protected locations fail. Vulnerability: This setting reduces vulnerabilities by ensuring that legacy applications only write data to permitted locations. Counter Measure: Enable the User Account Control: Virtualize file and registry write failures to per-user locations setting. Potential Impact: None. This is the default configuration. Fix: (1) GPO: Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options\User Account Control: Virtualize file and registry write failures to per-user locations (2) REG: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System!EnableVirtualization
