Application Control - Blocks Windows App Store

FYI - The application Category Web File Transfer blocks the Windows App store on Windows 10 from downloading app updates.

Once I allowed the category Web File Transfer, the app store began to function normally. Seems like it's miss-categorized to me. Tested on m270 running 12.5.3

Considering, the recent Emergency Windows 10 "Large Image" Security Flaw requires an update through the Microsoft Store, others may want to check their networks. https://www.forbes.com/sites/daveywinder/2020/07/01/one-large-image-could-compromise-windows-10-emergency-security-update-confirmed-crtitical-microsoft-vulnerability/
