KTS is blocking my Oculus Rift S from working, I’m not able to diagnoise issue.

The Oculus app itself launches fine without issue and shows the Rift connected and “working”.

I have the Oculus app set to be Trusted in the managed applications.  All the sub components within this are set to trusted.

When I put on the headset I can hear the audio but it just sits at the three dots and I never get to my virtual desktop (steam or oculus).

I know it is KTS causing the issue as I only started having the problem when I moved to KTS from windows defender.

If I disable KTS and then re-plug in my Rift it works without issue.

If I just re-plug my Rift after start-up it continues to not work without issue.

I’ve had a good old poke around to look for any complaints about Kaspersky blocking anything and can’t see anything..

I can see this message, this suggests that “somehow” the audio stream to the headset is being allowed but somehow the video stream is not (guessing)..

Application is allowed to receive audio stream;

Oculus Platform Runtime Application;oculus-platform-runtime.exe;

C:\Program Files\Oculus\Support\oculus-platform-runtime;17556;DESKTOP-8D9ET23\44744;Active user;Access to audio capturing devices;Allowed;Allowed;;;;;;;;Rights

Any ideas?
