Antivirus and Security Software

Turbo applications are compatible with all major antivirus and security software vendors. However, there are many configurations of these which can cause errors, hangs, or false positives in Turbo applications. If encountering issues, a good first step is to disable any security software to rule it out as a possible cause. If disabling the security software fixes the issue, further analysis is required to determine if there is indeed a security compromise or if it is an incompatability with your application.

Add Turbo Folders To Whitelist

Whitelist the following Turbo folders in your security software to avoid issues caused by security hooks and false positive detections:

  • Turbo Client folder for current user: C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Turbo
  • Turbo Client folder for all users: C:\Program Files (x86)\Turbo
  • Turbo Client repository folder for all users: C:\ProgramData\Turbo
  • Turbo Client folder alias for current user: C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Spoon (if it exists)
  • Turbo Client folder alias for all users: C:\Program Files (x86)\Spoon (if it exists)

Sophos Endpoint Protection

In some configurations, Sophos Endpoint Protection application hooks can cause hangs in Turbo applications. If this is the case, exclusions can be added to prevent Sophos from inserting itself into the application.

Add the Turbo Folders from the section above to the Global Exclusions. For more information on adding Global Exclusions, please see docs.sophos.com.

Configure an Exploit Mitigation Exclusion to prevent Sophos from affecting the container environment. For more information on configuring Exploit Mitigation Exclusions, please see docs.sophos.com.

Application Restriction Software

Turbo applications may be blocked by system security settings or third-party security software.

Software Restriction Policies

When Turbo applications are blocked by Software Restriction Policies, users may observe an error that the program is blocked by group policy (0x800704EC) in a dialog or in the Turbo Client logs.

This program is blocked by group policy. For more information, contact your system administrator. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800704EC)

To resolve the issue, add an exemption in the Software Restriction Policies for the Turbo Client folders by creating the following rules:

  • Name: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Turbo\*.* Type: Path Security Level: Unrestricted
  • Name: C:\Program Files (x86)\Turbo\*.* Type: Path Security Level: Unrestricted

Windows Applocker

When Turbo applications are blocked by Windows Applocker, users may observe an error that the program is blocked by group policy (0x800704EC) in a dialog or in the Turbo Client logs.

Administrators will also see an event in Event Viewer\Applications and Services Logs\Microsoft\AppLocker when a software is blocked.

To resolve the issue, add an exemption in the AppLocker Executable Rules for the Turbo Client folders by creating the following rules:

  • Permission: Allow User or group: Everyone Condition: Path: C:\Users\*\Appdata\Local\Turbo\*
  • Permission: Allow User or group: Everyone Condition: Path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Turbo\*
  • Permission: Allow User or group: Everyone Condition: Path: C:\ProgramData\Turbo\*

Symantec Endpoint Protection

For customers who use Symantec Endpoint Protection, the system administrator should review the security configuration under SEP Manager > Application and Device Control policy > Application Control to ensure that Turbo applications are not being blocked.
