    [W10V1703B15063 x64] Firewall: 'Policy import failed' 'Access is denied' 'code: 5'.

    If you receive this error when importing your own policy in windows firewall with advanced security:
    Windows Firewall with Advanced Security (title)
    Policy import failed.
    Error: Access is denied
    Code: 5
    OK (button)
    Check the Enabled entry in this regedit location: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\FipsAlgorithmPolicy].
    If it is set to 1, you'll receive the error.
    To not have this issue, set it to 0 (zero, nought).
    I have these entries, always in that location:
    I don't know who or what modified this entry...

    Direct link to the feedback hub, where I posted the problem: Feedback Hub - Windows Insider (click).
