Vanguard seems to take issue with the hardware-level monitoring that MSI Afterburner (notably the monitoring via RTSS), Ryzen Master and CPU-Z require in order to work, and so it blocks these processes from initialising and prevents them from starting again. By exiting Vanguard, you will subsequently need to reinstall the application in order for it to work. Not an acceptable solution nor does it resolve the problem, as on reboot I am again faced with the same problem. RTCore64.sys was blocked by Vanguard and now will not load, which is a core process needed for MSI AB to read device information. I have no GPU monitoring or control now, because of Vanguard.
This issue needs to be urgently addressed because this overly-aggressive and intrusive Anti-Cheat is preventing my system from functioning normally because it prevents other (common and widely used) software from monitoring the hardware of my machine.
Did NOBODY think to check these things? These applications are borderline essential for some people's everyday usage and as it stands, Vanguard is entirely unfit for purpose at present, I have come across several people openly admitting to cheating meanwhile I can't monitor my GPU temperature and CPU usage because Vanguard has been poorly configured.
