Hi I've been using Paint.net for quite a while and it's always updated with no issues up until recently; I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the latest version but am getting this error below, any help would be greatly appreciated!  I had a look through the forums but didn't see anything specific to this:

 

System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'PaintDotNet.SystemLayer.FileSystem' threw an exception. ---> System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'C:\Users\jscop\AppData\Local\paint.net\SessionData\1178967519' is denied.
   at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)

Windows Defender has a new option, "Controlled folder access." Make sure it's disabled. It's a stupid feature that breaks a ton of legitimate applications.
