Not sure if this is related to your specific issue, but I run Windows 10 with latest 2004 update and have always had all the JTAlert Folders and files listed in windows Defender to exclude. However, JTAlert still was not running decodes.
I had to go into Defender and turn OFF the following to get JTAlert working again:
Virus & threat Protection
- Check Apps & Files - OFF
- Smart Screen for Microsoft Edge - OFF
- SmartScreen for Microsoft Store Apps - OFF
- Controlled Folder Access - OFF
