YES, you can. The new Windows Security feature is great! In fact, it is the reason I went back to Windows Defender.
Open Windows Defender Security Center. Then choose Virus & Protection. Then select Ransomware protection. Then choose Allow a app through controlled access. Then find where you have Axxcrypt installed and select the exe file for it. And now you should have no problems.
In a pinch you can turn off Ransomware protection, use Axcrypt, then turn protection back on. But I think it is safe and easy to enable it in your security.
