Microsoft.store wants to connect to the internet

For the last several days I've started getting a Webroot popup that says that "Microsoft.store followed by some numbers with dashes and maybe some letters" wants to connect to the internet and is not trusted. There are 5-7 of these that you have to click through...EVERY day.
Is anybody else seeing this?
I'm never really sure if I should allow these requests or not. I tried searching the web first to see if the file should be trusted. But nothing came up that was applicable to my search. I do know if I open the Microsoft store, that the boxes will be empty, so they requests do seem to be related to the store...which I never use I might add. I may someday...but I haven't yet.
But why do I have to allow these things everyday? I'm not saying it's Webroot's fault. No doubt it's something Microsoft has done.And yes, I've clicked on Always Allow.

Yes I have seen the same and it's because Microsoft Updated the files in connection to the Microsoft Store so i wouldn't worry! Here is one line I see in my scan log: Fri 2018-08-03 16:51:16.0757 Monitoring process C:Program FilesWindowsAppsMicrosoft.WindowsStore_11807.1001.13.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbweWinStore.App.exe [DC7D4999963D8CE95672FEACDEC6CDA5].

And it's still unknown to the Webroot Cloud Database.

Thanks @ it's much appreciated and I only got the pop-up once and I clicked on Always Allow and it was fine after that for me anyways. 😉

No. I think the last time it happened was yesterday morning.

I did hear back on this one, it is not typical, but if you scan it with WSA, it will show as Good:

The system does consider the file to be whitelisted, but it may continue to show as Unclassified when looked up using the MD5 lookup. 
 
@ - Are you still seeing the "wants to connect to the internet and is not trusted" messages? Please let us know.

True and it's not an area that we can open easily.

Maybe @ can get this file white-listed for us?

WSA just did a scan and it's still Unknown to the Webroot Cloud Database:
