Suspicious File Blocked when building / running code in VS2019.
I keep getting a Suspicios File Blocked message everyting I build and run an application I am running in VB.net in Visual Studio 2019 even though I have made the folder an exception for Trend Micro not to scan in real time.
Originally I had the source code on my NAS server and all was well but the build time is slow over the lan so I mode the source code to a sub folder in My Documents folder. This is when the pop up started. I tried moving the source code to a folder like c:\VS\Projects\Project1 and the pop up still happens.
I know the application is not suspicious and this is happening to any code on the local HDD.
I have made every folder I can think of in the folder structure as an exception in Trend Micro's exception lists and rebooted PC but it seems to ignore these exceptions.
Does anyone have any idea what to do. I can go back to having the source code on my NAS but as I said it makes compiling the app very slow.
