Trend asked me if I trust a program to make some changes on my PC; I said Yes ( the program is MiniMinder) and everything is OK.

Where is this information stored? If I want to "untrust" this program later on how do I do it?

PS : MiniMinder is not displayed on "Exception List"

Hi Claudiu,

I quote Claudia:

Folder Shield is a new feature of Trend Micro Security 2017, which adds an extra layer of defense that limits access to files within the protected folder, and also prevents ransomware from encrypting your selected folder. 

In another word, you will be notified if any programs try to open or make unauthorized changes to files protected by Folder Shield. 

As Tom mentioned, only if you 100% trusted the program, then you can add the program to the Trusted Program List of Folder Shield by following steps:

  1.  Open the main console of Trend Micro Security
  2.  Click Data, then select Configure which in the Folder Shield section
  3.  Click Trusted Program List link. 

  4. Click +Add, then select Browse to search for the program you want that can access files protected by Folder Shield.

Please let us know if the above procedure works for you.

Kind regards,
