Windows Firewall Control

Following a clean install of Windows 10.
I installed my Trend Micro and my Firewall (Windows Firewall Control 4). I have put the firewall on the exceptions list, but every start up of Windows, Trend Micro reports Windows Firewall Control (wfc.exe) as a threat. I have to click 'open file' every time to allow it to run.
I have the same problem with Internet Download Manager (idman.exe), even though it is also on the excluded list!
Can you help please?
Thank you.
