How to Set Up Trusted Processes

Trusted processes are applications or software that are permitted to see all protected objects; nothing is hidden from trusted processes. You should consider setting up certain applications as trusted processes, such as anti-virus software that needs to check protected files for computer viruses or backup software that needs to archive your data.

To set up trusted processes, or edit your list of existing trusted processes:

  1. Click the Processes button or select Security > Trusted Processes.
  2. In the Select Trusted Processes dialog box:
    • Click Add to List to add new trusted processes. Navigate to the program you want and select it.
    • Click Delete to remove a selected process from the list. You can Ctrl+click and/or Shift+click to select more than one process at a time.
    • Click Clear All to remove all processes from the list.
  3. Click OK to accept your changes.
