The performance of certain server software maybe unstable when accessing files intercepted by an antivirus program. Among such software, for example, are IIS server and server software with domain controller functions. 

You can exclude corresponding file system objects from scan to maintain stability of such software. This can be done in the Trusted zone properties in Exclusion rules.

The table below details the folders recommended to be excluded.
