    A Microsoft Windows Explorer window opens.

  3. Select the process you want to add to the list.
  4. Click the Open button.

    The process name is displayed in the line.

  5. Click the Add button.

    The process will be added to the list of protected processes.

  6. Select the added process.
  7. Click the Set exploit prevention techniques button.

    The Exploit prevention techniques window opens.

    • Apply all available exploit prevention techniques.

      If this option is selected, the list cannot be edited. By default, all available techniques are applied to a process.

    • Apply selected exploit prevention techniques

      If this option is selected, you can edit the list of impact reduction techniques applied:

      1. Select the check boxes next to the techniques that you want to apply to protect the selected process.
      2. Select or clear the Apply Attack Surface Reduction technique check box.

    • In the Do not deny modules if launched in the Internet Zone field, select the check boxes next to the options for which you want to allow modules to be launched:
      • Internet
      • Local intranet
      • Trusted URL
