Real Time checking interfering with my programming

I write software, mostly for my own use, using Visual Studio. Total Protection is driving me insane! The  program I am currently working on does slightly non-standard things - e.g. download files from elsewhere on my network by SFTP, add data to an Access database outside its home directory - but it does not attempt low level file system access or touch system files or folders, and there is (IMHO) no good reason to treat it as suspicious. Nevertheless, I cannot develop it without first disabling real time virus checking because TP insists on quarantining any instance of it when I try to run it. When I have a stable version that I want to test over time, I have to exclude it from real time checking, and if I make any change in it, I have to exclude it again!
I am about ready to throw out TP and look for another computer protection solution. At the very least, it should be possible permanently to exclude files in whole directory trees from its over-zealous attentions.

And it is now June 6!!!!!! Today, TP apparently randomly decided to quarantine another of my utility programs when it started on its regular schedule. The executable has not changed for more than a year. This is intolerable!!
