VSE Access Protection Rule exclusions not working


I am facing an issue with my VSE 8.8 Patch 7 .

In the access protection rules policy under maximum protection, when I enable the rule block svchost.exe from executing non-windows executables . I am getting a lot of false positives Mcafee and Windows .exe files running DLL's are being blocked.  I have tried adding execptions in two way:

  • by adding paths
  • By adding processes with the extension .exe

None of the exceptions seem to work. After adding the exception I run the process again and it is blocked again by VSE.

Looking for assistance .

Thank You
