Cannot add Microsoft Office to Applications List for the Work Profile

edited June 22 in Utilities

I am not permitted to add OUTLOOK.EXE, for example, to the Application List for the Work Profile. The OK button will not light up when I select this file. I can select other files like FIREFOX.EXE, for example. My goal is to add Microsoft Office applications, Firefox and others to my Work Profile so that Bitdefender does not execute a scan while I am working on critical development projects as it really slows down my PC. What am I doing wrong?
