XMRig - Monero mining software and quarantine despite exceptions

Hello


I'm having a hard time mining a cryptocurrency while using BitDefender. It seems developer wants to be smarter than user so much, that program has become non-intuitive.

I added all exceptions for my miner - XMRig. For all executable files and a whole folder all protection features are turned off (antivirus: on-demand scan, on-access scan, embedded scripts; online threat prevention, advanced prevention). Despite my actions, Bitdefender keeps putting XMRig.exe into quarantine while running. Typically, a few minutes after program starts.

How can I solve it?
