TV tring to write to the install folder when not active?

Say what you will, but after seeing an anamolous dialog box regarding  Teamviewer, I set the install folder for TV in windows 10 to be a controlled acess folder. I thought "why give any old hacker (or virus for that matter) logging into my computer access to such a sensitive folder?" I didn't expect any activity to happen but did it just on the thought that it sounded like a safer option. Was I right? Since then several times a day a brief notice pops up that writes to this folder were blocked. Is it something TV is doing and I should not have changed the folder access setting or is it not something TV does and thus a smart move on my part?
