Protected file and safe list

Hi all
xp sp3
cis ver 4.0 …

I added a text file located on desktop to my protected file.

However when I tried to modifiy it , defens+ alert did not appeared.

was it because notepad is on global safe list, if it is the case then it raises another qustion.

files on comodo global list has unresrticted acess to all resources or d+ is not working as it should be…?

diagnostic did not finds any error.

any help…
