If those are the only errors you get, I wouldn' t worry about them 
in general Tamper protection is a method your antivirus uses to detect whenever a 3rd party / outside application is trying to modify / disable or tamper with Antivirus files or settings.
this method was recently added to Antivirus programs, as the majority of new malware will try to disable / terminate antivirus programs the first thing they do after infection.
in this case , the Tamper protection alert originated from rundll32.exe which is a trusted windows process, I am guessing this is related to secondary login AND / OR RDP Console access.
if your antivirus is up & running and you only get this alert infrequently, I would suggest you ignore it .

i noticed i'm running 11.0.2 and im going to upgrade to the latest build. should i upgrade and then make the exculsion or vice versa?

when i upgrade will the new client retain the settings as i have other exclusions because its an exch server?

can i install on top or remove the old and install the new?

1) "should i upgrade and then make the exculsion or vice versa?"

It doesn't matter

2) "when i upgrade will the new client retain the settings as i have other exclusions because its an exch server?"

Yes

3) can i install on top or remove the old and install the new?

You'll upgrade on top, you can migrate the current version to either (MR3) or the latest (MR4)
