Exclude Files From Scans

Exclusion Lists let you exclude applications you use or specific files or folders that you know to be malware-free from On-demand or Real-time scans. To set file exclusions, you can modify the Exclusion Lists for On-demand or Real-time scans.

Important! Use Exclusion Lists with caution. If you do not have a specific reason to exclude a file or folder from scanning, we strongly recommend that you do not experiment with it. Excluding files or folders from scanning can lead to virus infection.
