The Exclusions section allows you to view and edit the list of files, folders and programs that should be exempt from scanning or monitoring.

You may use wildcards or environment variables. When using wildcards: ? specifies one random character and * specifies a sequence of random characters. Clicking on the text environment variables opens the Environment variables tester.

Variables as they are seen by the software service do not necessarily resolve to the same paths that you can see in your user context. Most variables resolve to multiple paths because the software protects at system level, across all user accounts.

The Environment variables tester is invaluable for verifying exactly what paths will be excluded if you use a particular variable. Simply select a variable placeholder from the scrollable list on the left and the corresponding paths will be displayed in the adjacent pane to the right.

The Copy selected button copies the placeholder to the clipboard, allowing you to then quickly and easily paste it when creating an exclusion. Please note that a trailing slash must be added after the placeholder to indicate that it is a path, for example: %temp%\

Tips & Tricks

  • Files cannot be excluded using filenames only.  A path or environment variable needs to precede the filename. For example, c:\temp\xyz.exe or %temp%\xyz.exe
  • Excluded folder names must always end with a backslash. For example, c:\temp\
  • Excluded folder names automatically exclude sub folders. For example, c:\temp\ also excludes c:\temp\apps\
Correct examples:
Exclusion What it excludes Excludes subfolders
c:\temp\* or c:\temp\ Excludes all files in c:\temp\
%temp%\* or %temp%\ Excludes all files in %temp%
%temp%\apps\ Excludes all files in %temp%\apps\
c:\temp\%USERNAME%\*.tmp Excludes all .tmp files in c:\temp\%USERNAME%\
c:\temp\*.exe Excludes all .exe files in c:\temp\
