I have a app called Vorpx that when starting creates a temp file that it uses. However as soon as its created it gets quarantined and the app fails to load.
The file is created in c:\users\<Username>\AppData\Local\Temp\Vorpx
The file has a random name each time the app is run so I cannot use a file name exclusion.
I want to exclude that folder, however there does not seem to be an option. Only the ability to exclude a specific filename. The only solution is to switch off Real Time Scanning which defeats the purpose of this product.
Does anyone know how to exclude a specific folder? or if wildcards can be used within the file exclusion? (Naturally only for that folder)
Any help would be appreciated.
With the New Next Generation Scanning Engine, unfortunately you can only exclude files. Even then if deemed Suspicious/Unknown they will will also be detected.
Thanks for the update. I've just found that the application thats running as a service is also now getting Quarantined, Presumably as its generating the temp files. As there is no method to stop McAfee from Quarantining these legitimate files i guess i'll have to move to another antivirus product that supports exclusions at a folder level. Im happy that the application is legitimate. Shame as i've been a big fan of McAfee for well over 10 years now,
Also today my son found his game "Just Cause 3" also got Quarantined with the executable removed after performing a steam install. Seems McAfee is quite sensitive.
Thanks for your help.
You are quite welcome. Please note that most Major Anti-Virus Vendors initially quarantine Steam/Minecraft/Foxhud Downloaders/Unpackers due to revised Version updates.
