McAfee Internet Security 2016 - Exclude Folder from Real Time Scan.
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)
Re: McAfee Internet Security 2016 - Exclude Folder from Real Time Scan.
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.
