New to McAfee, Finding it Difficult to Customize

New to McAfee, Finding it Difficult to Customize

Hi All

I recently got McAfee All Access and I am using Total Protection of my PCs.

I am finding it difficult to customize McAfee to my requirements.

I cannot find exclusion list and I can change the setting so it would ask me what to do with any viruses it finds, for example let me select whether to Add to Exultations, Delete, Fix or quarantine.

Is there a advance UI to do all this?

Thanks

The only time you can add something to an exception list is when it is identified as a PUP (Possibly Unwanted Program) and the software will offer that option.  It is something that we Moderators have been begging McAfee to reintroduce to the home software since they took it away about 7 years ago.

In the meanwhile there are things you can do if software is being incorrectly identified as malware.

The exclusion you were asking about is for real time scanning. You can add folder and file exclusion to both scheduled and custom scanning. this is done by clicking on real time scanning at top of the GUI and them scheduled scan settings. For custom scans click on scan my PC and choose custom scan and set the exclusions.
