Exclusion List for 3rd Party AntiVirus Products

Jump to solution

Hi All,

Is there a list available that shows you what processes or files or folders that 3rd party vendors should be excluding or whitelisting or McAfee products (McAfee Agent, VSE 8.8.0.1804 and ENS / Threat Prevention)? For example McShield.exe you wouldnt want a 3rd party company to scan that file.

Regards

A similar list for ENS would be: https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB87791

Sorry, but we can't confirm that it is ok to exclude these processes as we do not recommend it.

We don't have such a list as we don't recommended having multiple AV scanners installed on systems.

Having multiple AVs can cause a number of various issues such as installation and performance issues, dll injections, etc.

Thanks Chealey,

The below list shows processes that McAfee Agent and VSE use. I presume you could use this as a reference point for 3rd party vendors to whitelist if required?

Is there a similar list for ENS?
