Recently I bought the PC version of Sonic Mania. McAfee Livesafe thinks that SonicMania.exe is a virus (It's not) and from the research I've done I've learned that in order to stop McAfee from trying to quarantine/delete/generally mess with Sonic Mania that I need to create an exclusion for it. Unfortunately, it is not intuitive on how to do this in McAfee Livesafe and I couldn't find any tutorials/threads on how to create an exclusion. (The closest I found was an extremely old thread in which the OP asked essentially the same question and wasn't given an answer)
Thank you in advance.
In most cases Initially Security software will detect games/Steam/Foxhud..etc. Due to the behavior of the Downloader/installer. Please read this FAQ in regards to file exclusion; How to exclude files from VirusScan scanning (TS102056)
Did you receive a Artemis! detection?
It may be that you will have to submit to the Labs and they can determine if it is safe or not.
Versions and builds do change...
