Hello @sanjayd

Unfortunately McAfee doesn't have an option to exclude an entire folder. You will have to exclude the files in the folder individually to exclude the contents of the folder.

Re: how can i exclude Folder?

Our program is updated through the internet with a self-extracting winrar file. Each update changes its name eg: act-aran-2018-01, act-aran-2018-02, act-aran-2018-03. For this reason we need to include an exclusion to the folder. Users are not trained to put an exclusion to a file with each update. Please include the folder exclusions again.

Hello @Victor_Hugo_EC

I do agree that having the entire folder exclusion itself is very convenient. I have made a not of this feedback and will send it over to the right team.

You can also post the suggestion to add the folder exclusion feature in our ideas page, which has more visibility.

I had the same problem with McAfee, you know what did, even though I have a 5 year subscription, i uninstalled this and moved to better one where I have option to take my own decision

Re: how can i exclude Folder?

Have same issue with installing Windows subsystem for Linux Kali from Microsoft store. McAfee Real-Time scannng deletes files downloaded by the WSL in the C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Packages folder. 

To have a AV product where you can not install packages from the operating system vendor (Microsoft) on your system is just insane! Please fix!

As suggested earlier, this is by design. Your feedback has been noted.
