Excluded file not excluded

Montly I have the need to download a program for work. And every time McAfee Security Center flags that program as dangerous. I found the way to supposedly  exclude it from analysis but it keeps preventing the program from running.

How this works? How can this be accomplished?

Thanks for your help.

Re: Excluded file not excluded


Please check the reputation of the file in question with the help of VirusTotal ( This will give us an idea whether the file is really malicious or incorrectly detected by McAfee.

We should be able to make a move after you post the result of VirusTotal Scan.
