Files and Folders and Processes Exclusion Defaults

What are the files, folders and processes that are excluded from scanning in VSE8.8 by default?

In other words what doesn't need to be in the exclusion list because it is excluded by default?

Re: Files and Folders and Processes Exclusion Defaults

I don't think anything is excluded by default. If you look at the McAfee Default policy under your On-Access Default Processes policy, there is nothing in the exclusions.

Now, there are default processes excluded from the Access Protection Policies within the McAfee Default policy, but that is not for scanning.

Re: Files and Folders and Processes Exclusion Defaults

In VSE 8.5 there was the option when adding exclusion to exclude "Files protected by Windows File Protection".  In VSE this option went away because those file are excluded by default.  My question is what are those files and their location?
