Using Faronics Deepfreeze with McAfee


The Department I work for has 175 computers-- all with the software Deepfreeze installed. As Deepfreeze has it, a reboot resets all settings and updates to its initial frozen state.We want to bypass all of McAfee installation system and log files, and all directories and registry keys from Deepfreeze so that they run updates and scans normally.  Faronics has a program that allows you to do this called Data Igloo.

I need a list of all the directories and registry keys McAfee uses for operation, so I can exclude them.

Also, after doing research

(p.s. I am not interested in creating a schedule to thaw and update the labs)

Below is information regarding our installation and OS.

OS: Windows 7 64-bit

VirusScan + AntiSpyware Enterprise Version: 8.8.0 (

Client version:

Scan engine 64-bit: 5700.7163

Thank you, this would be very much appreciated.
