RE: on demand scan exclusion..

you need to add "TFTPD32" (no path needed) as an exclusion in the potentialy unwanted programs section, not as an exclusion via path for the on demand scan.

this is being picked up as a PUP detection not a virus detection

annoying isnt it

you should see the daft list of security tools i have exceptions for for my security team

RE: on demand scan exclusion..

ahhhh, thanks much tony. i will give that a shot
