Exclude drive from scheduled virus scan

Is it possible to exclude specific drives and network shares from scheduled virus scans on V14 running on a win7 machine?  I have several mounted network shares and while I want them scanned by my file server system I want to exclude them from my working desktop.

Right now the files get hit several times, it drags the whole network down, and scans run a really really long time (like more than a day).

Suggestions?

No, only in a custom scan, but the new version which is just about to be released allows exceptions in a manual or a scheduled scan.    The real-time scanner, however, has no exceptions.

By the way, you mentioned V14 so am assuming you mean the home product and have moved it to that section.

If you have a subscription, uninstalling Mcafee and reinstalling from the aussie server will get you 2011 version Peter mentioned.
