Problem in excluding files!!


I've been struggling with the same problem as solved in this thread ..

Whenever i change the Access Protection exclude list in the VirusScan Console to the proper, it works, the APL log looks good and the red ring around the McAfee logo goes away.. But one minut after it changes my setting back, so it removes safeservice.exe automaticely and the error goes on.

Is it being overruled by something or what? I can't figure out where else to change the setting.

I'm using VirusScan Enterprise 8.5.0i and McAfee ProtectionPilot version

Thanks in advance happy

ProtectionPilot and Exclusions

Hi KMadsen,

Well I think you kind of answered your own question: ProtectionPilot is probably resetting the exclusions that you made manually at the PC (under VirusScan Console). Check the PP settings and make the exclusion there for your PC (or group) and see if it resets a minute later.

Have fun, and let us know how it is going.

RE: Again

So when you exclude safeservice from your VSE access protection rules.. makes your spam filter not work? thats a new one..

Can you log it with corporate support so we can get more information?
