    McAfee Internet Security 2016 - Exclude Folder from Real Time Scan.

    pugwa5h

      Hi,

      I have a app called Vorpx that when starting creates a temp file that it uses. However as soon as its created it gets quarantined and the app fails to load.

       

      The file is created in  c:\users\<Username>\AppData\Local\Temp\Vorpx

       

      The file has a random name each time the app is run so I cannot use a file name exclusion.

       

      eg.

      F56AA4B02-0.TMP

      2A61FCD3-0.TMP

      D21EE1EE-0.TMP

       

      I want to exclude that folder, however there does not seem to be an option. Only the ability to exclude a specific filename. The only solution is to switch off Real Time Scanning which defeats the purpose of this product.

       

      Does anyone know how to exclude a specific folder? or if wildcards can be used within the file exclusion? (Naturally only for that folder)

       

      Any help would be appreciated.

       

      Thanks.
