Please excuse what may be a pedantic question, but your exclude file contains no reference to a directory called 'testfile'. Is that the exact name used ?
Btw, with the use of /SECURE you don't need to also have /PROGRAM /UNZIP /ANALYZE.
/SECURE covers all of those too.
Sorry for the typo on my part. I placed the eicar.com test file in the testvirus directory. This direcectory is in my documents folder.

Paths are not relative it seems, and require a starting drive defined.
*\test is not resolved in the exclude file.
c:\*\test is resolved in the exclude file.

I had tried different ways of writing the exclusions and couldn’t get them to work. I must not have tried the way you wrote them. After correcting the paths, I placed the test virus in all the directories and it successfully skipped them all in a full scan.
Thank you for the help!
