    How do I prevent SecurityCenter active protection from removing a valid program?

    rdcpro

      I've used Xenu, a link checking tool, for years, and the recent update to SecurityCenter now deletes the executable, claiming it's "Artemis|bunchoflettersandnumbers".  When I check te McAfee web site link, it doesn't know anything about the virus (because it's not really a virus at all, but a program I've installed).

       

      I can turn the "extended protection" off, and then Xenu installs correctly, but since this tool isn't checking for real viruses, I should be able to flag something as safe, just like you can with a firewall rule.

       

      Is there any way to whitelist something, or do I just leave Active Protection turned off?

       

      Honestly, this has been a frustrating experience--it's not clear at all from the support site how you post a question, and it took an inordinate amount of time for me to get to the point of being able to post this.
