The new 2011 product which is in public beta testing right now allows exceptions to be made from a scheduled or a manual scan but that wont be released for a little while yet, until then you can try the steps I outlined here: https://community.mcafee.com/thread/2016
Thanks, the workaround is not something I'd like to do... As I'm having a 3 year license, I assume I can expect that my version will be automatically updated (right?). When is this new version expected? Any more news on new features somewhere already?
The release wont be for a while yet. There is a link on this page that will tell you some more: https://community.mcafee.com/docs/DOC-1236
Until then if you don't want mistaken detections, the steps in that link I posted will help you.
Your software will automatically upgrade to the new one when available to you as long as your subscription is current.
