McAfee do supply a list of recommended exclusions that I've had success with in the past.
If you do have any custom software, exclude the file extensions of those too.

Port Exclusions: https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB65718
If you run SBS Servers you may need to use a combination of the above.

Thanks for your reply.
I have been through Domain Controller link you provided previously and set those up. I was then referenced to the microsoft website at the end of the mcaffee page and there were a few ones that Microsoft specified that were not included under the mcaffee listings so i thought i'd set them up. Can anyone advise if the exclusions i have posted will work... basically i want it so that the subfolders under the domain folder that that contain the specfied files or file extensions will not be scanned..
Thanks for your help.
I think the way you've done it would work then.
The wildcards should be sufficient to recognise the options you're looking for.
For simplicity you could also change it to look like this:
Just a thought.
I also read in one of the KB's that the subfolder will only work if the exclusion ends with a \ i.e. C:\Windows\System32\ + subfolders. Logically that makes sense as the wildcards in between path and extension would cover all subfolders without needing to check the box.
Thank you for your help.
