    On-Access scan appears to cause IIS application pools to recycle?


      I'm working with software that has heavy use of application pools in IIS. The issue was that these pools were recycling on a fairly regular basis, although were not scheduled to do so. With improved logging, we started seeing that the WAS service was claiming that the pools were recycled due to a configuration change, even though there was no change to the configuration.


      There seemed to be a great deal of anecdotal evidence that anti-virus or back-up software can have this effect. With the uninstall of McAfee being the only change, what had been a daily event stopped occurring altogether.


      Does anyone know if there is an official McAfee stance on this? And should it be enough to set exclusions on folders that contain .config files? Or simply exclude *.config altogether?
