Moved to VSE for better response.
I might try something like this:
etc. (Note the trailing \)
However, I am not recommending these exclusions as these are Quite Open.
I firmly believe that Exclusions should be rare and only used when ALL other techniques have proved ineffective.
Try and exclude these folders only for the processes that are impacted, using High/Low-Risk processes, making the DB a Low-Risk Process. Define the exclusion for that process, keeping all other processes at Default and not excluded.
I would suggest this article:
Consolidated list of VirusScan Enterprise exclusion articles
Technical Articles ID: KB66909
Hope this is Helpful.
I know this is rather old post and might have lost its actuality (just came across with it during searching for something), but I think the objects that Sonia was referring to, are in fact files and not folders. Therefore the trailing \ is not needed.
These files are mentioned in the "Comprehensove AV Exclusion recommendation document" from MS, which I happen to have.
On the other hand I fully agree with you on all other statement of yours.
Have a nice day.
