    McAfee Blocking McAfee Validation Trust Protection (mfevtps.exe) ; Also Full Path to SVCHOST.EXE In Exceptions?


      I see this in our ePO server's threat events often. Is there any way to prevent this from filling our logs while keeping McAfee safe? Perhaps I should add SVCHOST.EXE to the rules exceptions?

      Also is it a better idea to add C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SVCHOST.EXE as an exception rather than SVCHOST.EXE, in case some malware names itself SVCHOST.EXE?
