To exclude files and folders from malware scans

  1. In the Client Security console, create or edit a policy. For details about how to create or edit a policy, see Creating, editing, copying, and deleting policies.
  2. In the New Policy or Edit Policy dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
  3. Under Exclusions from malware scans and immediately to the right of the File and folder paths box, click Add. The Exclude Path dialog box appears.
  4. Enter the full path to a file or folder you want to exclude. Note the following:
  • File and folder exclusions are enforced only at the exact locations you specify in the policy. If the file or folder you specify exists in a different location on a client computer than the location you specified in the policy, the file or folder is not excluded from scans on the client computer.
  • You can use environment variables, such as %SYSTEMDRIVE%, to specify paths. For example:%SYSTEMDRIVE%cdb.exeIf the variable does not exist on a client computer, Client Security cannot correctly enforce the exclusion.
  • Client Security does not scan the subfolders of an excluded folder.

Click OK, and then click OK to close the Exclude Path dialog box.

  1. Continue adding exclusions, as needed.
  2. After you finish creating or editing the policy, click OK.
