Excluded objects - variables and F-SECURE\COMMON\ALERTS\ scan errors

alsimmo Posts: 38 Observer



As per subject line, I have several questions.  I'm sure I already know the answers but seeking confirmation on this.


The first is are wild card values ok to add in PM as excluded objects i.e. %APPDATA% or %ALLUSERSPROFILE%? 


Is the use of wild card exceptible such as C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\*.tmp for example?  In addition, if I exclude a folder is it represented as C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files or C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\* or something else? 


Lastly, I frequently have scanning errors on a number of servers - 'An error occurred while scanning \DEVICE\HARDDISKVOLUME12\PROGRAM FILES (X86)\F-SECURE\COMMON\ALERTS\A555.TMP'.  Should this folder be excluded from real-time scanning too?


Thanks in advance for your time.
