Excluding objects from Real-Time scanning

If you want to exclude an object (file or folder) from being scanned by Real-Time scanning, add the filename or the full path of the object into the excluded objects list in Policy Manager or PSB portal.

For example:

  • Filename: text.txt (all text.txt file is excluded from Real-Time scanning)
  • Full path with filename: C:\test\test.txt (only text.txt in the C:\test folder is excluded from Real-Time scanning)
  • Folder full path: C:\test (everything in C:\test folder is excluded from Real-Time scanning)
  1. Via Policy Manager (Advanced mode)
    1. Select the domain or computer you want to apply the exclusion to from the Policy domains panel.
    2. Under the Policy tab, expand F-Secure Anti-Virus X.XX > Settings > Settings for Real-Time Protection > Scanning Options > File Scanning > Inclusions and Exclusions.
    3. Click Excluded Objects Enabled, and change the setting to Enabled.
    4. Click on the Lock icon. This enforces the setting and disallows users from making changes to the setting.
    5. Click Excluded Objects.
    6. Type in the filename or the full path of the object that you want to exclude, and press Enter.
    7. Tick the Disallow user changes box on the top-left side of the Excluded Objects interface panel. This locks and enforces the settings you have made, and it will disallow the user to make changes to the settings.
    8. Click on the Distribute policies (Ctrl+D) button to distribute.
  2. Via PSB Portal
    1. Log in to your PSB Portal.
    2. Go to the Profiles tab. Under Computer profiles, select the profile you want to apply the exclusion to.
    3. Click on Scanning exclusions. On the right-pane, click on the Excluded objects from real-time scanning slider to green to enable the function.
    4. Click on the Lock icon to the right of the Excluded objects from real-time scanning setting. This enforces the setting and disallows users from making changes to the setting.
    5. To add an object to the list, click Add object, then type in the filename or the full path of the object you want to exclude. Click the Tick icon to apply.
    6. Click on the Lock icon to the right of the Objects excluded from real-time scanning setting. This enforces the setting and disallows users from making changes to the setting.
    7. Click Save and Publish.
