Excluded paths still scanned in ESET Internet Security & ESET Smart Security Premium Posted October 25, 2015 · Edited October 25, 2015 by Corso How do you know that excluded folder are still being scanned? If you put the eicar test file to an excluded folder, is it actually detected? Because eset detects the virus when done scanning. Eset say these files are virus, but i have excluded their paths, but still detects them. This was not the case in v8. Just had to exclude the paths and =not detected so not deleted.
