Environment variable exclusions

Recommended Posts



Does ESET support the full use of environment variables such as %appdata% and %userprofile% in its exclusions? Will all environs be resolved on the client?


Also is one directory level considered to use suffix "*.*" and all subfolders "*" ? Please clarify.

System variables will resolve but user variables not as they are not available in the context of the local system account in which ekrn.exe runs.

S0, That is the reasn why %temp% cannt be used in exclusins

I would never exclude the folders for temporary files as this is a common location for malware. Not entirely sure but I assume that %temp% should resolve to %windir%\temp for processes running in the system account anyways.
