Exclusions Question


Recommended Posts

One of our network technicians was recently asked by ESET Support to exclude an executable that resides within a folder that is already excluded in our ESET policy via Remote Administrator.  I was just looking for insight into this.  My thought was that when you exclude a folder, that you are excluding everything within that folder, including executable (.exe) files.  Is this not the case?

That's true. However, I wonder why you would need to exclude a file from scanning as each exclusion lowers the overall protection capabilities.
