Question regarding exclusion settings

Recommended Posts



When you define any exlusions in ESET Smart Security, you can add a complete drive, a compete folder, or just one particular file / program.


If you for example create an exclusion for C:\Program files\Program.exe will then all files which this program is reading / writing, also be excluded from scanning by ESET, or does the exclusion settings only mean that the file Program.exe will not be scanned on ESET On-Demand scans?

the latter is true - the application will not be scanned by ESET. Ie. if it gets infected with a virus, ESET will not recognize it because it'd be excluded from scanning by ALL protection modules, including on-demand scans. As of Endpoint v6, you can run on-demand scans with an option to ignore exclusions.
