This section enables you to exclude files and folders from scanning. We do not recommend that you alter these options, to ensure that all objects are scanned for threats.
Path – path to excluded files and folders
Threat -if there is a name of a threat next to an excluded file, it means that the file is only excluded for the given threat, not completely. Therefore if that file becomes infected later with other malware, it will be detected by the antivirus module. This type of exlusion can be used only for certain types of infiltrations and it can be created either in the threat alert window reporting the infiltration (click Show advanced options and then select Exclude from detection), or in Setup > Quarantine using the context menu option Restore and exclude from detection on the quarantined file.
