When configuring exclusions in the resident scanner, special symbols – wildcards, such as “*” and “?” can be used.
– If you wish to exclude all files in a folder, type the path to the folder and use the mask “*.*”.
– If you want to exclude doc files only, use the mask“*.doc“.
– If the name of an executable file has a certain number of characters (and characters vary) and you only know the first one for sure (say “D”), use the following format: “D????.exe”. Question marks replace the missing (unknown) characters.
