Exception Lists

Tip:

How to find these settings:

Main Console > Settings > Exception Lists

Programs/Folders

You can use this exception list to speed up scans by making them ignore specific files or folders that you already consider safe.

  • Click the Add button to open a window for selecting a file or folder to put on the list. You can only add one file or folder at a time.

  • You can only use the Remove button after marking the checkbox next to at least one thing on the list.

Websites

You can use this exception list to specify websites that should either always or never be blocked from opening.

  • Click the Add button to open a window for selecting a website to put on the list. After typing an address, select whether to block or trust that website from the dropdown list next to Response.

  • You can click the Remove button after marking the checkbox next to at least one thing on the list.

Note:

You can also import the addresses of all the websites currently in your Microsoft® Internet Explorer® Favorites list.

Wireless Connection

Any wireless network identified as risky (networks that redirect your connection without encryption) or dangerous (networks that do not have an authentication process or a valid security certificate) that you have decided to trust will appear on this exception list. If you change your mind about trusting one of the networks, just mark the checkbox next to it and click the Remove button.
