Real-time Scan: Scan Exceptions

The following settings are configurable:

  • Enable or disable exceptions

  • Exclude Trend Micro product directories from scans

  • Exclude other directories from scans


    All subdirectories in the directory path you specify will also be excluded.

  • Exclude file names or file names with full path from scans

  • Exclude files with specific extensions from scans


    Wildcard characters, such as “*”, are not accepted for file extensions.


If Microsoft Exchange Server is running on the endpoint, Trend Micro recommends excluding all Microsoft Exchange Server folders from scanning. To exclude scanning of Microsoft Exchange server folders on a global basis, go to POLICIES > Global Security Agent Settings and select Exclude the Microsoft Exchange server 2003 folders in the General Scan section on the Security Settings tab.
