Exclusions settings

Recommended Posts

Hello!

Happy New Year!:)

Tell me, please:

1) Is it correct for me to add folders to the exclusions of scanning and monitoring?

  I thought, will the EAM double-check the quarantine? After all, it's in the Emsisoft folder!:huh:

  Do we need such exclusions (folders Emsisoft) or is it not necessary?

2) Is it more likely that the MBAM folder is moved to exclusions from scanning?

ps. I use MBAM only as an on-demand scanner.

It shouldn't be necessary to add EAM's folders to its own exclusions. That being said, I am not aware of any way that it could cause problems.

Normally it isn't necessary to add exclusions for an on-demand scanner, however it might help at least somewhat with the scan speed, if EAM is slowing down MBAM's disk access.

Yes thank you!

I worked for 7 years without these exclusions, apparently they really are not needed!

Thanks for the advice!

Correct. We usually only recommend exclusions when other security software has real-time protection.
