Excluding files and processes from virus scanning

Important notes:

- You risk less by specifying files instead of folders.
- Wildcard symbols used in paths of files or folders will slow down the scanning process.
- In McAfee ePO, exclusions from parent policies have to be reset in child policies.
- It is recommended to exclude backup processes, either completely or just for on-read operations (in McAfee this is achieved by defining the processes in the Low-Risk policy).
