Add exception in Plusnet Mcafee

Hi there,

Does anyone know how I can exclude a folder on my computer from any scanning/protection from the Plusnet Mcafee? The interface is really difficult to use and I can't find the right option.

Intel's McAfee antivirus (etc) packages give very inadequate protection indeed and engender a false sense of security.

Kaspersky, Norton or Bitdefender Internet Security packages are far better bets.   Usual disclaimers

Hi there @rondon9897 If you click on the Virus and Spyware Protection tab, and then click on Scan Your PC you should have an option to select a custom scan where you can exclude folders from a scan. I hope this helps you.
