I do not know if this ever happened with 2.7 as I probably took no notice. BUT with EAV3 today I decided to do a context on demand scan of a few folders and notice the realtime exclusion list also affects the on demand scan. scan completed in 0 seconds Number of scanned objects: 0 Number of infected objects: 0 Number of cleaned objects: 0 The folder is not empty, including sub folders and contents there are 36281 files in it. Including a eicar test file that thought I would drop in to it as a test.. Can this be addressed in any way, I don't want realtime on this folder or certain others, but i would like to pull off a On demand on them now and then. Cheers Mav.
