    I'm demoing F-Secure AV 2011 right now and thought I'd see how it reacts to the test file. So I download and highlight it in Windows Explorer; F-Secure pops up a window saying "Virus blocked" and asks me what I want to do, which is how I configured it to respond. Good.

    But when I go into F-Secure's realtime scanning settings and add (using the full path to the file) to the excluded objects list, it doesn't seem to have any effect. F-Secure still detects when I highlight the file and pops up the action window. Is the Exclusion list broken in F-Secure, or am I not understanding how it's supposed to work?
