    Anybody familiar with AOL AVS...

    Is it possible to exclude processes or directories?

    I was unable to find such options within the program. My concern is over 3D gaming performance. I understand that avast! and AntiVir free editions both offer exclusion options. I am curious still about AOL AVS, but really would prefer to be able to exclude certain things. If it is not possible then I may just use one of the other two programs.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Thanks fairyliquidizer. It is good to know that it has no noticeable impact on gaming.

    Does the "new and changed files only" option refer to both on-demands scans as well as the real-time resident protection?

    "Scan new and changed files only" is already the default option for File Anti-Virus
