    I excluded a whole drive from scanning, because it only contains my source codes, but EAV seems still to scan them. At least, the real time scanner shows me "Scanned Object: ...." with a path to the excluded drive.

    Try putting the eicar test file to the excluded folder to see if it's actually detected.
