Hello, Please move this topic if this isn't the right forum for it. When I add an exclusion to Real Time File System Protection, subfolders are included? There's a syntax to it? The following examples has the same results? E:\ E:\*.* E:\* Edit: Tested with eicar.com and "E:\" doesn't seem to do the expected: exclude from volume/path and subfolders. I didn't find any related details on the help files. Also, I would like to suggest the removal of Uninstall and other unecessary shortcuts from the Start menu as recommended by Microsoft’s best practices article for the Start menu: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/windows/desktop/aa511447.aspx.
