    Add a "Add to exclusion" in the context menu advanced options (Settings-Antivirus and Antispyware - Exclusions - Yes, I know!)

    Regards

    Excluding files is not a daily task that one would need to access frequently on a daily basis plus creating exceptions is a potential security risk as such files would not be detected if infected by a real virus. Instead, you can switch the cleaning mode to "No cleaning" and exclude the particular file and threat directly withing the alert window.

    You are right Marcos! But On the other hand to add files to the exclusions much easier as shown in my picture, without switching cleaning mode and excluding file from alert window. But it is my opinion...

    Thanks

    Marcos, that's correct, is that what I meant.

    It is unnecessary to change the [default] cleaning mode, so you can add benign files to exclusions with this method.
