I know that I can exclude files and folders if I KNOW where the complete absolute path is, but what if I don't know that information because it will: 1. Be in a windows directory in which the name is unknown? (eg, Windows, WINNT, Windows1, etc) 2. Exists in a user's profile, eg c:\docs and settings\Sam\Folder1, but of course that folder will be different for each user... 3. You do not know which drive the file or folder will be on. Exclusions are a very important part of AV file scanners especially on servers, I need to make sure I get these properly configured before so. Thanks, Sam Nod32 3.0 Business Edition.
