    Would it be possible to include detection for Seti@Home/Folding@Home, Bitcoin hashing programs, and other applications that consume all free CPU time as potentially unwanted applications? I really don't want them running on company property since they just waste power and resources, and that seems like it would fit the bill for an unwanted application.

    Just a thought.

    Better still use other methods (than an AV) to control what is running on computers you control.
