Adding exceptions to McAfee?

How do I put in exceptions to McAfee Security Center? I have a custom launcher for a PC game one of the files of which McAfee thinks is a virus and removes everytime I install it!

I go to Restore > Files > check the files quarantined, but where's the restore button?

Windows Vista

Security Center
version 9.3
Build: 9.3.151

version 13.3
Build: 13.3.127
DAT version: 5624.0000

Personal Firewall
Version 10.3
Build: 10.3.111

RE: Adding exceptions to McAfee?

Unfortunately there is no way to make an exception. But, if you forward the file to Avert labs there is a good chance that they will cover it by an extra update.
