Excluded file not excluded

Montly I have the need to download a program for work. And every time McAfee Security Center flags that program as dangerous. I found the way to supposedly  exclude it from analysis but it keeps preventing the program from running.

How this works? How can this be accomplished?

Thanks for your help.

Re: Excluded file not excluded


Please check the reputation of the file in question with the help of VirusTotal (www.virustotal.com). This will give us an idea whether the file is really malicious or incorrectly detected by McAfee.

We should be able to make a move after you post the result of VirusTotal Scan.
