I have an active subscription to McAfee SecurityCenter and I have been using the antivirus and firewall for just over 5 years on my Dell inspiron 17Rse running Windows 10.
I am however, aware that Windows Defender has matured in that time and so before my McAfee subscription expires (around this time next year) I wish to "kick the tyres" on that free alternative.
To make this trial migration as painless as possible I'd like to save two lists to a text file:
- The list of files/folders the antivirus component has been told to not scan
- The list of program permissions the firewall component has been told to not block
Is this possible?
If so, is there a set of instructions you can refer me to?
Of course the GUI allows me to view both lists but that GUI is also extremely slow to load each list and, once loaded, the list is cumbersome to scroll and impossible to sort by field/column content.
