A solution to 'Exception List' being ignored

I've been having problems with the Real Time Scanner ignoring my additions to the exception list.

The problem appears to have been the fact that I had added multiple entries to the files, after they were updated.

Today I went back and deleted everything in the list and added the effected files one last time... and it started working!

So, when you file gets updated, it appears that you must first remove any old references to that file from the exception list before adding the new file entry.

Hi @Sakshale 

Thanks for the info, that is the expected behavior of Real time scan exceptions.
