Hi @Debugger 

We regret for the inconvenience caused.

McAfee allows you to exclude individual files from being scanned for viruses by the product's Real-Time Scanning feature. When you exclude known, safe files and apps from being scanned, you might see performance improvements as you use your computer.

Kindly refer the below article to exclude files from virus scans on Windows or MAC.

Hi

Your tip doesn't work, every time I recompile my project the exe file is removed from the trusted file list, by obvious reason the exe file is changed. I have the latest version of McAfee LiveSafe

Is there a workaround without inactivate the antivirus program?

BR,

Peter
