Real Time Scan

as a developer i got always high CPU usage when building executables and libraries (DLLs).

when i tried to exclude on file base... it turned out that the file selection box does not support multiple selection... annoying task to add each and every lib and exe.

an option to exclude the bin folder would be the perfect solution, if you cant provide this for whatever reason, plz make the exclude file selection multi selectable!

also bad: whenever i rebuild a file it get automatically removed from the exclusion list...

working on McAfee exclusion list after every build/rebuild is somehow insane

also somehow misdesigned is the list of excluded files, there are only 5 items visible, and unsorted too!

thats not the best UI design.


in reality the real time scanner is unusable when someone creates libs, exes (or whatever files McAfee treats to be scanned) on more frequent base.
