The Android Studio is slowed down by the real-time scan, must re-add the ability to exclude folders

I've noticed that Mcafee has not continued to support excluding folders from real-time scanning for years, which has slowed down software like Android Studio considerably. Excluding the main AS program files from the scan has no effect.

This is extremely disruptive to daily use, and any functionality of Android Studio is extremely limited and slowed down by at least 20 times.

If you refuse to add the ability to exclude folders to your security center, I will have to stop using Mcafee and stop renewing my subscription next cycle  : )

Android Studio version: 2021.2.1 Patch 2

Macfee AntiVirus version: 16.0

Security Center: 19.18

VirusScan: 26.3

Run on Windows 11 Home, 9750H
