Process exclusions (Windows)

You can exclude any process running from an application. This also excludes files that the process uses (but only when they are accessed by that process).

If possible, enter the full path from the application, not just the process name shown in Task Manager.

Example

%PROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Office\Office 14\Outlook.exe

To see all processes or other items that you need to exclude for an application, see the application vendor's documentation.

You can use wildcards and variables.

For help on using exclusions see Using exclusions safely.
