    The Add Exception dialog box opens.

  2. Make the following settings:

    Type: Select the type of items you want to skip from on-access and on-demand scanning.

    Upload (only with types Buffer overflow, Suspicious files, and Suspicious behaviors): Upload the file that should be skipped from antivirus scanning.

    Computers Groups: Select the computer groups for which this exception is valid.

    Comment (optional): Add a description or other information.

  3. Click Save.

    The new exception appears on the Exceptions list.

To either edit or delete an exception, click the corresponding buttons.
