    Regarding adding a file to the exclusion list, would be

    Settings (gear icon on the top right)
    Real-Time Scanning (should be 3rd option)
    Excluded Files > Add Files

    Currently, it's not possible to exclude the entire folder, so you have to exclude the file 1 by 1 (if need to)

    This is for anyone now or in the future who might ask this same question.

    First step is to delete that trash off your pc. Its so bloated with pointless bs that boggs down your pcs performance, its basically malware at this point. Even the guy who first built Mcafee says that he no longer recognizes it as anything more than garbage.
    Im not kidding. I try not to tell people what software to use. Do whatever makes you happy. Except in this instance. Mcafee does more harm than any good you could get from it. Youll almost certainly need http://m.majorgeeks.com/files/details/mcafee_consumer_product_removal_tool.html to actually fully get rid of it.


    I highly suggest sticking with windows defender. It comes prebuilt into windows and is signficantly more user friendly than mcafee. Theres plenty of guides here and on the internet that can show you how to exclude files and whole folders from scans

    Seriously? I Just got this laptop a few days ago and it came preinstalled. Are you sure windows defender is good enough? If so if mc afee is really that bad ill get rid of it and use norton or something else

    trust, you don't need anti viruses anymore. the whole industry is a marketing gimmick.

    +1 for just windows defender

    I agree with what he said. Mcafee comes with almost every windows pc because they are kind of useless (high cpu usage) with limited utility.
