CIS Version; 7.0.317799.4142
I recently downloaded gegeeks toolkit of useful apps, but every time I browse them I get malware warnings. I have excluded the folder involved, I have also excluded each of the tools that CAV identifies as malware… but every time I browse I get the same files I’ve already excluded.
The apps I have excluded are not listed in the AV ‘excluded applications’ (this list is empty), they have been listed in ‘File Rating > Trusted Files’.
I see there are other reports of the same problem (e.g. https://forums.comodo.com/antivirus-help-cis/exclude-folder-problem-t106704.0.html), but didn’t want just to post a ‘Me too’.
What happens when you add the folder to the Excluded Paths of the AV exclusions section?
I said I’d excluded the folders in my OP… I have tried adding as;
Try adding J:\GEGeek ToolKit* to Exluded Applications. Then it will be excluded from the AV resident shield as well.
You may need to work a little bit around as it only accepts files to be excluded. But a path can be edited if I recall correctly.
Does that do the trick?
Thanks EricJH, that’s got it. I had to add an executable (any exe will do) and then edit the entry with the correct path… No more warnings
Adding paths to ‘Excluded applications’ works, but adding paths to ‘Excluded paths’ doesn’t… There’s something very wrong there !
