Exclude a folder

You can exclude a folder from your custom or scheduled scan so McAfee doesn't check it for threats.

2 Do one of the following:
To exclude an item from your custom scan, click Scan Your PC, then click Run a custom scan.
To exclude an item from your scheduled scan, click Scheduled Scan.
3 Open the Excluded Files and Folders drawer.
4 Click Add Folder.
5 Choose the file you want to exclude from your scan, then click Open.
