There are two Exclusion lists, the one you've posted a picture (on-access) and the on-demand scanning exclusions.
Is there any scheduled scanning (on-demand) on clients?
Maybe the file is a false positive, why do you want to exclude it from scanning?

the file is written in exclusions list,as shown on picture, is it right?
when I try to extract this file from archive, avast immediately moves it to chest, but that not right, I don't want avast to scan that file, and some other types of files....

Sorry for getting back to you so late, I must have missed this post... :-[

Anyway, to answer your question, you need to add something like

*\admdll.dll

or, better, full path to the admdll.dll file in question (this will prevent scanning of the file only in that specific location - which is slightly more secure).


Thanks
