[BUG] Hardened Mode Exclusions Don't Work Correctly
« on: June 29, 2014, 07:23:33 PM »
I have the latest 2021 build currently, but it's irrelevant because this has been an ongoing problem on two different computers since hardened mode was first introduced:

- If I get the popup for a program it works (mostly).
- If I add an entry manually or edit that previously working entry (for instance there are times when it's all caps) then upon a reboot and looking at the exclusions again, the entries are not present - only ones previously unedited and added via the popup are present.
- Sometimes, even though an entry was added and was fine for a long time, and even though the entry is present, all of a sudden the popup is popping up again asking me to add the same thing that's already there.

I can't believe this hasn't been fixed yet or no on else is experiencing it.

Does anyone know where the exclusion list is stored?  registry or file?

Edit:
exclusions entered into the scan side list also do not often work, sometimes they do
