How do you undo exclusions?
« on: July 10, 2015, 09:33:16 PM »
I may have just added a dangerous .exe to my exclusions, however I can't find a way of removing it again. Looking in the exclusions tab of the File System Shield settings shows only the default exclusions... where's the one I just added? It should be there, right?

Thanks.

In the avastUI > Settings > General - scroll down to Exclusions and expand the exclusions section. These are global exclusions.

Depending on what it was that alerted and you opted to exclude, it would be in one of the three tabs: File Paths; DeepScreen; Hardened mode. See attached image, click to expand.

Aha, there it is! Thanks guys, I didn't know there was an exclusions option outside of the shield settings.
