After a recent update, I started getting a "detection" of an 8 year old game "no cd" patch
as Malware Gen. It's never caused a problem and never tried to access the internet.
So, I want to permanently suppress the detection of this file, while not changing it's location
in the filesystem or preventing me from running it (i.e. blocking it).
When I search the archives, I see people asking for an "ignore" option on the result
screen (i.e., instead of chosing "move to chest," so you can choose "ignore").
Although they own the computer, they're told they really don't know what they're doing
and don't want that option. Well I do know what I'm doing and do want that option,
which MBAM provides, for example. The customer is always right.
I did try the "exclude" mechanism, but the exclude list for the real time file list
doesn't seem to affect the "scan now" on demand scan, and the "scan now"'s exclude
list is only for folders, not files. (I did manage to trick it into accepting a file
name, but didn't work--the exe in question was still "detected".) I don't want to
move the file into a different directory.
