Hello,
for testing of our mailservers, I have some EICAR Test Signatures on my Harddrive, of course the ad-aware scanner recognice them as virus and quarantine them.
Unfortunately there is no exclude-list were i can exclude certain directories from scanning. (at least I have not found that option)

yours sincerely

Hello,
after scanning, at the Scan Results screen, in the Action drop-down menu you can choose Ignore. You need the ignore list. The files that there are on the list will not be checked then.
I use it, it works.

I hope so I was able to help you.

Robert, I merged your duplicate posts - no need to post twice in the general and AAW users forums. There is no exclusion list, although we have recommended it to Lavasoft. You can set up a profile scan, but you must select all directories except the ones you want excluded. Otherwise, the ignore list of detected items as cinke mentioned.

Cinke, you have 8.3.4? From 8.0.8 through 8.3.2, there was a problem with ignored items being redetected - Lavasoft never mentioned this was fixed. :)

Visitor, yes I have 8.3.4, but I don't understand something. I have two notebook with Ad-Aware 8.3.4. The ignore list isn't working on my work-notebook, but on my own it's working correctly.

so yes, cannot be trusted its function.

Thanks cinke - Lavasoft takes longer to fix bugs when they cannot repeat the problem on their systems.
