We don’t recommend using filename exclusions as malware might have the same name as that of a file that you trust. Therefore, in order to avoid excluding potential malware from being scanned, use a fully qualified path to the file that you want to exclude. If you still want to use the filename exclusions, please be aware that due to the changes in the improved basic detection engine made in the 3.5.0 Release, files that have been excluded based on filename might not run from the first attempt. If this happens, please allow a few seconds to pass from the first try and then launch the file again (this slight delay is caused due to the fact that when the first execution attempt happens, the file could be detected and quarantined and, behind the scenes, we will remove it from quarantine and make it available for execution).
