To see exceptions at the client side

Note:To see the exclusions that the client creates, you can examine the contents of the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\AV\Exclusions registry. You must not edit this registry directly. You can configure any additional exclusions by using centralized exceptions.

On a 64 bit server using Exchange 2007 or 2010, the path in the registry to confirm auto exclusions is slightly different. The path includes the WOW6432node key.
HKLM\Software\WOW6432node\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\AV\Exclusions\.
