hello,

In 32 bit

Browse to the registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SYMANTEC\SYMANTEC ENDPOINT PROTECTION\AV\EXCLUSIONS

Note: On 64bit window machines the registry path is:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\WOW6432Node\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\AV\Exclusions

Hi Pandher  :)

I'll give you a cheesy suggestion which always works...

Step 1: Open your Registry

Step 2: Click Computer

Step 3: Hit "Ctrl F"

Step 4: Type "EXCLUSIONS"

Step 5: Keep clicking Next till you spot an entry preferably under "Computer\HKLM\Software\Symantec\SEP\........."

PS: Please make sure that after the policy is updated the policy serial number is updated on the client before you follow this drill.

Keep us posted on what you find  :) 

Cheers  :)

Ok so its a 64 bit os and i see the registry keys are different. I can see the entries there. I wanted to exclude the lotus notes folder scanning and nsf files since it was creating slowness. I do see the entries here as per attached screenshot:

 

is that ok? can someone please verify?
