Some systems create files that are automatically generated with specific name but number of the file adjusts and do not like to be scanned by atntivirus scanning. So example applications crates file ABC00001.ini in the windows directory the next day it creates which increases incrementally each day.

Excluding the whole windows folder from scanning would be too much of a risk so there should be some way to exclude the file ABC*.ini to include the incremental numbering.

I am also agree with you that if this option will add in file exclusion rule then it will come helpfull, because there are lot of files which we are required to exclude from scanning because of not avaialbe this option we added the folder where that files placed. So it is risky work.

Admin- Kindly review it and try to modified in next release.
