Exceptions for the antivirus scanner can be set in the configuration of the Avira Control Center. To open the configuration follow the following steps:
- Click the Avira icon in your system tray.
- Search for your Antivirus and click Open.
- Click the Setting icon in the lower left-hand corner of your Antivirus window.
As exceptions have to be configured separately for the System Scanner and the Real-Time Protection, please select the corresponding module in the left panel:
- Avira System Scanner
PC Protection → System Scanner → Scan → Exception
- Avira Real-Time Protection
PC Protection→ Real-Time Protection → Scan → Exception
Add files to be omitted for both "System Scanner" and the "Real-Time Protection" in the configuration window. For the Real-Time Protection, you may also specify processes to be omitted from scanning.
