Can I exclude files or processes from scanning?

To set exceptions in Lavasoft Anti-Virus Helix, open the Anti-Virus Helix Configuration (Extras -> Configuration) and activate the Expert mode first.

The exceptions are configured for the Scanner and Guard separately, so please select the corresponding module in the left panel:


  • Scanner -> Scan -> Exception


  • Guard -> Scan -> Exception

Then you can add files to be omitted for both Scanner and Guard in the configuration window. For Guard you may also specify processes to be omitted from scanning.
