Adding Exclusions for file folders & Processes


Recommended Posts

I get the necessities for the Auto Added/Loaded exclusions, it's good stuff, how do I Manually Add Exclusions?


My file transfer rates are pathetic 15-60Mb/s this seems universal issue on all my computers average speeds Disk to Disk on same computer 120-180Mb/s and to NAS drive NAS 80-120. I think its caused by scanning or overscanning files as they are transferred (music, video, photos, compressed folders, programs,...). Cisco Security Endpoint eats up 80-100% CPU for the duration, but RAM is ok. With Windows Defender I added exclusions for processes (windows explorer, PLEX transcoding, FileZilla, and certain folders and files. This approached worked well for WinDefender when it had the same issue. I can send  computer specs  but they aren't junk or logs for Immunet if it helps but I dont have debug logging running usually.


For the life of me I cant find how to manually add my own exclusions as above reasoning. I see threats that get quarantined and designated safe (returned) become exclusions but this isnt helpful for my problem.


Please help its driving me nuts I dont want to uninstall (other than to clean install)


Thanks in advance

If you open up Immunet's main screen, click on "settings", scroll down and expand all the sections, and you'll eventually scroll down to a list of exclusions, with the option to add a new one. You can set the type of exclusion and its name/path. I would recommend setting the type to "file/folder", and either typing the location to exclude or navigating to it with the "browse" option. Then click "add exclusion".

I find Immunet a bit too buggy and it seems now to be completely unsupported so don't use it much anymore, so I can't remember what other types of exclusions there are. I'm not sure it gives the option of "process" exclusions.

You can speed up installations and file transfers by disabling "blocking mode" in the settings, with a significant tradeoff in security. Another option would be to leave blocking-mode enabled, but disable the ClamAV engine, as that's normally the bottleneck during scanning (it's quite CPU intensive), and provides little additional protection if you're online. Another option would be to disable all Immunet's scanning capabilities during large file transfer operations, but re-enable them after.
