Note that not all versions of McAfee allow for this process, but here are the instructions if your version does.   If your version does not allow this, you may need to turn off your Antivirus/Firewall in order to use the software without issues.



Go to Start > All Programs > McAfee

Now open VirusScan Console as shown in following snapshot.




Following window will open as soon as you click on VirusScan Console option.

Click on All Processes > Exclusions tabExclusions > click on Add button to add exclusions in the list.

You can refer following snapshot for your convenience.



In the below snapshot you can see I have added “C:\Program Files\Testing Software\” in the exclusions list.

While adding any folder in exclusion list, don’t forget to check “Also exclude subfolders”, “On read” and One write” option.

Click on OK to continue.


I hope this helps you to add your website folders or any application files (.exe) in McAfee exclusion.


Folders to exclude from scans are:

C:\Program Files (x86)\SportsVision  (Swing Analysis software and Interface Program)

C:\Program Files (x86)\P3ProSwing Virtual Golf Courses  (Virtual Golf software)

If you're using a 32-bit Operating System, there will not be an '(x86)' after Program files.
