Exceptions on Fresh Install

Recommended Posts

Hi all,
I'm a malware researcher and I've been wanting to install Malwarebytes onto one of my machines as a backup, and just because I know MWB is an awesome product from when I used it years ago. Last but not least, the blog post by Adam Kujawa a while back is what got me into this in the first place.

My only question is, is there some way to specify complete exceptions right off the bat before any action is taken when MWB is installed? Basically, I have files that I'm sure MWB will deem malicious on my computer in several areas that are safe (for my research purposes) and I don't want to install MWB and then immediately lose those files and/or have to go through some tedious process to get them back. What I would like to do is contain this stuff in several folders and specify those to MWB immediately so that this doesn't happen. Thanks.

Not on a computer using MBM, but there is a setting about quarantine  that can be unchecked. I always uncheck it because I prefer to double

check if it should be quarantined at all.
