Add exclusion for task.

Recommended Posts

Hello all.

I'm constantly having to untick a task after scan as I don't wish it to be cleaned - task is situated C:\Windows\System32\Tasks\Driver Booster Scheduler - but none of the entries to add it under work, I though 'File' would be best but it states to "insert an existing file", if the file isn't there why does a scan find it.
How do I add this to the exclusion list?

I had EXACTLY the same issue with ADWCleaner wanting to disable a RETAIL product that I have PAID for?????

I have added a few exclusions to the Exclusion section of Settings. I found that I could add a PUP string into the Family section of the exclusion 
and from the log I added a Registry Key which has fixed the issue. I do hope that helps someone. :)

The problem is that, in 64bits machines, the OS is redirecting  C:\Windows\System32\Tasks to C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\Tasks,  and that's why the file doesn't "exist".

This will be fixed in v 7.2.2.


Asks Elizabeth, any news on when that version will be available?
