How to add wildcard *\ or \*.* in URL path in Allow list?

Recommended Posts

I need to install FlexiSPY on an autistic child's computer, in order to monitor, what triggers his behavior at certain moments. This is very important for this family, but Malwarebytes blocks for this program to run (which I totally understand). FlexiSPY has listed the following instructions to add exemptions to the allow list in Malwarebytes, but I am not able to enter the path as suggested by FlexiSpy


Here are the items, which needs to be entered in the allow list in Malwarebytes. 



Instructions for those with  64-bit  computers
  1. Exclude the following  Folders
    1. C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Provisioning\*.*
    2. *\AppData\Roaming\Windows Provisioning\*
  2. Exclude the following  Process
    1. *\svcAppLookup.exe
  3. Whitelist the following  URL (if option is available)
    1. https://d3vet6saktm3ad.cloudfront.net/*

Malwarebytes Support Tool - Advanced Options

This feature is designed for the following reasons:

  • For use when you are on the forums and need to provide logs for assistance

  4. Navigate to the Advanced tab
  5. The Advanced menu page contains four categories:
    • Gather Logs: Collects troubleshooting information from the computer. As part of this process, Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) is run to perform a complete diagnosis. The information is saved to a file on the Desktop named mbst-grab-results.zip and can be added as an email attachment or uploaded to a forum post to assist with troubleshooting the issue at hand.
    • Clean: Performs an automated uninstallation of all Malwarebytes products installed to the computer and prompts to install the latest version of Malwarebytes for Windows afterwards. The Premium license key is backed up and reinstated. All user configurations and other data are removed. This process requires a reboot.
    •  Repair System: Includes various system-related repairs in case a Windows service is not functioning correctly that Malwarebytes for Windows is dependent on. It is not recommended to use any Repair System options unless instructed by a Malwarebytes Support agent.
    • Anonymously help the community by providing usage and threat statistics: Unchecking this option will prevent Malwarebytes Support Tool from sending anonymous telemetry data on usage of the program.

Hello and Welcome to Malarebytes...

Sorry your having issues with our software.... If I am not mistaken you can not use wildcards to exclude items and or folders, staff can correct me if I am wrong.

Open Malwarebytes and go to Settings -> Allow List
Click on Add
Click on Allow a file or folder
     Exclude the following Folder (Whole folder) (noticed I removed the *.*)
        C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Provisioning\

    For this one the * in the front just means to go to the path where you profile is listed for example < C:\Users\Maria\AppData\Roaming\Windows Provisioning\ >
        *\AppData\Roaming\Windows Provisioning\

    Exclude the following  Process (same thing here, find where this file was installed on your computer

On this one you need to Add it as
    Whitelist the following  URL (if option is available) (notice I removed the * at the end)

Edited by Firefox
corrected exclusions
