    Unable to Remove Exclusions from Windows Defender

    Thank you for posting back. If you trust a file, file type, folder, or a process that Windows Defender Antivirus has detected as malicious, you can stop Windows Defender Antivirus from alerting you or blocking the program by adding the file to
    the exclusion list. It seems that it was added automatically. We suggest that you follow these steps:

    • Go to Settings and select Update & security.
    • Click Windows Defender.
    • Look for Exclusions and select Add an exclusion.
    • Navigate to the file, folder, or process, and select Exclude this file.

    If the steps provided did not work, we recommend that you boot your device to
    Safe Mode
    and redo the process.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

  3. Unable to add exclusion in Windows Security

    Hello Paul.

    Windows Version 1903 (OS Build 18362.836)

    Controlled Folder Access is off.

    Following your suggestion, Windows Security allowed me to add the folder as an exclusion, and I was then able to also add the file in question as an exclusion.

    However, despite the file being listed under "Exclusions" it is still being deleted every time I copy it to the program's directory without any warnings or messages.

    How do I add exclusions?

    Windows Defender - The list of exclusions does not appear

    Registry permissions is definitely part of the problem, but not all. I saw weirdness even after carrying out the steps I mentioned above. Also, just yesterday, I launched the WD interface and my exclusions were not there. I added a new process exclusion and magically, all the other exclusions appeared as soon as I did that.

    Edit: All these weeks and many updates later, and the strangeness still occurs for me. I just clicked "Add or remove exclusions" and the list was empty. I backed out and clicked it again, and my two exclusions magically appeared. This is not just about registry permissions.
