    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. Windows Defender Antivirus Scan exclusions

    If there is anything in Windows Defender Exclusion list, then it won't be scan and if it is malicious program, it won't detect.

    It is better to remove all programs from exclusion list (if you didn't add them) and run a full system scan with Windows Defender.

    Windows Defender ignoring exclusions

    Hello JacenBoy,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I understand how frustrating it feels when such Setting stop functioning. To have better clarity on the issue and guide you accordingly, respond to the questions listed below:

    1. What is the make and model of the computer?
    2. Are you aware of any changes that happened on the computer?

    Meanwhile, if you are on Windows 10 Pro build, you will be able to access Group Policy settings. To configure exclusions to a folder or a file, can be enabled through gpedit. To do that, you may follow the article on

    Configure and validate exclusions based on file extension and folder location
    .

    We await your response.

    Regards,

    Mala.S
