Files to exclude from Trend

Revised 1/26/2005


Here’s an ongoing list of directories and files to be excluded from Trend scanning:


C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr
C:\Program Files\Trend
C:\Program Files\Trend Micro
C:\Pagefile.sys
C:\WinNT\System32\Inetsrv


Licensing stuff:
C:\Windows\System32\licstr.cpa
C:\Windows\System32\lls


Also, make sure that any other Antivirus apps quarantine files are not scanned. E.g. Officescan, Interscan etc may all have files that are viruses removed from incoming/outgoing emails etc. There is no need to let Trend give you false positives

  1. Kevin,

    Not sure If you’ve seen this before, but my bcakups failed continually until I moved c:\program files\trend\smcf\quarantine to d:\trend\smcf\quarantine then excluded from backup. Been fighting with it for awhile. Chris Puckett offered the solution above to take Trend out of the \windows, \program files, or \documents and settings folders. With it out of any of the above the folder could then be excluded. Seemed VSS and the Real Time Scan in Trend kept scanning the quarantined files. Resulting in a failed backup because the backup program could not access the files: reason "access is denied".

    Thanks,

  2. Bill, I never encountered that problem; but then again – I always install my apps, including Trend, to something other than the C: drive on my servers. Thanks for point this out.

  3. Hi Kevin,

    You should not ever locate any data on C: (or wherever you install Windows to). All data – including quarantined files – should be on a partition other than the Boot and/or system partitions. The main reason is to ensure that the boot and/or system partitions do not fill up, causing Windows to crash.
