File exclusion during real-time scanning

CatchPulse will prompt you when there is a threat detected. When you are sure that it is not a threat, click Ignore Permanently. This will put the file into the list of exclusions which will be excluded from real-time scanning. You will not be prompted for further action on the file anymore.

If you have reason to believe that this file is no longer safe, you have to manually remove it from the list of exclusions for it to be included in the scan and be prompted if a threat is detected
