This solution addresses Webroot SecureAnywhere
If you want more control over scans and shielding when Webroot SecureAnywhere encounters a specific executable file, you can use Block/Allow Files to specify one of the following actions:
- Allow. Ignore the file during scans and shielding.
- Block. Stop a file from executing or being written to your computer.
- Monitor. Watch the program to determine if it is legitimate or related to malware.
Block/Allow Files acts as an override to Webroot SecureAnywhere's default scanning and shielding behavior.
To use manually block or allow files:
- Open SecureAnywhere and click the gear icon next to PC Security.
- Open the Block/Allow Files tab to open the list of manually detected files.
- You can add executable files to this list. (Executable files typically have an extension of exe, dll, sys, drv, or com.) To do this, click the Add File button. You can also drag and drop a file from Explorer.
The file name appears in the File column. (If Webroot SecureAnywhere detected other copies of this file with different file names, it only shows the file name that it last detected.)
- In the right column, select the radio button for either Allow, Block, or Monitor.
If you want to clear the list, click the Remove all button.
