    I'm not sure what you mean by the registry values no being set. It's shown as set in your first screenshot.

    Just to verify, did you delete the Path key in the registry? Usually, you'll have to change the owner of the key to "Administrators", and "allow" Administrators "Full control" of the key first, then delete it.

    If so, then I'm not sure why they are not being shown in Settings when you added them from Settings.

    No I did not delete the "Path" key from the registry I just deleted the contents within the "Path" key...

    I'll try deleting the "Path" key now and reset and see what happens.....

    **EDIT**
    Fixed... deleting the "Path" key in the registry as you advised and then resetting the PC brings them back...

    thank you so much....

    cheers

    Hi Shawn,
    just upgraded Windows to OS build 10586.3 & was attempting to install MBAM alongside Defender & set up the exclusions. I don't see an option to browse to the process that I would like to exclude as before - in Defender.
    I can enter the fully qualified path name e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbam.exe but it seems the option to browse the directories should still be there.
    Am I missing something?

    thanks,
    richie

    Hello Richie,

    Are you using step 4 in OPTION ONE to "Exclude a file" under "Files and folders"?

    Thanks for responding Shawn,
    I am referring to Step 7 in Option One for excluding a process.
    Just typed in the fully qualified path name but that's not nearly as easy as browsing to the folder.

    I noticed that too, now they want you to fetch the 'path' yourself.

    Easiest way is: navigate to the item, Shift/Right Click/Copy as Path and Paste into the dialog but remove the quotation marks.

    OK - thanks, I'll make a note of that for next time. I typed all 5 processes that wanted to exclude & am the worst typist in the interweb realm.

    Thanks Edwin

    I'm curious about the exclusions. Do they only relate to real time protection? Say I exclude a folder. On the occasions I decide to run a manual scan I'd still want that folder to be scanned. I just don't want it to be slowed down and subjected to real time protection.

    Thanks,
    Wayne

    You'd have to drag the item out of the excluded folder to be scanned, otherwise, it will just say "Scan Completed on 0 Items".
