How to: Add Exception to Antivirus

Last modified:

If you experience any issues with the game while running an Antivirus software, it is always useful to check if the game is not being blocked by the automatic antivirus detection algorithm. You can always try to launch the game with the Antivirus software disabled or add the game to the exceptions both as the game and as the folder location.

For example, for Windows Security, you can find this option by following the steps below.

Step by Step

  1. Navigate to Start > Settings > Update & Security > Windows Security > Virus & threat protection.
  2. In the tab for Virus & threat protection settings, choose Manage settings, and then under Exclusions, select Add or remove exclusions.
  3. Select Add an exclusion, and then select all relevant files - and it is done after you save!
