  1. Greetings! I'm testing Adaware, starting with the free version (12.0.649.11190, running on Windows 10 Pro v 1607 - I've not updated to the "Creators'" version yet), to see if it'll be suitable for my purposes, as I run a number of cryptocurrency miners and practically everyone that makes anti-malware software treats a miner as a trojan. So, exclusions are the name of the game. However, Adaware's automated scans seem to ignore exclusions. This is a problem. A big, big problem. I've had Adaware destroy the miner on my testbed system twice now, both times thanks to an automated scan auto-firing overnight and despite having the miner's path clearly listed in the "paths excluded" list. I have since disabled automatic scanning, in order to see if this is a suitable workaround that corrects the behavior. If the miner gets removed a third time, Adaware will be removed immediately after and I'll move on to test something else until I find a product that's well-behaved enough within the context of my usage conditions to justify my money. Is this behavior intended? If so, who thought it was a smart idea to have automatic scans ignore exclusions? Doesn't that defeat the entire point and purpose of having exclusions in the first place?
