Adaware antivirus free keeps deleting file I added to exceptions

Question

Ok, so I've installed Adaware antivirus free, because I thought I'll try something else than Avast free.

I play a game called Tibia on open servers (old, unofficial verision) and I use an old bot (Elf) with crack.

First time I've downloaded that crack, Avast moved it to its virus chest telling me it's a virus/trojan/whatever.

On Avast I could click "restore & add to exceptions list" once and it all worked fine (unless I chang the name of that crack of course, but that's quite obvious).

Ok, so today I wanted to play Tibia with my bot's crack with brand new Adaware antivirus free on my PC.

It moved bot's crack to the quarantine directory, but that was something I was expecting, so I clicked "restore".

Adaware antivirus free didn't ask me to add this file to exceptions.

I tried to run bot's crack again and Adaware blocked it again.

I've found the "Manage exclusions" and I added bot's crack into the "Paths excluded".

I tried to run bot's crack again and Adaware blocked it again.

I've disabled "Real-time protection" and now it's working fine - what the heck...?

Why Adaware is blocking my file after I've added it to the exclusions list?

Hi Sengoku,

If this is what you've done: https://www.adaware.com/user-guide/manage_exclusions
it's a setting for scheduled and on-demand scan, not for real-time protection as you noticed.

This page and its sub-pages describes the settings of the real-time protection: https://www.adaware.com/user-guide/rtp
But I'm not sure that you can do what you want to do.

Actually shouldn't the option ""add to exceptions list" work? 

Adaware should take such feedback positively and improve.

There is a special topic for suggestions: https://forum.adaware.com/index.php?/topic/35021-suggestions-ideas-what-features-would-you-like-to-see/

There might also be persons that prefer the current solution.
