Legitimate program blocked by Auto-Protect
For a long time I have used a small utility, DShutdown, to automate system shutdown after completion of various tasks. While running ZoneAlarm, that was no problem. However, since switching to NIS 2009, Auto-Protect has blocked DShutdown.exe which it identifies as Adware.gen.
I'm comfortable that DShutdown is not a threat, but I'm unable to find any means to get NIS to ignore it. Adding it to the scan exclusion lists has no effect. Is there some way to tell Auto-Protect to ignore/exclude this program?
