Hello !

I see the question for the right syntax over and over in the internet and even
here in this forum - the most answers are wrong and the real working syntax
is in RTFM.

In the lines below, I use square brackets instead of angle brackets - I found
no way with this forum editor to show angle brackets the right way ....

Code:

[.*\\Temporary Internet Files\\.*]
[.*\\UsrClass\.dat.*]
[.*\\NTUSER\.DAT.*]
[.*\\LocalLow\\Microsoft.*]
[.*\\Windows\\Webcache.*]


This is for directories on windows 7 below the users home.

This does not mean, I recommend the use of this filters. Viruses may be
"everywhere". I had to exlude this, because my online scanner denies access
to clamscan in this directories and I would get rid of the error messages ...

The manual should be more explicit.
If output logging would properly work, one would verify this very fast.
I had to put a virus into this directories to verify it!

Hope this helps.

Best regards,

Manfred
