How to set Antivirus Exclusions for BitDefender Total Security on PC Running Windows 10

  1. First, open the following link and proceed with the instructions to disable all modules. (
       These modules MUST be disabled for InterGuard to be installed properly. Once the modules are         disabled, proceed to Step 2.
  1. The left-hand side should be a menu with options; click on ‘Settings’. In the ‘Settings’ tab should be a row with options. Click on ‘Profiles’ and under ‘Activate Profiles Manually’, select the ‘Game profile’ option and activate it. This setting is CRUCIAL and needs to remain on for InterGuard to function correctly.
  1. Go to and log in to access the installation files. Follow the instructions and complete the installation. DO NOT REBOOT THE COMPUTER UPON FINISHING THE INSTALLATION.
  1. Open up the main dashboard again and select ‘Protection’ from the menu on the left-hand side. Select ‘Settings’ under the ‘Antivirus’ column. Select ‘Exceptions’ and hit ‘Add’. Find the installation file path where InterGuard is located and add this file path to the exclusions. The correct installation path can be found on the InterGuard dashboard, under ‘Settings > Account Information'. For this example, our installation file path is ‘C:\Windows\SysWOW64\dmktc’. This will allow you to enable the antivirus features without damaging/quarantining the InterGuard program files.
  1. Reboot your system and enable all modules again to reactivate BitDefender. Your system is now ready to run InterGuard.
    Note: BitDefender’s ‘Advanced Threat Detection’ may identify ‘svchost.exe’ as malware. This can be bypassed by going to the ‘Settings’ option under ‘Advanced Threat Detection’ and excluding ‘svcboot.exe’ from scanning.
