    Is there an adm or script that I can run to exclude certain files or
    locations from Windows Defender? The current available adm does not include
    that functionality.
    Thanks.

    What is Adm in this context?

    Stu;

    ..ADM files are template files that are used by Group Policies to describe
    where registry-based policy settings are stored in the registry. ADM files
    also describe the user interface that administrators see in the Group
    Policy Object Editor snap-in. Group Policy Object Editor is used by
    administrators when they create or modify Group Policy objects (GPOs).

    Use notepad to edit (look at) your C:WINDOWS/inf/windowsdefender.adm file,
    scroll to the bottom and you'll see the explanations for the GPO controls.
    Close that notepad window without saving when your through. I know what it
    does, but have never done it, so perhaps a Sysadmin can add more...

    The current Group Policy file for windows defender does not any options for
    file or folder exclusions. I was wondering if someone created a custom
    policy file or had some script to handle exclusions.

    The only advice I have seen on here relating to your issue has been a
    recommendation to take a look at MS Forefront Client Security.
