    Hi All,

    Not sure if this is the right forum for this kind of discussion but may be you can provide me some pointers.

    I am trying to automate something where I am looking some cmdlets of powershell by which I can exclude some directories/file in Anti-Virus Exclusion List for ForeFront Endpoint.

    I checked Forefront Management Shell cmdlets but didn’t find any relevant command for this.

    Thanks to help me in this,

    Prem Chugh
