Windows Defender in Windows 10 scans (and blocks) MySQL files on exclusion list RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    Someone on answers.microsoft.com adviced to post here. I have a problem with Winoows Defender and MySQL

    I have MySQL server on my computer since a long time, nowadays I upgraded to Windows 10 and now the Defender blocks the MySQL server. It became so slow, the PMA (on the same machine) timeouts. If I disable the Defender, it works good. I tried to add MyI, MyD and frm files extensions to the exclusion list, but it didn't work. I tried to add the MySQL data dir to the list, still bad. Finally I tried to add mysqld as executable to the list, but still I have to disable the Defender whenever I use my databases. (Additional information: these are huge databases, gigs)

    Is there a way to exclude the database from the realtime scanning?

    Thanks in advance
