    In AVG v8

    From Overview, click Resident Shield> Manage Exceptions

    Then click Edit List and type in the path to the file you want ignored.

    If you can't remember it, look in History> Resident Shield Detection. Unfortunately you can't cut and paste it across..I have no idea why they have made it so difficult in recent versions :(

    Although you can Export the whole list to a file, and cut n paste from there...when you've found it amongst everything else.

    Please DO NOT turn off the resident shield, that's just asking for trouble.
