Working with Your Existing Antivirus

ThreatLocker plays nicely with existing antivirus software. We will neither conflict nor interfere with your AV software from running. However, you may need to create exceptions to prevent your antivirus software from blocking ThreatLocker. We recommend you exclude the following files from scanning:
