HI,
I have excluded boinc data, boinc and vbox from av scanning.
However when staring a task, i still notice significant activity from the av.
Does anyone have an idea, how to stop the av from scanning the incoming data?

Not Kaspersky, by any chance? :-/
I'd imagine it's hard to tell any AV to exclude incoming data for a given programme. That specificity is probably hard to achieve without delving very deeply into the OS's innards.

I have found that for many of the AVs, the exclusions only apply to the scans (i.e., a daily scheduled scan), but not to the real-time protection. That has caused me infinite trouble, and I limit the use of AVs. On my main machine, I use only Windows Defender (spyware only on Win7), which causes no problems, and on my dedicated machines, I don't use any at all, since they run only distributed computing work.

But I think that if you want to try another AV, the Panda (free) exclusions work, and also the Avira (free), the last time I tried them.

Thanks for the replies.
I will try one of the two AVs mentioned.
I am using AVG, currently.
