Adding A Keylogger To Norton Anti-virus Exceptions

Even if the keylogger works well without being added, and your anti-virus doesn’t detect it, it’s always wise to add the keylogger to the exceptions list anyway. This ensures that the keylogger or computer monitoring software doesn’t get detected at a later date unexpectedly, which could happen when Norton Anti-virus updates it’s definitions.

Adding any program to Norton’s exceptions is quick and easy, but could vary slightly depending on what version of Norton you have installed on your machine. With a bit of common sense, it’s very easy to do.

Presuming you have Norton 2008 installed, follow these simple steps:

  1. Within the Norton Anti-virus user interface click the settings link, next to the Computer category.
  1. Look for the category that says ‘Exclusions/Low Risks”.
  1. Click ‘Configure’ which is next to scan exclusions.
  1. Click ‘Add’ and browse to the folder that contains the program you want excluded, usually within the Program Files directory.
  1. Click ‘Apply’ followed by ‘OK’ and you’re done.


NOTE: Gecko Monitor is not located in the Program Files directory. Browse to and add the following folder to add Gecko Monitor to Norton’s exceptions:

 If using 64bit Windows:
C: > Windows > SysWOW64 > Catroot > {GEC0AA…

Or if using 32bit Windows:
C: > Windows > System32 > Catroot > {GEC0AA…
