I have a lot of drive space and I want to limit the items scanned as a virus scan can take all day. I go to Advanced Options - Scan Targets - Local Hard Drives. I am able to disable the scanning of some folders but with other (non system) folders I get an error when I select them. The error comes when I try to exit this setup. I get an error message that the program was unable to synchronize the data and I have to cancel the changes. I then find that my Anti Virus program will not update and upon reboot the Anti-Virus is disabled. I find the easiest way to recover is to reload a saved configuration file. The only difference in the configuration is the new changes to the scan targets. This has been a problem for a long time.
