I know that it's the System Restore folder, and if a virus was there I won't be able to fix it so how can I add it to the exceptions? It will save a lot of time in running a full system scan.

Exclude files or processes from scanning in Avira

RE: System scan stops on tracking.log

If you want the whole folder to be skipped , add C:\System Volume Information. I would advise not turning off System Restore as a given workaround.

Yes you can add it.

System Volume Information, is your system restore files, and as such there is no real need to scan these. If system restore is actually used, then Guard will pick up on any malware restored with it. Otherwise it's safe to exclude, as malware cannot run from it.
