I found in my Mcafee exclusions 16 files and I am not sure where and what they are. Can you help me understand what they are and if I should remove or be worried?
%systemroot%\security\**\*.edb
%systemroot%\security\**\*.log
%systemroot%\security\**\*.sdb
%systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Datastore.edb
%systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Logs\Edb*.log
%systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Logs\Edb.chk
%systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Logs\edbres00001.jrs
%systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Logs\edbres00002.jrs
%systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Logs\Res1.log
%systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Logs\Res2.log
%systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Logs\Tmp.edb
%systemroot%\system32\GroupPolicy\registry.pol

What are the file extensions .edb, .sbd, .chk and .jrs?

Forever learning!

OK, these I figured out.. they are excluded to increase stability of the system?
%systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Datastore.edb
%systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Logs\Edb*.log
%systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Logs\Edb.chk
%systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Logs\edbres00001.jrs
%systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Logs\edbres00002.jrs
%systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Logs\Res1.log
%systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Logs\Res2.log
%systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\Logs\Tmp.edb

Not sure about the others yet.. am I right?

Registry.pol Files

The Administrative Templates extension of Group Policy saves information in the Group Policy template in text files with the name Registry.pol. These files contain the customized registry settings that are applied to the Machine or User portion of the registry which you specify using the Group Policy snap-in. The Windows 2000 Registry.pol file is analogous to the Windows 95 or Windows 98 Config.pol file and the Windows NT 4.0 NT Config.pol file.

Two Registry.pol files are created and stored in the Group Policy template, one for Computer Configuration, which is stored in the \Machine subdirectory, and one for User Configuration, which is stored in the \User subdirectory.

note-icon Note

The format of the .pol files in the Group Policy template differs from that of the .pol files in previous versions of Windows.

The .pol files created by Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 95 can be applied only to the operating system on which they were created. The .pol file produced by the Windows NT 4.0 System Policy Editor was a binary file, whereas the Registry.pol file produced by Administrative Templates node of the Group Policy snap-in is a text file with embedded binary strings.

To view .pol files without applying them to the registry, use the Regview.exe tool located on the Microsoft Windows 2000 Server Resource Kit companion CD.

For additional information about Registry.pol files, see the Microsoft Platform SDK link on the Web Resources page at http://windows.microsoft.com/windows2000/reskit/webresources .
