I have HitmanPro.Alert and it keeps falsely detecting a video game that I play. I have played this game in the past, so I do know that it's a false positive. Does anyone here know if there a way to add an exclusion for this file? Thanks :)

I don't have any experience with Hitman Pro Alert but see the second post here. You may need to enable Advanced Menu Settings.

 

Open Hitman Pro Alert and select Exploit Mitigation. Select Applications then Exclude. Browse to your game's exe file.

If you have specific questions or encounter problems using HitmanPro too include false detections of legitimate files, they should be reported to the development team.You can report issues, ask questions and make suggestions in this official HitmanPro support topic where the developer provides assistance.

go to exploit mitigation > Applications > (scroll right ) under "exclude" column , browse to the executable(s) and select it.

If it is a false detection...it still should be reported.

Yeah, I'll report it to them. Do I report it by emailing their support or posting on their forum?

Either way will work. I prefer reporting in the forum as it lets others know about the detection.
