If you are using anti-virus software, set up an exclusion or an exception within your anti-virus software for the following folders:

  • ACSNET - located on your network drive
  • WINACS - located on your C drive
  • ACS Technologies - located in C:\ProgramData

Hidden Files

 If any of these folders do not display, they may be hidden files.

You should also set up an exclusion or an exception for the following programs, all located in C:\WINACS:

  • acspe.exe
  • acsfin.exe
  • awupdater.exe
  • awback32.exe

Sometimes anti-virus software incorrectly flags a trusted file as a harmful file. Since this may occur with these files and folders, setting up an exclusion or an exception prevents your anti-virus software from taking action against them.

Folder Permissions

In addition to setting up exclusions within your anti-virus software, you also need to set permissions for certain folders.
