Impero injects a DLL into all running processes in order to monitor running applications. You can use the “Tools > Injection Exclusions” menu item in the Impero Server to stop Impero from injecting this DLL if there are certain applications that you do not wish to be monitored.

In order to add a new exclusion to the list, type in the name of the application executable (i.e. notepad.exe, winword.exe) into the 'Application' text field and a brief description of the application you are excluding into the 'Description' text area. Then click on the 'Add Exclusion' button, and then 'OK'.  

As the following dialogue box will indicate, in some cases the remote computer will need to be restarted in order for the exclusion to take effect.


If you need to remove any of the exclusions, simply click on the 'Remove' button on the right of any of the applications in the list.


Hint: A good way of finding out the executable name of an application is to find the shortcut icon for that application, right-click and select 'Properties'. Select the 'Shortcut' tab, and look in the 'Target' field. The final part of this path should show you the executable name, ending in .exe.
