The following items will need to have exclusions added to any Firewall and or Anti-virus depending on what services the salon is using.  The database files and services are constantly being used and updated, so some anti-virus programs will scan the entire database before a change is allowed.  This will dramatically slow down your computer.  Adding an exclusion for known good files will keep this from happening and can reduce the chance for false positives to occur.

We recommend Kaspersky Anti-virus to our clients as that is what we use here. SalonTouch will work with any anti-virus program as long as it supports adding exclusions.  You can contact your anti-virus provider for information on how to add exclusions to it.
