I research this sort of thing and don't really want it to be quarantining the hacking tools as malware, because they aren't really.

Well I mean you can go into the MSE settings and just exclude a directory, is that a good enough compromise? I suppose it wouldn't work if a hacktool you happen to have was actually infected, though.

As far as I know you can't get it to exclude a class of threat, merely a filetype or file/location.
