Table Ninja 2 and Antivirus Software


Table Ninja needs to interact freely with your poker client. To let Table Ninja 2 work correct, you should add it’s executable file to your antivirus exceptions.

Then, do the same for the poker client executable and for some specific folders on your PC - a folder where Table Ninja and poker client store their files and hand histories.

Most antiviruses provide the ability to grant certain programs varying levels of protection called exceptions. Exceptions deviate from “general” antivirus rules. Do this by configuring the antivirus and locating a section called “Program Control”, “Process Control”, “Application Control” or something along those lines.
In cases where an exe is listed that is in the folder that is also listed, it needs to be individually exempted.

The full list of programs and processes to add is:

Table Ninja 2:
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\PASG\TN2\Tableninja2.exe
  • C:\Users\Windows_User_Name\AppData\Roaming\TableNinja.v2 (entire folder) **

Poker Stars:

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\PokerStars\PokerStars.exe
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\PokerStars\PokerStarsUpdate.exe
  • C:\Users\Windows_User_Name\AppData\Local\PokerStars (entire folder) **

Full Tilt Poker:

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Full Tilt Poker\FullTiltPoker.exe
  • C:\Users\Windows_User_Name\Documents\HandHistory (entire folder) **

Party Poker:

  • C:\Programs\PartyGaming\PartyGaming.exe
  • C:\Programs\PartyGaming\PartyPoker\HandHistory (entire folder)

Bwin Poker:

  • C:\Programs\bwincom\bwincom.exe
  • C:\Programs\bwincom\bwincomPoker\HandHistory (entire folder)


  • C:\Poker\Ipoker_Client_name\Casino.exe
  • C:\Poker\Ipoker_Client_name\History (entire folder)
