Configure Windows Defender

Windows Defender may slow down your game on Voobly, therefore it is required to add a scan exception in Windows Defender. In order to do this, click the Windows Security Shield icon in the taskbar corner next to the system clock to open the Windows Security Center.

Click Virus & Threat Protection.

Click Manage Settings under Virus & Threat Protection.

Click Add or Remove Exclusions under Exclusions.

Click Add an Exclusion > Process.

Now add the file name of the game you are playing on Voobly, including the Voobly Client itself, one by one.

  • voobly.exe
  • age2_x1.exe
  • empires.exe
  • aomnocd.exe
  • aomxnocd.exe

You are done, when your exclusions are listed as shown in the screenshot below.
