Lync 2010
Dynamics AX

        For versions up to AX 2009 exclude:
  1. All the AOD, AOI, ADD, ADI, KHD & KHI files, or
  2. alternatively, the whole application folder

       See for instance:        http://blogs.msdn.com/b/czdaxsup/archive/2010/05/13/ax-application-files-locked-by-another-process.aspx

Note: Doing this helps make sure that the files are not locked when the AOS must use them. However, if these files become infected, your antivirus software will not be able to detect the infection.
