Antivirus directory exceptions

Does anyone see any potential issues with the following directory exceptions (using Bitdefender Cloud for Endpoint Security).

I'm pretty sure most of these exclusions came from Trend Micro's recommended exclusion lists, but I'm pretty sure they are several years old at this point.

1. %WinDir%\IIS Temporary Compressed Files
2. %WinDir%\NTDS
3. %WinDir%\ntfrs
4. %WinDir%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore
5. %WinDir%\System32\dhcp
6. %WinDir%\System32\dns
7. %WinDir%\System32\LogFiles
8. %WinDir%\System32\spool
9. %WinDir%\sysvol
10. C:\inetpub\logs\
11. C:\inetpub\temp\IIS Temporary Compressed Files
12. C:\inetpub\wwwroot
13. C:\WINNT\NTDS
14. C:\WINNT\SYSVOL

File Extension Exclusions:
edb,sdb,chk,jrs,dit,pat,mdf,ldf,ndf,bak,trn,vmdk,vmem,avhd,iso,vfd,vhd,vsv,log,dat,tmp,pol,pf

Those seem OK.. I use most of them in my exceptions list as well. If you are protecting an Exchange server or SQL server, you  may want to add some of those folders in as well, but I'd check with your vendor or MS for the specifics.

I checked with Bitdefender. They claim that Exchange, SQL, etc. exclusions are already built-in.

And that may be... each vendor is different. As far as I know what I use has no exceptions built in, but they recommend certain ones that basically agree with what you put in your Question. In fact I don't think I've ever used one that had it built in, of course I've never used BD.
