I would say exclude all file extensions you see in your backup repository, as .VBK, .VIB, .VBM...

Plus the default Veeam Endpoint backup location (C:\Program Files\Veeam) and if possible its good to have the Veeam Endpoint Backup service whitelisted. Just out of curiosity what is the AV software you are referring to?

I am running a machine with McAfee VirusScan Enterprise + AntiSpyware Enterprise 8.8 (Patch 2) and when attempt to run the VEB installer it detects McAfee scanner and says to whitelist or disable.

1. I have attempted to disable and stop McAfee services...
2. How do you whitelist in McAfee - one for them I suppose.?
3. I have added exclusions of directories mentioned in KB2034: How to add Veeam Endpoint Backup to antivirus exclusions list http://www.veeam.com/kb2034

1 and 3 performed but still get the dialog from the VEB installer.
Backup Infrastructure: Veeam B&R 9.5 • vSphere 5.5 U3e • HP MSA 2040 [FC] (Backup Storage) • HP MSL6480 LTO-6 (Tape Storage)
(Veeam Endpoint Backup protecting Veeam Proxy / Tape / Repository servers)

Stuart,
The dialog is a friendly reminder to the actions you’ve already performed – simply ignore the dialog, since so you are good to go further.
