All the windows executables. .vbs .js , ...

Here only .txt, tgz, .patch tar.gz .diff
but never executables.

The mcaffe list extension to explore are these

.asp .bat .cdr .com .csc .dl? .doc .dot .exe .gms .hlp .ht? .ini .js? .ocx
.ole .ov? .pot .pp? .rtf .scr .shs .smm .sys .vbs .vs? .vxd .wbk .wpd .xl?


A least I think this a very useful list to exclude from this list.
