inputs.conf blacklist example

Not a question. I struggled with working getting the regex syntax correct for a while to blacklist some noisy event code items and wanted to post my successful strings. Just in case someone else searches and finds this useful. 

blacklist1 = EventCode="4688" Message="New Process Name:\s+(?:[C-F]:\\(?:Program Files\\SplunkUniversalForwarder|Splunk)\\bin\\(?:splunk|splunkd|splunk-optimize|splunk-powershell|splunk-admon|splunk-netmon|splunk-MonitorNoHandle|python3|btool)\.exe)

blacklist2 = EventCode="(4663|4660|4907)" Message="Process Name:\s+(?:[C-F]:\\(?:Program Files\\Microsoft Configuration Manager\\bin\\X64|Program Files \W\w{3}\W\\Symantec\\Symantec Endpoint Protection\\\d{1,5}\.\d{1,5}\.\d{1,5}\.\d{1,5}\.\d{1,5}\\Bin64|Program Files\\SMS_CCM|Windows\\System32|Windows\\System32\\(?:inetsrv|wbem)|.WINDOWS.~BT\\Sources|Windows\\WinSxS\\amd64_microsoft-windows-servicingstack_\w{16,20}\.+\d\.+\d{1,6}\.+\w{22,30})\\(?:smsexec|sitecomp|TiWorker|SetupHost|WmiPrvSE|w3wp|poqexec|CcmExec|ccSvcHst)\.exe)

I'm a novice with regex so there might be some ways to clean this up and make it shorter, but it works. If anyone has simplification recommendations, feel free to share.

I forgot to add the final " at the end of each. regex101.com doesn't like them so I removed for the purpose of troubleshooting.
