There is no list of paths.

This option excludes files and folders that have the SYSTEM attribute set.

For some reason C:\Windows does not have the SYSTEM attribute set.
If you wish to exclude C:\Windows you would need to add this folder manually:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Exclude tab on the left.
  • Click Add....
  • Select C:\Windows and click OK.
  • Click OK.
I am considering excluding C:\Windows automatically when Exclude system files and folders is checked.
