for the same reason.
it blocks ANY attempt to write to Registry EVEN by known applications or applications I download.
I tried disabling and then d/l.
regrettably on the next boot I was blocked.
so finally disabled.
i feel it is almost the same as Outlook Express security setting of block attachments. It simply will not d/l them.
the idea of blocking unwanted intruson is wonderful, but i do not think the program has been modified to give users an 'over ride' option.
I have that option in my software firewall so it is really not a question of building a better door knob.
Kindly forgive me if this is old news. I have read through many posts at CNET in search for this information... and yet.. I am SURE this issue has been addressed here . I recently read where it was recommended to disable Spybot's TeaTimer and SpywareGuard, prior to fixing malware detected by MSAS. It further went on to state, they were finding these anti-spyware applications were blocking changes from being made to the Registry. Please note that Castlecops posted this back in April. For this reason, I believe it is old news at CNET and perhaps why I'm unable to find it. Is this information valid? If so, have any changes been made to correct it?
Please forgive these weary eye's..
