    Hi I am embarrassed to ask this but what exactly do I place in the watch list of File checker? Do I add all the files under lets say the zonealarm folder or just the exe file. I have zonealarm, avg anti-virus, spy blocker. If some1 could tell me what files I should place there, I 'd appreciate it. Do I need to place any windows files there?

    Vavoom - Welcome to the forum!

    Probably the best thing you can do is to read through all the threads here in this forum and see what other people have put in theirs. Note especially the examples that javacool himself gives in some of the threads, and also the ability to have associated dll's in there, too.

    Specifically, for ZoneAlarm, you can add all the executables in that folder, plus any dlls in that folder.

    As for Windows files, at a minimum, winsock.dll is recommended (in your Windows/System or System32 folder). Some people have also placed Internet Explorer in the FileChecker watch-list (typically iexplore.exe) to make sure no trojans try to make alterations.

    I do not remember the files AVG is associated with, so I'd recommend putting the AVG executables in there. (Same with SpyBlocker).

    Just some helpful tips.
