    How do you setup Online Armor Free to default deny all new or unknown executables/files from running?

    During the setup process it gave me the option to auto allow anything already on the computer (it's a fresh install so it's malware free). But now I want to deny any new/unknown files from running.

    If you choose "Close GUI interface" from tray menu all unknown programs will be blocked.

    If you start the GUI interface again, there will be a window with all blocked programs and you can decide what to do with these programs.

    Cheers

    Thanks. I'm guessing setting up a password to enable/disable the GUI is also a must since I don't want her ever installing new programs on her pc.

    Quick other question, should I also disable the notifications for when OA blocks/allows programs running?

    I basically want it where it's default deny and with no popups. This is going to be her first line of defense (well that and a LUA) since she's running no other security software on her machine. It's an older laptop with WinXP Home and only 256 megs of RAM.

    There shouldn't be any pop-ups or alerts when the GUI is closed.
    I didn't test this as I always disable all notifications, but I don't think that there will be any.

    Cheers
